I keep mine the same way. all though I'm sure I'll catch hell from somebody on here; I'm not one to use the safety on a shotgun unless hunting with other people. my 500 is a HD gun anyway, the m1 is my hunting gun and I find the cross bolt is much more convenient with any stock.That's how I keep mine. Safety off, chamber empty. There are many opinions on this matter and that is just how I view it. BTW I have never seen it as a problem with having to adjust your hand quickly for the safety. The only complaints I have with the Knoxx Stock is that the action release is kind of hard to get at due to the thickness of the grip, but thats it.
