Trying to see if most carry with safety on or off? Any suggestions?
-It is a seriously scary thought that there are subsets of American society that think being intellectual is a BAD thing...
I carry mine with the safety off.
"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem."
Ronald Reagan, President of the United States; 1985
Type G PX4's like mine have no safety - the decocker returns to fire position by itself. Safest guns to carry with one in the chamber. 1911 cocked and locked? Not in my holster.
"I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you ---- with me, I'll kill you all."
Marine Corps General James Mattis, to Iraqi tribal leaders
I love mine, type F but the safety is awkward to release on draw so mine is safety off during carry.
Great gun!... when I carry it I basically do 1 in chamber, de-cocked and safety off... like others mentioned...
Have done it both ways. I use the decocker to drop the hammer, then flip the safety back off once it's in the holster. I would NOT carry it cocked and the safety off.

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
I carry a 9000s Type F - essentially the same gun as the PX4 Compact.
I keep the safety on - for safe handling from nightstand to desk to holster to lock box in the car - most of the time.
However, at night outside in darkened situations, when the closing distance and time are shorter, I take the safety off, but still have the hammer decocked.
I would not take the safety off in daylight, unless I felt a heightening sense of threat.
