    I carry a SW99 .40, and I carry it decocked, so the initial shot will be DA.

    Clarification please.....

    The only DA/SA pistols that I am aware of that can be safely carried SA are some CZs, some older Tauruses and certain USP variants. No SIG, Walther or conventional H&K, nor other traditional DA semi can be safely carried cocked, per modern training doctrine.

    I'm sure I misunderstood the question, and for the record carry a C&L SA or Glock.

    Oddly enough, a downwardly-plunging firey handbask
    My Witness 10mm is a DA/SA and I have always used it as an SA pistol, and will carry it as such. It also has an external saftey lever.

    (Most) Modern Sig designs don't have external safeties, and shouldn't be carried cocked.
