If a gun has a thumb safety, it's a good idea to use it. However, I'm the kind of person who only believes in the need for a mechanical safety for guns like a 1911 and Browning Hi-Power. For everything else, a decocker is more than enough if they even have a hammer.

You can decock it and leave the safety off and it still won't fire. 13lb trigger pull =
