The grip safety IS a manual safety, so yes, I would and have. The manual safety on a 1911 was an afterthought when JMB was designing the pistol, so it is really no different than carrying any striker fired handgun without a manual safety.Cocked and Locked is the safest way to carry the pistol. Would you carry it cocked without a manual safety?
Carrying cocked without the safety is a bit risky. There isn’t any risk with the safety engaged.The grip safety IS a manual safety, so yes, I would and have.

I absolutely wouldn't carry a 1911 without a Manual Thumb safety...
It actually has the Sig tan XL grip. I carry it with a 12 round mag and back-up 15 round mags.Hey DocS, if you are using a 10 round mag for the P365 and want to improve the grip then add a Tatical Development full grip. I guarantee you will love the P365 much better.
It is hard to do sometimes.If I don't agree with something in a post, I should read, observe, and just move on, instead of going out of my way, to interject with unwanted, sarcastic commentary
Hopefully the discussion starter can forgive and forget, or at least forgive. The apology was sincere. Thanks, @BudsIt is hard to do sometimes.
I will catch myself going down that Non-Productive road and will have to stop myself.
As my Dad would always say, "If you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all"
As far as your post..I've seen much much worse in my 3 years at SigTalk!
These days when it comes to "Manual Safety" Threads / Posts unless I can Technically add to the discussion
I just try and stay from adding personal comments or getting into it with someone on the subject.
In the end it just makes us both look stupid and immature.
In the end rarely does anything good come of it.
It's Crazy...But....I would say that in most Handgun Forums the most heated topic is always "Manual Safety's"
These are 2 camps that will just never agree and it tends to get carried away....in the Wrong Way!
Knowing when to step in and when not to can be hard sometimes but I think it gets easier.
Past experiences have made it easier to walk away.
Good luck in your endeavors Grillfather.
If you succeed we all benefit from it.
All of our respect for others feelings whether we agree with them or not helps make SigTalk a more Respectable and Enjoyable Forum for everyone.
We just want to talk "Guns" and not get into Personal Affronts and or Rants.
Peace be to US ALL!
Brother, it's all good. I guess I wasn't exactly warm either.Having now served my 10 day ban, or however long it was, I want to apologize to @DocS, for starting drama in his discussion. After 23 years on the streets of Milwaukee, and several in the sandbox, I'd developed a IDGAF attitude about anything and everything. I realize, if one, I don't agree with something in a post, I should read, observe, and just move on, instead of going out of my way, to interject with unwanted, sarcastic commentary. Really I have a hard candy shell, with a nougat center. I was wrong to disparage anyone's choice, and now I'm just going to read, and take my ball and go home. Anyone else, sorry for being a d-bag. I let practically having to beg on one knee, and lay down a satin pillow, for scumbags, affect my after work hours, and since no one here are any perps I'm dealing with, it wasn't deserved. Bowing out gracefully. ✌
I would like to do this to my P365.
In the end between Optic and Slide work what was your ballpark cost.
So I know what to budget for.
I appreciate the acceptance, man-to-man. I have to realize at some point I'm not in a war zone, on the ghetto side of town, and that at the end of the day being a father, husband, and Christian/Catholic, should take presidence over unwanted, biased, one-sided opinions. God bless you as well!Brother, it's all good. I guess I wasn't exactly warm either.
A week turn around ?? You are giving me hope since my slide just got to FA two days ago and I was expecting 6-8 weeks.Good morning,
The Fabricated Arms Optics cut was $100 (I added the Optional "Fill Plate" for an additional $40)
The MagnaPorted port cuts in the slide and barrel was about $175 including shipping and the turn around was about a week (including shipping). They do offer a Military/Veteran discount.
