My main Carry gun is a .45 Colt Peacemaker. I carry all six rounds in it and the hammer has, full-cock, half-cock, and a light pull on the hammer is the safety. I have carried it all over blue yonder with it in that position and when I need it all I do is pull the hammer all the way back. It's single action, It's been thrown all around, carried for days like that and never had any problems. I carried it with out it on the safety for months and never had a problem. I like my revolvers.
