It has more safety margin than a Glock, because of the long takeup
I don't really consider that a safety feature, but to each his own.

the hammer you can physically block with your thumb
That I really do like.

But it has a very similar trigger pull and reset.
Reset to me is noticeably longer than most striker fired pistols, but not prohibitively so.

I hate that long light takeup. Idk why but I really do. I would much rather have a DA first pull where the pull has resistance the whole way. I find I can use that resistance to steady my shot. To me a LEM trigger just has a lot of slack.

But to Scotch's credit there are a LOT of people over on HKpro that love the LEM. My advice though is to really try it first. It honestly is a love it or leave it thing. Can't rely on anyone's opinion, including mine.
Know the status of your weapon
Keep your muzzle oriented so that no one will be hurt if the firearm discharges
Keep your finger off the trigger until you have an adequate sight picture
Maintain situational awareness
