    Still a few new "DC" versions around

    I think if you look around you can still find a new "Decock" version in a gun shop or one of the big chain stores like Gander Mountain, Sportmans Warehouse, Cabela's, etc. I know our local Gander Mountain still has a few new P95's in the Decock version. I was there just today looking around and saw that they stll had them.

    I thought they all had decockers still, as a standard feature. Turn the safety on, the hammer drops. The P90, for example, has a decocker feature standard. The P90D is discontinued, but the current P90 has it? What's the difference?

    On the safety models when you decock, the gun is on safety. You have to push the lever back up off safe or the gun won't fire. On the decocker model you decock and the gun is ready to go. You don't have to worry about forgetting to take the safety off which I think is better on the decocker models. Mark

    Not that it really matters since you can immediately turn the safety back off after decocking it. I like it because it ensures it's on safety as the hammer drops, which prevents an accidental discharge that can occur if the trigger is bumped as the decocker is activated.
