      No. with the safety on there is no way the firing pin and hit the primer. Not only is the trigger not engage but the firing pin block must be raised in order for the firing pin to move forward.. now I imagine that if you dropped your gun from a 10 story building there is a chance that it could go off..but not likely. The reason for concealed carry is to be able to quickly have access to a weapon that is fully functional. You may not have time to rack the slide and hope you don't have a malfunction and pull the trigger.

      lets say the pistol is fully cocked, if you drop the safety, that hammer slams back. is there a chance it could discharge?

      No grasshopper, you have one of the safest designs in pistols. If you get a ND you really screwed up. Did you read your owners manual? What do you want to do, leave it on your nightstand, walk around the house? Me personally, I don't have one in the chamber unless I'm carrying, and when I do the safety is off, but of course you could leave the safety on, but yes it's perfectly safe, but if you just lay it around w/ one in the tube safety on or off for extended periods you got a rattle snake there partner and generally forgetting that one is in the chamber is a no, no. Or somebody else could pick it up and if children are around definately no being unattended.

      That would be extremely stupid. Anything that gets that trigger in SA and you guessed it. It won't discharge unless the trigger is pulled to the rear. It has a firing pin block until the very last stage of the trigger pull. When you see that little plunger on top of the slide begin to raise above the slide it's ready to go.

      Unless you enjoy the thought of possibly becoming a paraplegic for the rest of your life, do not ever carry a gun anywhere near your spine!

      Usually 3 - 4 o'clock position... never on the back..that is only in movies..but where you carry is up to you.. what is comfortable and concealable. You must practice your draw many times with an unloaded weapon. Then to the range and practice more.. Most ranges won't let you practice drawing...

      I think I told you in a previous post. You should not decide to carry based on me. It is a personal thing. Make sure you get some good training..
