As far as the safety goes I don't like slide mounted safties. But on my DA/SA I load the gun, decock it, and pop the safety back up. The DA/SA design was intended to be safe to carry a round chambered. Some felt the early SA guns were unsafe to carry with a round in them. The U.S. Armed Forces taught the 1911 should be carried without a round in the chamber for safety. Not saying they were right but never had a problem with a DA/SA gun with a round in the chamber, decocked without the safety on. The long first DA pull is supposed to help act as a safety.
