What is the best way to safely carry a Colt Mustang? One in the chamber, hammer down, half-cocked, or cocked and locked? Chamber empty, cycle when needed? Does the Mustang have some sort of transfer bar, I can't see one? I often drop it into my back pocket and don't want to put a crease in my rear. Thanks!

If it isn't loaded and ready its not going to do you any good. You may not have time to pull the slide back. You also with that gun may not have time to pull the hammer back either. Its a S.A system. Half cocked is safe.

I have a Sig 230. It has a round in the chamber and hammer half cocked. Its D.A. All I have to do is pull it out and pull the trigger. No messing around with a slide or hammer.

I was never comfortable with cocked and locked in a pocket even with holster. Sold the Mustang. The Ruger LCP does the same thing for me and is alot safer imo.

If is is loaded with hammer down, can it discharge by dropping it on the hammer, not that I am planning on doing that.

COCKED and LOCKED..READY TO ROCK...same as a 1911, only smaller, it "should" not fire if dropped on a down hammer, depending on the age of the weapon....lb

I'm not sure if Colt made different models of the Mustang, but mine(pocket lite) only has one safety. It does not have the grip safety. When I carry it, I carry mine hammer down.

LCP !!! Been carrying one in my back pocket for years... easy to sit on, and I have always kept one in tne tube. Never had a problem, period.
