Good thing it was only training/range usage.

Why not do both at the same time.

However, any thoughts on a semi-auto with no safety? Doesn't every single semi have a safety - from 1911s to every S&W, Sig, etc.?
You're referring to my thread. I'm the guy who replaced the safety with the Beretta decocker only kit.

There are quite a few DA/SA guns that don't have a true safety. The Sig P226 comes to mind. The long, heavier DA pull is in essence the safety. I'm completely comfortable with that, especially after going to a firearms safety course and repeatedly putting the gun's safety on accidentally when doing the malfunction drills. I did start getting used to it and remembering to flip the safety off after cleaning the malfunction and going in for a shot, but even after that I'd still end up putting the safety on once in a while. IF that was a moment where my life depended on it, I'd probably be dead.

At home my Beretta is kept in a bolted down, locked Fort Knox pistol box, I don't have kids or anyone around that could get to the firearm nd that's basically there for theft prevention.

I guess the answer is it's a question each person has to address individually and decide what they're comfortable with. Neither is a right or wrong answer. FWIW, everyone I know that's carried a Beretta 92FS either as an LEO or in the military would always carry the pistol with one in the chamber, decocked with the safety off.

Yeah sounds right :-) but that also seems common in non-combat arms units.

The only handguns that need safeties are SAO like the 1911. IMO of course.

Iím signal, I feel yah.

I will say that while I think the safety on the beretta is pointless and stupid, I actually do like the option of it on a USP. I have tons of issues with the USP and hate the feel of that trigger in both DA, SA, and the reset, but... I kind of like carrying one cocked and locked. Iíd otherwise never use the safety if it was decocked but...

All guns made in the last 20 or so years have internal and/or non-manual safeties. I.e: trigger safety or a grip safety. These are to make a gun drop safe.

A lot of guns don't have a manual safety, most Glocks are like this.
