Although this gun appears to have a half-cock safety, the pistol does not function that way. It would need to be fully cocked and on safe to be carried at the ready. Carrying this pistol half-cocked with the safety on may cause accidental discharge and is not recommended.
We could say this makes a great pistol for staying proficient with firearms...and it DOES...but that's not the only reason you'll want to shoot it. It's fun, too! Includes just about everything you need to start shooting the minute it arrives.
