I always carry with one in the chamber, and safety off.
Do not carry any firearms that need to be cocked while carrying.
Back when I was still competing, we frequently did an exercise called The Cooper Assault, which included vaulting as quickly as possible over a six-foot wall.
Most of us carried 1911s, for competition (or P.35s—they work the same).
The wall was always taken with the holstered pistol in Condition One: Chamber loaded, hammer cocked, safety on.
How did that work out for you?
I think well over 90% of the guns I've carried have had the hammer cocked while carrying, safety on of course.
LAGuy, guns that are meant to be carried hammer cocked, safety on are just fine.
Guns such as your Beretta are not meant to be carried with the hammer cocked.
That is it...no more, no less, thread closed.
