    1911 cocked & locked

    That was a good article.Chuck Taylor knows his business. I carry in condition one.I don't worry about any one thinking it is not safe since they will not see it unless they are a BG assaulting me.

    I was an Air Force SP from 1979-1983. We always carried the .38 full, the M-16 with on in the chamber w/30 round mag and three spares.

    There is no other way to carry a 1911 type but "Cocked and Locked". Any other choice turns it in to no more than a short club.

    Condition 1 Cocked & Locked is the only safe way to carry a 1911....of course you could carry it with empty chamber and hammer down but if you need to use the gun...do you have time to rack the slide? I wouldn't think so.

    Funny...I had a recent incident at my home that led me to examine this, it goes a little beyond carry.

    In any carry situation that I have been in cocked and locked for a 1911 gets my vote, I only carry with the assumption that I would have to engage someone else who has drawn.

    As far as nightstand etc. Im not so sure, everything I have is locked at home, I don't like it but I worry about someone getting into the stuff when Im not around.
