If they were armed, the plot wouldn't have worked. If they were being chased, the last thing the would have done was left their weapons behind or accidentally dropped them. The weapons wold have been their lifeline and they would make sure they had them. Granted, it didn't make sense but it worked better than have them losing the weapons early on.

So for TPTB, it was probably a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils?

I think their lack of firearms can be explained by their assumption of safety. It makes more sense than having guns that get lost or taken at the beginning.

IMO, yes. Teyla said that they were in danger of that tribe finding the Athosian weapon cache and using them in the hunt so by not giving Teyla and Keller weapons to begin with, it gave them the ability to survive.

You mean it added an element to the story in the form of searching for the weapon caches?

In a way. My point was that if Teyla and Keller had been given weapons, there would be no point to the episode. They could have taken out the few tribespeople guarding the Stargate and returned to Atlantis then returned to search with reinforcements and a Jumper to scan the planet for lifesigns.
