in my defense you did ask me for my resources and I responded in kind. I normally do not get this excited over solicited information. the united states military bases a lot of their small arms training off of jeff coopers work and teach the 4 basic rules of firearms safety as well as an "updated" readiness condition system that allows for more than single action revolvers and 1911s. generally speaking the phrase "safety enabled" replaces the term "hammer down".
by Jeff Cooper's criteria when he laid out the 5 conditions the only step necessary to move from condition 1 to condition 0(IE firing the weapon) is to disengage the safety and the beretta PX4 accomplishes just that, regardless of whether it has been cocked or not.
