Not sure what I did or what is wrong, but I am unable to get the safety to engage with the hammer down, slide forward. If I pull the slide back, or pull the hammer all the way down, the safet will engage. I have shot this pistol once, cleaned it twice. When I purchased, the safety was working before I cleaned it for the second time (after I shot it).

If anyone has any ideas on what I need to do to fix this, I would appreciate it!

What is accomplished by putting the safety on with the hammer DOWN?

As long as the safety engages freely with the hammer COCKED, that's what counts.

I assume that it would be safer around kids with an empty chamber and safety on, one more layer of difficulty for a little one to get past as the slide can't be cycled with the safety on. Of course it's not the answer to the problem, the answer is to make sure the little ones can't get the gun at all while the owner can, instantly. I doubt that many kids under 8 could cycle a firestar, my wife can't cycle the slide on my PPK/S.
