    Right and I don't want to carry the PT145 (which has the same trigger action as the PT111 G2) with the safety OFF. On the other hand, the SR9, SR40, SR9c, SR40c are similar to the Glock trigger action so I carried them with safety OFF. The Taurus 24/7 G2 pistols I have are DA/SA so I also carried them with safety OFF. Like others said above, I do not want to carry an SA gun with 1 in the chamber and safety OFF.

    Sounds like I'm with the majority here. With a single action trigger pull I'm keeping that safety flicked ON. Just make sure to train flicking it off when drawing.

    The safety should be used, and it's disengagement at speed a regular part of your shooting manual of arms.

    Studies have shown propriatary manual safeties save lives during weapon retention scenarios.

    Carry mine with safety on. Is now habit to release safety while drawing. I don't even realize I think about it just natural. I think it's better with the safety on as others have statef

    I wish my G2 didn't have a safety but since it does I use it. I want flicking the safety off to be part of my routine. I don't want it to be accidently on when I need it to be off.

    Good call. Here's the problem with many folks. 1. They think a gun is a gun; they are not, semi-autos require much more dedication and range time for one to be familiar with their manual of arms. 2. They are lazy; they don't want to spend the time and money with range time to learn how to properly operate the gun. 3. They want to pick up the "gun" when ever danger appears and be able to instantly use it without thinking. To these folks I say, buy a revolver. They are the closest thing to "fool proof" one can find in personal defense.... Pick up revolver, point shoot. No worries about magazines loaded or properly seated. No worries about safeties being on or off. No worries about JHP's jamming on feed ramps ad-nau-si-em.

    That's all fine and dandy if your right handed. When your left handed it a little more difficult to disengage the safety. Does that mean its not safe to carry with the safety engaged? I feel I've carried and shot mine enough. I feel I know it well enough to be comfortable without the safety on. That said, I certain situations I do in fact engage the safety. But generally while out among the masses its not engaged.

    How did this ever become a point of debate?

    My suggestion would be to ask anyone who has shot themselves.

    If a lefty finds it too hard to use a righty gun then stick to the few models that are lefty.

    I really do use my safety. was trying raise the point about us left handed gun owners. Actually the safety on pt-111 g2 is easy on and easy off. I spent hours with and empty pistol perfecting using it with my left hand.

    You might need to consider the 24/7 G2C pistols also. They have ambi safeties and ambi slide locks.
