AR safety manipulation
Just finished watching Act of valour ( great movie ) starring active military personnel so had a very real feel to it.
I had a question about operating of the ar safety. I understand that whilst patrolling etc if threat emerges the safety is flicked off as rifle is brought to firing position but there was a scene early on where they are rescueing someone in a building where known threats exist. Would the safety be off as rooms are cleared one by one or would safety remain on until actual threat is engaged ?. Honestly i can see pro's and cons to both and was just curious what the professionals do.
Thanks for any help you can give and if you haven't seen the film i recommend it
