Be aware that removing or deactivating a safety device can land you in a world of hurt if the gun is used in a defensive situation. Why? Because in a civil case, you could be portrayed as a careless, reckless individual.
Messing with a safety device might not be a problem in a (relatively) black-and-white criminal case, but civil cases are much more "gray". The chance of being sued for "pain and suffering", negligence is very high. Is the risk worth it?
