That is my question regarding the P35 aka Browning Hi Power. The safety, when cocked and "locked" is not as sternly locked as the ones on my Sig P238 or Sig 1911 and Colt Combat Commander . These guns I have carried for year clocked and locked, and would not consider doing anything else.
Just last week when I removed my Browning Hi Power from the holster, I noted the safety was off.. Thus I had been carrying the Browning clocked and unlocked. Keep in mind the holster has the trigger protected, and mine is a MK 3 requiring the trigger pulled or it won't go past half cocked.... But still I am concerned now about keeping the Browning clocked and locked.
As show in the picture for now I am carrying half cocked.
