I think this is probably my biggest head scratcher with those not carrying one in the chamber out of concern for an AD. Why buy a Glock/M&P/etc. then? Get a DA/SA with a safety (not just decocker). Then, you have both a heavier trigger pull in case you accidentally pull the trigger or it gets caught on your clothing, but more importantly it has an external safety.
