Carry cocked and locked ?

When carrying the Mico Carry, is it like a full size 1911, with the hammer cocked and safety on , cocked and locked or one the chamber with hammer down and safety on? Or one in the chamber with safety on and hammer cocked ?

Cocked and locked, always. I don't have a Micro but I have a Sig P238 which is the kissing cousin to it. I also have a Sig P938 and a whole mess of 1911's and anytime anyone of them is being carried it's always condition #1.

Some statistics to share.
I read many web surveys of how American carry their pistol. About 80-90% said "condition one"
I search that of the Philippines the ratio is 70%
But in Thailand I did a survey in the most popular gun site it turned only 30%. Most prefer carrying "condition 3".

Ps. I prefer the cocked and locked.

Condition 1 is absolutely safe on the Micro.
With the trigger action on my Solo, I believe I would be perfectly safe carrying it cocked with round in chamber and without the safety on as long as it is holstered in such way as to cover the trigger.
But with the Micro definitely cocked and locked.

I own the same SIG P238, and I always carry cocked and locked.

In fact, I think the idea of being able to rack the slide while on 'safe' to eject a cartridge is a good idea.
