Yeah, I understand. However, I dont think that one should apply the safety under those conditions. In fact, it should be common knowledge to not even have your finger on the trigger unless you have full intentions of shooting whatever your weapon is pointed at. Im sure the manual does state this.
I do appreciate your find though. It is important, and maybe taurus, and other weapons manufactures, should cover this basis to cover things better. In any case... good to know.
