Is there a downside to removing the trigger safety on, say, an SR9, which has a thumb (real) safety. Those little dinguses have always annoyed me, and I think if a pistol has a real safety, it’s not necessary. What say you?

P.S. I’m only interested in the safety aspect, not what some ambulance chasing lawyer might think.

My understanding is the trigger safety is there to protect against the pistol firing when dropped, and the trigger moving on inertia

Google the drop firing of the original Sig 320 before they incorporated the safety upgrade. If the pistol was dropped just right, it would fire. The original release of that pistol did not include a trigger safety.

I assume the SR9 could do the same thing if the trigger safety was removed.
