It you are not comfortable carrying a semi-auto without a safety what would you do with a typical revolver, carry a modern dbl action like the old Colt's Mdl P with an empty chamber under the hammer? At least in a dbl action that would roll a cartridge up when you pull the trigger dbl action. IMO way better than having to rack a slide IF you dont have the time or room (ie, its all comin' down RIGHT NOW in your lap). THAT is way more an uncomfortable thought to me than if the gun has a safety. IM the safety.
If carrying a revolver without a safety doesnt unsettle you and a semi-auto does then you should carry a revolver. Some people are revolver people, my wife is one; she cannot get comfortable with the autoloader.
Small and light revolvers, the S&W 442/642 series or the Ruger LCR are very good Dont consider the NAA mini-revolvers other than a novelty (please, no hate mail, we have one.....its cute).
The S&W M&P Shield semi-auto now comes with or w/o a safety, is light and flat, single stack in 9mm, two mags/one extended for an extra round. I dont need it but do I ever want it.
LCP 380 for edc, it fits with whatever I wear; its my repeater derringer or if I have another larger the LCP is my bug.
