Which ever way you decide to carry, be consistent, and train the way you will carry. Personally, I carry my 24/7 Pro C DS .40, condition 1 safety off. If you decide to carry with safety on, be sure to train with saftety on when you draw. If you carry decocked, train with the double action pull everytime for your first shot. Its ultimately your decision, based on what you are comfortable with. Be safe.
