The best thing Taurus ever put their name on, was a Beretta design. If a slide mounted, hammer drop safety is enough to confuse a person, maybe the gun isn't the problem.
I didn't see anybody here indicating confusion over the improperly designed Beretta decock/safety. Just that it is ergonimically a mess, requiring either two hands to operate, or shifting the strong hand to manipulate. I strongly suspect if it was Taurus instead of Beretta that made that mistake, the caterwalling could be heard from outer space over what dummies the designers at Taurus must be.
