I have a 3rd generation HS2000 which I purchased several years ago. I havent shot it in quite some time until today. The firing pin indicator was in the out position when a round was chambered and also when the chamber was empty or even the magazine disengaged. I think I vaguely remember that the pin would only stick out when a round was chambered and would be flush when the chamber is empty. Am I correct on this? Is there something wrong with my pistol?

Firing pin indicator means the firing pin is in the rearward position, and is locked against the sear. The loaded chamber indicator (on the top behind the breech block) is what tells you if a round is in the chamber. Now if the weapon is unloaded and no magazine in it, and you dry fire it, the firing pin indicator should go away. If you're talking about the loaded chamber indicator, it is flush with the top of the slide when no round is in the chamber, and sticks up when a round is "in the pipe".
