You don't have to use the safety just because it's there.How are you using the safety with your thumb?
I think the reason I'm having the issue to begin with is because this is the first is tool I've owned with a safety. I'm a Sig person but couldn't afford one at the moment but wanted a .40.
I've owned more Ruger's and Glock's than Tauri in my many years of shooting but I'm not a Ruger/Glock guy. I love the Tauri because they're good bang for my buck.
