    My question as well, a quick (chamber dry/empty) test if the decocker drops the hammer to half-cock or fully strikes the FP.

    Thanks Poydras for the heads up.

    That doesn't happen. In fact, there is a school of thought to hold a thumb against back of the slide for contact shots to prevent bumping the slide out. I don't subscribe to that but I've seen the demonstrations like this one below before. The video actually shows it done with a 10mm.

    Here are a couple pictures of difference between P30 with hammer all the way down (first picture) and decocked (second picture). You will see when decocked the hammer is little further back if you want to check your P30. If you want to check you might as well do multiple tries, maybe 10 or so.

My only other remotely possible option is through one side wall and into a small wooded area, hoping it would embed in a tree before making it through to the apartments on the other side.
    I lived in an apartment for three years. At that time I bought my first handgun which was a Springfield XDS. They had the recall which from my understand had the potential to discharge a round when the slide was sent forward. It freaked me out. It certainly had me reevaluating my living situation and chambering a live round in an apartment. I wouldn't get too worried yet.

    I suppose one could make a snap cap with a primer and no projectile to test without going to the range

    Subscribed. It's indeed scary. I've always trusted decockers (but always point to safe direction). The decocker button along with sounds it surprised me when I first handled HKs.

    If I lived in an apartment building and had a need to decock a loaded pistol I would get a five gallon bucket of sand or something and that goes for any pistol.

    It depends on the decocker, but you can always ease the hammer down while using it.

    The occasional function check with a pencil doesn't hurt, either.
