If you can't get the plugs for free from S&W they are cheap in their online store.

Don't have to be old to make this mistake. For a long time, I carried a 1911. While I love my 1911, I decided a while ago that I need more rounds, so I switched to a Glock 19. "Safety" to "No-Safety" is an easy change (worst case, I flick off a non-existent safety.) Going the other direction could create a problem, though, if that muscle memory isn't re-learned.



Yeah, I was weaned on my grandfather's 1911 from Korea era. I now have Glocks and find myself using my thumb to flip a non-existent safety.
I know it is not there, but old habits in old (not too ugly) people.

None of my handguns have safety's for that very reason. No possible confusion.

I also have had to face the age problem, and as an old guy i favor a firearm that has no safety such as a Glock. That way i have one in the chamber and it is ready to go. Not much difference from the old S&W revolver that i loved so much. Now i also do recommend that old ammo be shot at the range and new ammo used to replace old ammo often. In the past i have had various guns from 22's to 38's to 9mm's fail to fire because of old ammo. No reason not to refresh from time ti time in a carry gun.

Know manual of arms and operate them fully. Short change any part of it, and this can/will happen to you.
