    Safe to carry Storm hammer down, safety off?

    Is it safe to carry a PX4 storm holstered with the hammer down and the safety off? Will a hit to the hammer cause it to fire?

    the manual says they have a firing pin block safety... means it wont release the pin until the trigger is fully depressed.

    Sho nuff. That's really how its meant to be carried. No issues. Most modern semi autos will have a firing pin block.

    If you take your slide off, that's what that little safety plunger is on the inside of the slide (the part you can push up and down towards the rear of the slide)

    Thanks for the replies. I read that in the manual but wanted to be sure I understood correctly.

    My personal preference is DA/SA guns. That 1st DA pull makes it less likely something stupid happens. And, I've dropped a couple of guns over the years by accident. Never a boom.

    Ship any concerns about carrying in the partially cocked and safety off position? Not exactly sure why but with Berettas I have always instinctively decocked swept safety back up and off and then thumb cocked hammer back to first notch backing that hammer face just off the safety plunger. Not necessary but is it in any way unwise?

    Why would you do it, if it wasn't necessary?

    Because you're an alcoholic and diabetic?

    I would think, that if the firearm was in the proper holster, with a hammerguard, no foul....I don't think that I would want to carry it with an exposed hammer, that is back a tad....just me. I own and shoot Beretta's by the way.

    That is the way I keep my Px4 Storm in my night stand every night when my husband works the night shift.
