    Should Taurus add decocking functionality the G2C and G3

    The G2C and G3 have restrike capability. This means they can fire double action. Right now, if these guns have round in the chamber, they've been cocked and have to stay that way. The only way to decock is to pull the trigger.

    Should Taurus add a manual decocking capability, most likely actuated by pushing the safety down past the firing position, allowing a controlled, non-firing release of the striker? This would do two things. It would allow the gun to be used DA/SA. It would also allow the gun to be safely decocked for field stripping. I would consider both of these to be strong positives.

    No. leave as is. Why complicate something that works?
    Don't want a round in a loaded pistol then go condition#2.

    They've got a manual safety on it already. It's good to go.

    YES, definitely. Have a safety like the TH9 that you can carry condition one if that's your bag or you can carry it DA. Give the owner the choice. Personally, I have a Kel Tec P11 that fills my pocket with 11 rounds of DA goodness or I can go with my TH9c hammer down DA the way I like it, OR I can go with one of my DA revolvers. Yes, five is enough when it's a .357 magnum. I never even considered a striker gun, prefer the hammer with decocker. I've never considered a G2, my choice.

    Yes.
    I have always thought that a decocker is the only thing needed to make the G2C the perfect carry pistol.

    DA on a striker gun increases the chance of a light strike on the primer of some rounds. S&B is one of those rounds my G2 G3 and SD9 will light strike occasionally and the SD aren't restrike. There was a way to do it on a G2 with lock but it's a dangerous route to perform it. Another way almost as questionable was a process of taking the gun apart and assembling it with round in. If you don't get it right you cock the pistol anyways and could possibly shoot yourself in a haste to try and take the gun apart and do it again. Not assuming you can't figure out how to clear it out before pulling the trigger for disassembly, after a few failed tries and being frustrated **** happens.

    Striker guns are pretty much half cocked and you have to pull the trigger to get the firing pin back to get it to release. TH9 would be the better option if you wan the de cock route or guns like my AVI that I carry daily.

    Why does a striker gun need a decocker, it's never fully cocked until you pull the trigger?

    1. Striker fired guns are cocked and unlocked.
    2. Striker fired with trigger safeties are unsafe.
    3. guns with hammers pose an extreme level of safety. One can see if it is cocked. A manual safety endures it is safe.
    4. in a striker fired gun, it is cocked and locked until someone puts their finger on the trigger.
    5. Striker fired guns are the least safe guns to have around.

    Just MHO.
