I just adopted a habit of thumbing over the hammer to prevent firing when I draw my V1 P30SK, I'd rather not have a manual safety that I have to mess with in a panic. Just my personal preference. The long pull on that one also makes it less likely to accidentally fire. YMMV of course.Knight makes a good point. I went with the Safety because I carry AIWB, and I don't like the idea of a loaded gun pointed at my crotch, so I went with the S so I can carry cocked and locked. That's also the reason I went with the P30 over the VP9.
