I detest the fact that my gun has an unneeded lock on it. But after several thousand rounds I no longer "Worry" about it. I assume the key may still be in the box but I haven't even looked in a long time. My revolver goes to the range with me almost weekly. If it EVER fails because of the lock I will remove it. Until then I'm not gonna worry about it.
