Spade Cooley said:I have a new M & P full size and do not understand Mag Safety. I'm not sure if my pistol has one or not. I'm still reading in the manual. Could someone explain it to this novice? Do they make two different models, on with and one without?
Does this mean that if the mag is not in the pistol, it will not fire?
Yep, that is what it means. With the magazine removed, even with a round in the chamber, the pistol is not supposed to fire. Of course, it is a mechanical device and could fail to function correctly, but assuming no mechanical failure, the pistol won't fire without the magazine.
