jbee,I have yet to see a revolver with a manual safety, unless there is some new model out that I haven't seen. I think in a bad situation a safety would be more likely to slow ya down. I don't like auto's with safeties either, that's why my current carry gun is a glock. Basically point and shoot. No time wasted fumbling with safeties and all in a situation where a second or two could mean your life. I agree on the size, that is why I like it. Small, light weight, and can fit in your pocket. Thanks for the comment.I did not buy one because it does not have a manual safety. Other then that, it is a nice size for a concealed weapon and fits into a cargo pants pocket fine with a holster.
