    "A well-educated electorate, being necessary to the continuance of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed."
    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    XD-40SC carried with one in the pipe. Has bot trigger and grip safety. Never had a problem with it firing when it shouldn't and no problem with it not firing when I pull the trigger.

    +1 on that.
    Used to carry a Taurus PT-92. I would put a round in the chamber, then decock it so first round is DA, the rest are SA. It had a safety, but I didn't use it. My brain and my finger act as my safety.

    Now I carry a Glock, where it is a non-issue.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    this doesnt make good sense. if there is no manual safety how would you carry it with a safety?

    If I'm carrying one of mine that has a safety it's on. I train as much as I can with the guns I carry to stay up. My Glock don't have one my PT111 does, ect.

    I carry glock. Don't have a saftey to worry about.

    Let me rephrase.

    Don't have an external saftey to worry about.

    Tip: it's an ambi safety. If you decide to get Crimson Trace laser grip, you can have the right side safety removed pretty easily.
    Fortune favors the bold.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    I don't carry yet, but am in the process of getting my permit. I think initially I may carry israeli style (unloaded chamber) till I get more comfortable with carrying with one in the pipe.(So I don't accidentally pull a DEA Agent) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmRN00KbCr8

    3 safetys are always engaged on my XD.
    1- trigger safety
    2- grip safety
    3- the one between my ears.

    I'm left handed so the safety on the right side to needed. Plus I don't use lasers on my carry guns so its not a problem.

    My revolvers don't have an external safety, my 1911 does.
    The most important safety I always use, is the one between both ears

    How about this we use all safeties at our disposal. The best of course as you all said is twixt our ears. Whatever gun you choose to carry has some kind of safety mechanism, learn it. Now we go back to the thing between the ears.
