Hear, hear! On all accounts!
Rarely on the shows did anyone beam anywhere with weapons already out, unless they knew for a fact they were going into a hostile situation. And even then a lot of times the weapons were holstered. Heck I remember a lot of the original series shows a lot of the away team didn't seem to have weapons at all!
Holster should be the defaul in all situations. I've not seen where firing from a holstered position is any slower than firing with the weapon already out. I think it's graphical only.
My vote is always holstered, or if not, at least make the entire away team do what I do (holster if I holser, crouch if I crouch, run if I run, and walk if I walk).
