My question is just as the title says. I think it should be safe, considering i use a Nemesis holster. I am interested if it is possible for the gun to fire, if it is hit/jerked/bumped/jarred. It seems to me that carrying this loaded and ready to fire would be no different than carrying a DOA revlolver loaded. Then again, i am no expert. I really like the idea of loaded, but dont like the idea of accidental discharge. Is it possible for it to fire on its own?

I carried one in my pocket, "naked", one in the chamber, for a while, then also the p32... I have no extra holes... just designate that pocket as gun only, no keys, pens, cigs, what have you...

The P3AT is supposed to be "drop safe". Just make sure you carry it in a holster which covers the trigger guard.

The long DAO trigger is plenty safe to carry, with one in the chamber. I believe the P3AT also has a firing pin block.:)

It has a hammer block and is drop safe. Of course you should carry it in a holster that covers the trigger.
