    My DA/SA S&W 4566 has a decocker only; my DA/SA S&W 6906 has a slide mounted decocker/safety; and my DA/SA CZ-82 has an external safety. All have a distinctly firm DA trigger. I carry safety off, hammer down. I feel much more at ease with them chambered than with my Glock's "Safe Action."

    XD SC 9MM = no safety, chambered
    SA 1911 = safety on, chambered
    Bodyguard .380 = safety off, chambered

    Did I pass the test?

    It depends on how you carry it. If your carrying it SA, with the hammer cocked you want the safety on. If your carrying in the DA mode, hammer down, no need to engage the safety.

    Makes me glad that I carry a revolver with no safety. Outside of the long DA trigger pull. The more I practice and use my S&W 327 TRR8 the more I like it. Having one less "feature" for an overzealous DA to obsess over makes my life simpler.

    S&W 638- revolver
    Sig P226- no safety
    Beretta 92- safety off- it is the one I carry the least and do not want any confusion or failure to go bang

    I carry a Beretta 92FS also DA/SA. I CCW it with the safety off, for me the DA, like a revolver, is the safety and Beretta has a long trigger pull on that DA shot.

    However you're comfortable... just train that way.

    Nobody, and I mean nobody here can tell you what's best for you.

    Whatever it is you carry, learn it well. Keep the safety on or engaged while doing so. Me and Glock? The primary safety is me......I like that! Keep it simple. We only make things more complicated when we want to or are misinformed.

    I have a P-85. If I were using it for carry, I would just keep it decocked and use the DA for the first shot.

    I always learned to turn the safety off as the gun is raised, after the draw. Works well, is fast, and prevents one from shooting themselves accidentally in the leg.
