Safety concerns
 
As I've been thinking very seriously about carrying a Sig238 as an EDC at work, I worry about the safety being safe. I've always carried double action pistols which I didn't have to count on safeties. I do apt maintenance and am always crawling in tight spaces and laying under sinks and such. While I'm doing so, what are probabilities that I'll flip off the safety unknowingly? Obviously this could be catastrophic. Other than that, I think I'm ready to get me a 238 for EDC. Thanks for your opinions.

If you keep it holstered there isn't much risk as the trigger cannot be accessed. If you are planning on pocket carry that is a great point for concern. I have one and love it for hot weather carry where a 1911 compact is a bit too heavy.
