vzontini said:The new rulebook specifically states:Based on Item E above I would not risk it. I personally wanted and got a gun with the mag safety warning on the slide so the IDPA rule nazi's wouldn't have any questions.
It is too simple to buy a gun without the safety from the factory.
I'm not defending the IDPA rules in any way. I'm just stating my opinion on the best way to go if the gun is for IDPA use. In practice I would hope that it wouldn't be an issue. But the realist in me has seen way to many "rules of the day" turn what could have been a fun event into a huge mess.
Bryan W said:I normally don't waste much time with rules - If I want to play the game, I'll play by the rules - no worries there....but I bought my M&P and it had the mag safety already removed...plus a trigger job... I'm not putting one back in to shoot a match - that's just a personal decision. I'm not sure it's a deal breaker for me not to ever try IDPA....maybe I'll shoot the M&P 45 in CDP when it hits the market next year....
i-SHOT said:Guys, for the most part of it, I don't think anyone is going to make a fuss about the removed mag safety. We have a couple of shooters in our club running M&Ps and no one ever inquired about anything.
