I do remember reading of some cases where an LEO was holding a perp at gunpoint while another LEO cuffed him and then the perp was shot when the LEO dropped the hammer with the decocker (while still pointing it at the perp).
There was one here (Lexington, KY) where the officer did not use the decocker but tried to lower the hammer by pulling the trigger and using his thumb to control the hammer fall. He didn't. A dead suspect, racial unrest, and a cop's retirement all followed.
Jim's Rules of Carry: 1. Any gun is better than no gun. 2. A gun that is reliable is better than a gun that is not. 3. A hole in the right place is better than a hole in the wrong place. 4. A bigger hole is a better hole.

no guns = might makes right
