They all ride in a holster which has the trigger covered so that nothing could accidentally discharge them.
My duty weapon is a Glock, no external safety. Jacket weather is a Sig Sauer P245 no external safety. Short weather is a S&W 642 no external safety.

I do have a Ruger LC9 that is getting used more with a thumb safety and a 1911 with a thumb safety. Though I don't carry them as much as the above three. Good holsters, proper handling and follow the rules of gun safety and all is well.

That is what I see is like caring a gun condition 1 with out a trigger cover or heavy trigger.Some older 1911 people disabled their palm safety for carry.

Oh you mean like without a holster? No that has never seemed practical to me.

Belt clips are great I just can't get passed condition 2 with it. I know many who have. I go places where it is either a paddle holster or clip for law requirement.

I also carry in condition 2. The reason may seem wrong, however, I never seem to be in a position to need to be in condition 1.

At home, my .45 MAG is always in condition 1

I carry one in the pipe. 2 reasons, 1 I'm ready to go and by god, if I'm in a situation that warrants bringing it out, then I'm pulling the trigger. Not much of a threatening type at all as to where, if you don't stop... I'm going to shoot you. So if it comes out it ready to go NOW !!! and 2, gives me that added 1 round of capacity. I have faith in my Glock it's not to fire unless I pull the trigger and want it to.

But this does make sense if carrying in a waist band. Certainly wouldn't want to blow your dick off, and if it snags and you're pushing and pulling on it to get it freed from your waist band there is the slight possibility of unintended fire.
