Default 1911 Poll

See a lot of folks scared of 1911's that are cocked and locked. I don't get it, but it seems like there are a bunch out there. Just curious what the numbers are here on our little forum.

If you don’t have a round in the chamber you are carrying a club.

Some people just don't understand the function of the single action of the 1911 first shot.

People that I have shared that I'm carrying a 1911 always look scared that the hammer is cocked. But after explaining the operation, they lose their fear.

My 1911 is a Para Ordinance Tac Four
You can't cock it.

I carry my P12 ParaOrdnance cocked and locked. The 1911s and clones were designed for that, hence the double safety system on them.
