How to Carry
I will be carrying my P320 .45 for personal protection, but a question came up I cannot figure out.
How do I carry the gun? With my 1911, there is no question. Cocked and locked, one in the chamber.
I still want a round in the chamber with my Sig, but I have no safety to secure the gun. What do I do to protect myself from an accidental discharge?
Thanks. .Gary Moore

The gun goes bang when the finger is in the trigger. Any other time it is OFF.

Gary, I understand your question and hesitation to carry a striker fire gun chambered with no "safety". However, these things are extremely safe with no external safety. There are internal safeties designed to prevent the gun from discharging a round unless the trigger is depressed, but with the P320 there is no trigger safety, so it can be discharged a little more easily than say a Glock or M&P. That said, if you carry it in a good holster that protects the trigger there is nothing to worry about. Your only concern need be upon reholstering the pistol, but if you employ and practice safe habits on this evolution you should have no problems.
I recommend getting an injection-molded plastic holster like the INCOG Shadow Eclipse, or a T-Rex. These holsters are extremely sturdy, and well designed to make the draw and reholstering evolution smooth and safe. I prefer to carry AIWB, or appendix inside the waistband. Here is a video of one professional discussing the process as well as it can be addressed, FWIW.

You don't need a retention holster and probably don't want one unless you open carry.
If you CCW, just get a holster that covers the trigger guard completely and you'll be perfectly safe.

The data supports having some concern regarding AD but it is a really minutely small risk. I carried a full size Glock 22 OWB for years and as long as you have the trigger buried in a good holster and practice withdrawing the firearm so as to not involve going inside the trigger guard then you will be fine I suspect. I have a 938 so I carry cocked and locked and a round in the chamber and with either gun it is the only way to carry IMHO. I wouldn't not carry nor would I consider racking a slide for an EDC. Good luck though and I have heard the 320 in .45 is a great gun having never shot one.

I have a Safariland IWB Retention Holster for both the Sig and the 1911, it was just the question of carrying the gun with a round chambered.
I have not tried carrying appendix, I will give it a try. Thanks to everyone for your responses. Gary
