You can also purchase a SA/DA pistol which you could carry in DA mode ( thumb safety would be optional). Trigger pull for DA mode increases dramatically ( mine goes from 4 to 11 lbs). I believe this is how the LA Police Dept. use to carry their Beretta 92s.
This is my preferred method of carrying. Also setting one's thumb on the hammer is reassuring while holstering.
My EDC is a Beretta Storm SubCompact. I occasionally carry a Ruger P95 and a Berretta P92, They are a bit heavy for me to EDC but they work the same way. There aren't many options these days for a traditional DA/SA although CZ has some nice options.
Mine as well. I've had several DA/SA pistols over the years, and I prefer it to the SA semi-autos, or DAO semi-autos. My most recent acquisition is an EEA Sarsilmaz B6c(basically a CZ75c clone) and I love it. Got it on sale for $232.00 + tax. https://grabagun.com/sar-b6c-cmp-9mm-3-8-13rd-blk.html


So basically the solution to my gun problem is to acquire another gun :fire
Basically, that is the solution to any problem.
:lol: :iagree:
As I posted earlier, my etc has a safety... I only use it to holster or unholster as needed... I think my Ruger only weighs like 17oz empty... One of the lightest 9mm's out there...
This also sounds like a legitimate approach. Theres a lot of things to consider and I sure appreciate all the input you all give us!

I dont know if I ever muster the courage to carry chambered tbh. Right now I carry off body because of work attire constraints (tucked in business casual). Definitely need a lot of practice.
If a gun is in its holster, there is so little chance of a discharge that it should pose no concern at all. The only concerns are the acts of holstering or drawing the firearm from the holster, and these can be mitigated by training, attention, process (whether you put the holster on and then the gun in the holster, or whether you holster the gun first then put the combination on) and, as some have suggested, mechanical safeties. I prefer no extra mechanical safety on the defensive firearm myself, but I understand why others have a different preference.

Carrying while in business casual attire is fairly easy -- as long as your shirts are not too fitted around the waist and your pants leave room for the gun/holster around the waist. Several companies make tuckable holsters to fit this need -- CompTac has a few, Crossbreed SuperTuck, Galco King Tuk, etc...


Training and practice are always a good idea for everyone.
Thanks for the advice. I can see how a holstered gun should not be a source of worry at all, especially if it's not chambered. But still it takes some getting used to... I got a LightTuck holster from Vedder and been trying to figure out the best position to carry with it.
