Taurus PT 92 and IDPA

Being new to IDPA I thought I'd seek a bit of guidance. I couldn't find a clear answer in the IDPA rule book.

I have a Taurus PT 92 that does NOT have the hammer drop feature on the frame mounted safety. When you load a round and engage the safety, it is cocked and locked. In order to start with the hammer down, you would have to manually lower the hammer onto a live round using your thumb. For IDPA purposes, is starting a stage in the cocked and locked condition considered appropriate, even though it is a double-action pistol? And what classification would this gun be in, SSP or ESP?

Thanks

Mike

Taurus PT 92 would be an SSP, and yes you can start with the safety on; locked and cocked from the holster, similar to CDP 1911
