I've read where an automatic safety is nice in that it actually gives a gun owner the option to have their gun be automatic or not since the safety switch's automatic action can be disconnected or left as designed. Out of curiosity, have you seen automatic safeties changed much? Is such an adjustment considered heresy on a nice English gun?

I do not like them at all. I do not like to depend on them, for my safety, to function properly. I can put them on if needed. Plus in rapid field shooting they do slow me down. No safety on a gun used for clay's will last forever. I can see a heavy clay's gun being shot 10,000 times a year. I have shot some more than that much. To me they are an unnecessary wear point. As to removing them that is a personal thing. If you do so in a way that can be reversed then to me there is no reason not to do so if you want.

I think they are great on a hunting gun, but the worst thing ever on a competition gun.

I've shot so many rounds of skeet with my Fox-Sterlingworth Skeet & Upland Game Gun that I never even notice. I can switch to a Superposed or Model 21 Skeet Gun and likewise never notice. I much prefer the automatic safety for hunting.

My Father bitched all the time about the manual safety on the 20-gauge Winchester Model 101 I brought him from Japan in 1972, but he carried it enough to wear much of the bluing off it in the last 17 years he hunted. When he once in a while missed a bird with it, we would here "I'd ah got that with my old Remington!!" Old Remington being an 1896 vintage AE-Grade Hammerless Double.
