The decocking lever, out of the box, was very hard to operate (that's why Gun Tests mag gave it a "Don't Buy" rating - otherwise they liked the gun). I tried lubing it. If it helped I couldn't tell it. So I just tried rotating it back and forth 50 times. Helped a bit. In terms of everyday carry I'm leery, should an emergency arise wherein I have to draw and, God forbid, fire, I don't want to have to fiddle with the decocker. My question is this: Should I just leave it off and the hammer down in a Wright Leather Works Predator holster OWB that covers the trigger? I've been doing some internet reading and some people say it's safe (a la Glock) while others have concerns. So I thought I'd ask Bersa owners, some of whom carry daily.
