    Hmmm, the three guns I carry (not at the same time of course)...

    Ruger Security-Six, Kel-Tec P3AT, or a Glock G19, lemme think, nope, never did find a safety on or off :neener:

    Used to carry a Star Firestar with a hair trigger job. One time I took it out of the holster to find it cocked and unlocked, and it scared me a lot. Nowadays I carry a Glock 26 and a Kel-Tec P32.

    Yes, but the grip safety is on there for a reason.

    We are talking 1911s right?

    :D

    On a 1911, you can change the shape of the safty where it contacts the plunger to adjust the ammount of pressure required to move it. My carry gun requires a little more pressure than my comp guns and I haven't had any problems it also has an ambi safty.

    No. I carry a 1911 C&L mostly on weekends working around the ranch. Desk job carry gun is a Kahr P9. Years ago, I was carrying a Ruger Blackhawk .357 in a Lawrence Elmer Keith model holster while working cattle on horseback. I looked down and saw the hammer at full cock. Had to stop and clean off the saddle.

    It happened with my 1911 once, but it was because I was using a "universal" holster. When I've stuck with wet-formed leather it has never been a problem.

    Yes, once a long time ago when carrying in a cheap IWB holster without a slide guard.

    Now I use Spark's holsters and I can't swipe the safety off when holstered.

    Yes - before switching to an IWB that actually covered the safety

    Never had the problem of the thumb safety snapping off safe.

    Had it happen with a 1911 in a Fobus, likely from my cover garment coming between the gun and my body while getting in & out of the car. The holster kept the trigger covered; when I pulled it from the holster for a wipe down at the end of the day I kept my finger off the trigger and the weapon pointed in a safe direction, so it was really a non-issue.

    Nope, but even if it the safety does flip off there is nothing to worry about. The trigger is protected and even if the sear bumps out of the full cock notch it will catch on the half-cock. Although... if you maintain your gun correctly the sear would not be able to bump out of the full cock notch.

    The best safety is between your ears.

    Mine does it even with a expensive quality holster. Not the holsters fault by any means. It just happens that my 1911 has a sharper than normal strong side safety. It cut itself into the holster and every now and then likes to slide itself to off. Its a non issue to me since I practice the 4 safety rules anytime my hand touches my weapon.

    It happened to me with a Star BM once, and I stopped carrying C&L after that. Of course I was using a cheapo holster, but still it made me want to go back to wheelguns. Esp. since the Star has no grip safety. I've never been comfortable C&L.
