    Granted the best safety system rests between your ears, it relies largely on um uh oh common sense.
    redpill makes a very good point on the mechanical difference (benefit) of the Block, the ‘DA’ adds another level of safety vs. inertia trigger tab safety of the VP9/PPQ et-al.
    As for the Mil thumb safety doctrine, they still have AD’s with AR’s (and pistols are easier to point).

    What method do you use to release magazine on vp9. It has some kind of push buttons attached to trigger guard to release the magazine. Very unusual way.

    Those are called paddles. Typically, there are three methods. Strong side thumb, strong side index finger, or strong side middle finger.

    It is important to be cognizant if using your trigger finger that you are pressing down on the paddle and not back on the trigger inadvertently.

    I have been carrying firearms for about 24 years, both privately and professionally. About a month ago I bought my most recent HK, and guess what—I read the manual. So, I'm not sure why you are scoffing at this excellent advice, especially since the manual directly answers several of your questions.

    Some people just want stuff done for them....now if RTFM, and have questions that need clarification or aren't addressed, that's a different scenario.

    Reading through the owner’s manual was always something I looked forward to, whether it was for an automobile, firearm or whatever. Skipping this important step is like building a home on a faulty foundation. Start at square one, don’t rush the process as guns can be very dangerous if not handled properly.

    The slide cycling presets the striker. If the slide doesn't cycle the gun won't fire. You can't pull the trigger on a Glock and then pull it again, which is a requirement for double-action. So, no double-action.

    Restrike capability is not the definition of double action. Double action means just that, that the trigger does two actions, namely, cocking the firing mechanism, and then releasing it.

    A Glock (and many other striker fired guns) has the trigger cocking the striker the rest of the way, and releasing it. The ATF considers it to be a double action gun, even if it doesn't have the restrike capability of my USP.
