    What condition do you carry your Beretta 92fs?

    Just as the title says. Do you carry it with the safety on or since the first shot is a long and heavy DA pull, do you leave the safety of after decocking it, perhaps in the half cock position? I used to carry a CZ with the safety off in the half cock position so I don't have to worry about the safety in a draw situation. Chime in folks.

    Safety off after de-cocking. The 92FS you just bought is as safe as a revolver carried that way.

    That is what I figured. Just like a Sig Sauer.

    When I carried mine, it was hammer down, safety off (red). The long DA trigger pull is the safety.

    While carrying, I keep it safety off hammer down. During bedside duty it stays half cocked.

    Round in the chamber, hammer down, safety OFF. First round is just like a good revolver. Seems like a lot of good gun people are saying the same thing. The 92 is a very fine gun.

    Chamber loaded, decocked of course, safety off.

    When I was deployed and carried an M9: hammer down, loaded/in chamber, safety off and in a holster. Most of the time, I had an M4 in my hand.
