Favorite form of safety
 
Be it thumb, long trigger, heavy trigger, half cock, decocked, condition 0, 1, 2, 3... What makes you feel safe with your carry gun? Is it as simple as just having a covered trigger guard?

Within that, where and how do you prefer it? Ambi? On slide, frame, forward of grip or back?

I like a 1911 style thumb, ambi. The lever itself matters little as long as it's got a good Ridge to catch easily with single swipe of thumb upward or down.

^^ this and the fact I have control of it.

I'm the safety followed by my holster covering the trigger.

I like the 1911 setup for safeties.
I don't care for the ambi.

The most important safety device of every firearm is the one between the ears.

Other than the gray matter, I carry my Series 70 "cocked & locked". Low profile ambi safety's. The safety stays on until i have my off hand grip.
From what I see at the range, this is not for most shooters. That's where revolvers and DA SA are applicable.

A good holster is my favorite external safety.

I realllllly like grip safeties.

I dislike manual thumb safeties with ambi capability or extended versions. The only acceptable thumb safeties to me are decockers on da's and the ones found on 1911's.

Totally forgot about grip safeties, great point Jon, I too like those a lot, but only as their current purpose suits, as a back up to the thumb.

Still, thanks for pointing that one out.

And the one beginning at the knuckles.
