Why does the P99 QA have a de-cocker?

The de-cocker allows safe de-cocking of the pistol before disassembling, cleaning or safe storage without pulling the trigger. The size and shape of the de-cocking button integrating into the slide prevent the unintentional de-cocking of the pistol. For de-cocking, a ball pen or a handcuff key is ideal.
