I picked up a little .22LR pistol cheap the other day. I broke it down, cleaned it up and it looks pretty good. Haven't shot it yet. I am not familiar with this manufacture. Made in France "D'Armes Des Pyrenees" or something like that. On the slide it appears the second notch for the safety should look like the first. This would prevent the hammer striking the pin if there was a round in the chamber and the hammer was down if the gun was dropped. I don't think I would trust keeping this gun around chambered with cocked or not. I guess having it in "condition 1" round chambered, hammer cocked and safety on would be okay.... but... So should I just be careful and use it on the range for plinking, find a new slide, or pass it along??? If anyone knows where I could find more info on this gun please let me know.
With the safety off:
