    I’m torn. Should I get the manual safety or not?

    • PNWTO says:

      No reason for the safety unless your organization or agency requires it.

      • SpankDaddyCool says:

        What about concealed carry with one in the chamber and belt clips, inside a purse, or any other method w/o holster? This could open up a lot of options and you can always disengage the safety.

    • Amer-Rican says:

      No manual safeties for me. I always carry in a quality kydex holster with full triggerguard coverage. Condition zero.

      • Amer-Rican says:

        If you do get a pistol with manual safety, you really should train a minimum of 2-3 days a week, drawing from holster, engaging/disengaging that MS every time, so it’s second nature. Many LE agencies moved away from pistols with MS because under the stress of an OIS, it wasn’t unheard of for them to forget to disengage the MS.

      I must be one of the few out there who actually likes a manual safety. This description might help:

      “Mounted far at the rear of the pistol, sweeping the safety down with your strong hand thumb is easy and fairly intuitive. It snicks off nicely with a clean, appropriate-strength detent.Putting it back on, however, takes concerted, specific effort. Which is exactly how it should be. You’ll need to use your support hand to click up the front of the safety lever. It seems like, when down, it has a stronger, tighter detent. It isn’t going to click up on accident.” – From the Truth About Guns website.

        I have had to carry deep concealment, which is below the belt line with a shirt tucked in. Having a non holstered Glock with a round in the chamber floating around in a jock strap pointed at your junk makes one appreciate a safety. After the disaster that was the M9, I care not to ever carry a holstered pistol with a safety though.

        I keep a pistol attached to a magnet under my steering wheel, put it in my pants and head inside wherever Im going. Im carry, and I don’t have to worry about my car being broken into and pistol stolen. Lots of reasons a safety can be handy.

  2. Pat Riley says:

    I agree i think all pistols with sub 5lb triggers should have one it would stop many idiots from shooting thereself in the leg trying to re holster

    • Adun says:

      You know what else would stop that? Using a good holster, holstering slowly, looking at the holster while holstering and making sure it is clear of obstructions. This is a hardware solution for a software problem which only seeks to meet the requirements of LEO and MIL users who may require a manual safety.

    • SamHill says:

      Perfect nanny state mentality, Pat Riley. Lets get some legislation worked up immediately.

  3. EODMadBomb says:

    Keep your finger off the trigger unless you are firing…no safety necessary!

  4. Ed says:

    There’s nothing wrong with a manual safety. There’s 90 degrees of motion between a draw and squeeze of the trigger. During that time, the thumb has ample time to sweep the safety down. While I’ve carried a Sig 229, and personally a Kahr PM9 and CZ-PO1 that don’t have any safeties, I like that the XDS has the trigger and grip safety.

    A 124 grain HP moving at 1,200 fps gives no quarter to the target whether shot by someone else or yourself.
