Default " Ignition switch"?

Some folks, I have seen, become upset at hearing the lock refered to as an "ignition switch".
How about you ?
Just curious, have seen it multiple times.

You must run in a strange crowd. I can't say I've ever heard it referred to in that way before. But then I have noticed that the younger crowd are speaking a totally different language than I grew up speaking. Most of the time I have no clue what they are talking about.

It was a younger person, but then, you and I, aren't they all younger???
Many collectors I know will be dissuaded from owning one with a lock, so much so, there is an accommodation and replacement available.

You can still buy some S&Ws without the lock. And Iíve never seen a lock on a Ruger revolver. My S&W 642 does have a lock but Iíve never used it. It does not bother me either way.

I have heard horror stories of the lock engaging itself, and see a very easy to follow video of how to remove it.`
I doubt the horror stories of the lock engaging itself.

The one on the top of the rossi lever actions does look just like an ignition switch on an old Oliver tractor. The ones on the S&Ws aren't as obnoxious but are still stupid and usually turn me away unless they are dirt cheap.
