I have several pistols but I really prefer a pistol with a safety button on the grip. Some people call these palm safety’s or Grip Safety’s but I like to think of it as a thumb safety. If you are holding the grip of the gun then you are depressing the safety and it is ready to fire. But if you put your thumb on the hammer or striker plate then your palm is not toughing the safety button on the grip and it is safe and will not fire. I make it a practice to always put my thumb on the striker plate or hammer of the gun and utilize this safety.
