    I have multiple holsters that do not require me to unholster the weapon to take it off. A paddle holster would be excellent for you. This way you don't have to remove the gun from the holster, thereby keeping the trigger covered at all times which will all but eliminate the chances of an AD. Another good holster design is the desantis soft tuck, the galco summer comfort, or the galco paddle lite.

A friend LEO told me once when I questioned him about how he felt from a safety standpoint with a round in the chamber and no external safety raised his index finger and said " this is the only safety I need or want" that might make the difference weather I go home tonight or not.
    This is my feeling exactly. I even removed the thumb safety off of my M&P9c. My feeling is, if the poo hits the fan, I may or may not remember to disengage it, but I promise I will remember to pull the trigger. If I do my part, the gun isn't going to AD

    Funny thing about this. Seems like many on the Beretta forums end up modifying the "F" model Storms to be "G" (decocker only) models eventually anyway. Both mine and my wife carry an F with the safety still in tact, but with the first DA trigger pull being as long and strong as it is on that gun, I am seriously thinking of modding mine to a "G" too since it is easily done. I always keep one in the chamber.

    Leaving the safety in tact and leaving it "off" seems more risky to me. You could end up with it bumped into "safe" when you least expect it and most need the weapon to fire. Seems if you are going to carry it off safe anyway, just convert it to a G so you don't have that issue to deal with.

    Tell you how you get-over-it,draw in a SD situation and get a "click" because you forgot to rack the slide,that'll change your mind,if you live through it.

    Do you, or anyone you know go hunting???


    If so, do you wait till you see game, and then load the weapon???

    It's been a while since I was on this thread, but I still wanted to say thanks for the heads up on the info about paddle holsters. I'm really looking into them, now.

    I bought an Infidel Kydex IWB holster from Comp-Tac and there are two reasons why I love it. First, my firearm securely clicks into place when placed in the holster (adjustable tension), and second, it can easily be removed without taking out the firearm. My walther never leaves its holster unless it is at the range, or if someday has to be drawn in an SD situation.

    The Galco Paddle Lite is a personal favorite because it is one of the few paddle holsters that has a very high ride helping it conceal better. That has always been my gripe on paddle holsters, they don't always conceal (try to hide a Blackhawk Serpa and you'll see what I mean) but the Galcos seem to do a better job.

    Good luck and carry LOADED!
