I shoot a Krieghoff (Lah-tee-daa). So, all I have to do is,with the barrel removed and the opening lever in the closed position, place the outer palm of my off-hand over the cocking ears and pull the trigger twice, thus gently releasing the cocked rods.

My Krieghoff has been cocked for 47 years now. No problems, no broken springs, no misfires. My wife's Krieghoff has been cocked for 41 years, no problems.

No, my K-80 has remained cocked between shoots for the last 14 years.

I do, on non-detachable triggers.

With detachable triggers, I just remove the trigger group and slowly release the hammers with my finger, that way I can feel the springs and flip the inertial block to check if anything needs attention.

NO!!! But I do place a coin over the firing pin hole before I pull the trigger, just to give the firing pin something to hit as it were. I do this with the barrels off. It may not be the best idea to leave snap caps in the barrel for long term storage!!! break em all. Jeff

I can always re-install the barrel and forearm, If I need to place in safe for long term storage.
