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.

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.

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

Who the hell conceal carries a weapon without a round in the chamber? Retarded.
Lot's of folks do! But just like I wish they wouldn't tell me what to do or how to carry, I don't try to tell them either. I let them know why I carry the way I do. If they don't feel comfortable doing so, then that's their prerogative.

I've tried to convince a family member that they need to get over their fear of their weapon killing them with a round in the chamber. But alas, no movement on that front.

I don't carry at all. If I did, it would be option 1. I do have a beautiful kimber I impulse bought over a year ago I haven't taken out of the plastic yet. Too pretty to get dirty. Hmmm. that sounds pretty gay.

Condition 1, always... and carry a glock as back up for when the 1911 fails...

Thought this would wait till the 2nd page!

Not a matter of if it'll happen but when.

Bring on the haters saying "I've shot 1000s of rounds thru my 1911 and it's never had a FTE".

And FWIW, I love 1911s.
