    Is it safe to carry the PT11 G2 with manual safety off?

    I carry my G2 with the manual safety on. I have learned to release the manual safety with my thumb as I remove it from the holster. I like the added safety.

    My PT145 G1 has the same safety system as your PT111 G2. I carried it with 1 in the chamber and safety ON because the 1st shot is in SA. I carried the 24/7 G2 .45 sometimes with 1 in the chamber and the manual safety OFF because the first shot by default is in DA.

    I do not consider carrying a SA gun with the safety off, safe.

    How would you compare this gun with the manual safety in the fire position with a Glock, for example, that does not have a manual safety?

    A Glock is a Double Action therefore requiring a longer more determine trigger pull. A Single Action requires less pull thus the safety. Practice with the safety on IMO.
    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets
    Reduce them to shreds
    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.

    Yep, what he said ^^^^

    That's the reason I carried the PT145 with safety ON and 24/7 G2 .45 with safety OFF as I said in post #4.

    I probably need to learn more about those differences. I thought that the Glock action was more similar to the PT111 G2 than it really is. Did some reading and realized that the Glock is half-cocked when you rack the slide. So the PT111 G2 is fully cocked when you rack the slide?
