As mentioned, I don't recommend carrying a single action gun with a chambered round hammer down in the pocket. If you were carrying it in a belt holster it would be a little different, but not in the pocket. As to carrying Israeli style, no round in the chamber, I've always said it is insane to do so, but I've recently changed my mind on that. It all depends on you, the individual. If you watch some Israeli operators, they're pretty damn quick with it, but they train...A LOT! If you're willing to train to that carry method then you should be fine in most cases. The process will be a little slower since you're having to retrieve the gun from a pocket, but it's really not going to matter under most conditions anyway. It's not like we're all smooth operators.I just bought two P238’s this week. I do hate the safety. In talking to a retired LE type that works at the range I go said
he keeps a round in the barrel with the hammer down (no safety). He has done this for many years in his pocket.
Reading found a guy that has no round in the barrel but racking the slide while drawing from concealment.
Guys I really don’t want the safety so what do you think of the two above ways to carry in pocket? Or another but w/o the safety.
