I've been wondering for a while if there isn't a new trend starting. Glock of course has no manual safety, Smith&Wesson, Sig, Mossberg, and I suppose others are making models like this.Def Glock wannabee...no manual safety.

I guess you can always carry it safety off if it has one. Me, I'm too old school to find THAT and option. It goes against my early gun safety training which is sorta burned in to my brain, what I have left of a brain. I got a PT145 some time back and carry it safety on even though it slows my draw, is not right under my thumb like a good 1911. I've considered carrying it safety off, but I just can't make myself do it. I do prefer DA guns. I'm thinking again about getting a Springfield Armory XDe in .45. I'll give up some firepower. Not a big deal.I am glad to see another option hit the market. Better late than never. Mossberg took a heck of a leap moving forward with their idea.
I prefer my duty weapons to not have a manual safety. If a model happens to have or OBLY comes with a manual safety I will still purchase it.
