Depends on the unit and depends on just how trained.
AR safeties make it very easy to go off target, on safe.
I've had unit level trainers preach 'my finger is my safety' quite a few times. Also had a kid put a round in his own knee.
Safeties have a place, and they're not hard to use.
Kyle Lamb, Larry Vickers, and quite a few others would bang this into your head.
Pump shotguns carried chamber empty are the only time I'd differ, because it's chamber empty. Soon as the chamber's loaded and you're off target...... safe that piece.
