It is important to note that most gun manufacturers' recommendations are designed to cover their butts, and not make good sense or be in the best interest of the gun. The MKIII's have a good firing pin safety on them. If the hammer is against the firing pin safety, round in the chamber or not, it is not going to fire even if dropped from a rooftop. However, if they recommend cocked and locked, someone might AD when holstering or drawing. Also, having the slide back keeps the gun out of battery and is another very safe condition.

I don't recommend any of these ideas because if you aren't smart enough to operate the gun without ADing or store it so your children can't get their hands on it, you shouldn't own it. Stupid people make my life too difficult already, without having to worry about one of them accidently shooting me.
