    How do you folks carry your round-in-chamber, double-action, non-decock "B" series CZ's, like the 75B or 85B?

    Cocked and locked?

    Half-cock, safety off?

    Hammer fully down, safety off?

    Please say which one you use, why you carry that way, and how you manipulate the gun to get to that condition. The "B" series firing pin safety allows a few more options.

    Thanks!

    I carry a PCR, but before that I carried a FNX 40. Hammer down safety off on half cock. Place left thumb between the slide and hammer, pull trigger roll your thumb over the hammer and it lowers. By doing it that way, your thumb completely blocks the hammer from hitting the firing pin and also wont have the energy to set off a primer as it falls into place. But I stopped carrying guns with safeties because I noticed several times the safety would get flipped on.

    Half cocked-the configuration CZ recommends.
