I would like to point out that this is also how we train in the Coast Guard. When carrying the Beretta M9, it had a round chambered, safety off, and holstered. With the new Sig Sauer P229's that we have, those also have a round chambered and the gun is holstered. No safety on the 229.
I assume then that the CG carried the M9 with the hammer down? First shot DA?
