I personally wouldn't carry it that way. I would say safe to carry as long as you have that trigger covered. I think this debate is like discussing "loaded chamber or not" or "IWB vs OWB".
If (and when) you do carry with the safety off, you will be the first to find out if it is safe or not. Maybe you can come back and let us know your findings.

I think if a gun has a safety, you should use it.. It is there for a reason.....I use the safety on my G2 and practice with it in my drills......
Its just being prudent!
With the trigger safety I think I'd feel safe carrying loaded round with safety off. I suppose it's all in how you train but I'd rather know it's ready to go if needed when the trigger is pulled.
P. 14 of your Taurus PT 111 G2 manual says:
"3. Leave the safety “on” until you are ready to shoot and the firearm is pointed at the target."
Carry your pistol anyway you please but, if you have a legal issue, the first question the lawyer will ask will be, "Did you follow the operating instructions in the manual?"
IMHO, a "trigger safety" is about as useless as the "safety between your ears."

Parabellum—Latin for "prepare for war," from the phrase, Si vis pacem, para bellum, meaning "If you want peace, prepare for war." Kind of Georg Luger's version of Colt "peacemaker." It is fatal to enter an war without the will to win it. Douglas MacArthur

I carry my G2 with it on and 1 in the pipe. With my XDS even though it has a trigger and grip safety, I am very cautious about holstering it - always with my thumb on the back of the sled to seat it in the holster

I don't carry my G2...So i guess i am out on this one
I carry mine with the safety on. For me the position of the safety is easy to disengage as it in in an almost perfect positioning for my thumb.
