EB Kobra Carry, WC Protector, Colt Combat Elite, T Series BHP, and a Walther PPK to name a few faves
Not knockin it...just don't understand the point of it? So...
what's the point?

First off... SFS in no way turns the hammer "basically into a decocker". Pressing the cocked hammer forward activates the safety. The pistol remains cocked and locked, just like always, except the hammer is in a forward position. Swiping the safety lever down,xactly likoriginal system, releases the hammer which immediately returns to the fire position. My oldest SFS (factory installed!) BHP has never failed in over 20 years of use. It did once stump a Chicago Police RO/Armorer during a public range day. Huge smile when I moved the safety lever down and the hammer popped up!Some BHPs have weak safeties - the detent is sloppy
Today, we have much better holsters and all the modern safeties I've seen (on my two BHPs, and on 1911s) are positive, firm, with a significant detent. I can't imagine a scenario where I could accidentally disengage the safety carrying concealed.
For those who prefer DA/SA setups, turning the hammer basically into a decocker is really clever, as @jtq wrote. Too each their own. I have no need for it on any of my pistols.
That is a clever and often used old quip!Seems like a solution in search of a problem to me. But to each his own! 🤣
If you are going to quote me at least mention my name. LOLSeems like a solution in search of a problem to me. But to each his own! 🤣
I guess my thought is always that a crisp and predicable break can be accomplished with C&S parts or a trigger job on factory parts. No need to change the manual of arms to achieve that.I have owned 2 Hi Powers with SFS. Both installed by BHSS. The system is solid and it does provide a reasonable trigger pull/feel. Break is crisp and predictable without having to do an action job. I did it more as a curiosity verses any concerns about carrying condition 1.
SFS is not for me but I totally understand why some of the fellas like it. For me it, it is like the Mustang SVO from the 80s. Interesting concept. Well engineered. But not interesting enough to overcome a desire for Shelby GT power and retro style.
