Anyone else thinks that manual safeties go on the frame?

    Unless it's a single action carried in Condition One, I really don't care where the safety is located or how it operates because I'm not gonna use it anyway. That said, I have no issue with the location of the Beretta safety. I can operate it without shifting my grip, if necessary, else I wouldn't own three of them and utilize them in a defensive role. For a manual safety that actually gets used, I've found no better than a 1911 or the AR15.

    If a semi auto doesn't have a manual safety I won't carry it. I prefer slide mounted ambidextrous decocker/safeties as it helps me grip the slide better with my arthritic hands. For shooting, frame mounted safeties are a little more convenient but you train for what you carry.
