I've come to realize that most of you who carry concealed do so "cocked and locked", with a round in the chamber, hammer back, and safety on. When asked why not carry with no round in chamber, hammer at rest, and safety off, you reply "there might not be enough time to rack the slide". That's understandable; there might be a situation where you need to pull your gun out and shoot immediately. In a situation like Tom Cruise's character in Collateral, where he kills 2 people, one of whom is shoving a gun in Cruise's eye. I don't have much experience with guns, but I do have a Walther P22 and the safety switch is VERY hard to toggle. It'd be a lot easier to rack the slide. Are most guns like that? On something like a USPc, can the safety be disengaged with a flick of the thumb?
