as others said...glad no one was hurt.

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.

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.
