Hello: I recently purchased a Stery M9-A1 upon the recommendation of a salesperson at Cabelas. My intention is to use it as a concealed weapon as I have completed my CWP course in Missouri and 'am awaiting the final background check etc., to be completed.

Is there a draw back to this weapon in that there is no (per say) a manual safety.

Thanks

C. Kirby

Welcome aboard!!
Drawbacks?!? I cant find a M357A1 to buy and shoot.
I have a M9 and M40 A1.
Love'm and would not trade them in, EVER.

As for the safety, keep your finger off the trigger!

Last one I saw was on GunBroker, went for $450 I think.
That is one SWEET Pistol. And rare too, not many 357's A1 w/safety were imported into the US.
If you really really want one, then $500 or less is worth it IMHO as you wont see another one unless your Babj's.

Manual safety's are a personal choice. I have an S9, S40, M40 and an M9-A1. All of them have the manual safety and whenever I carry one of my S-models I always have one in the tube with the safety on. The Steyr safety is so easy to manipulate with one finger that I see no downside to using it. However, my Primary carry weapon is a Radom P64 with manual thumb safety and I never carry it with the safety on.

unless you are using a single action trigger like 1911 you don't need a safety. Even carrying a Beretta i wouldn't put the safety on. Finally got rid of all Beretta's. Steyrs are awesome.....welcome aboard....wear it train with it..:)
