      I don't know what service you were in but in my 13 years in Army I carried a 45 most of time first few years and all time when I switched to MP's Never was I taught C&L or was it allowed except when you were sure contact us about to take place. Only time I carried C&L was the year+ I was on special assigment off base in civies and packing my personal 45 Commander with the PM's approval. He still made me carry ball in stead of super vel.

      Yes, I too have heard that most military were made to carry w/ the hammer down and no round in the chamber.

      That was my point--how does an MP (or AP) know that contact is not just a wisp away no matter where the duty--but in all fairness C&L was our combat carry and ball is all we were issued. In KOREA my room mate was the base small arms instructor and ranted and raved --true most USAF personnel are issued the 38 spl at this time 30 years + ago --they were made to carry on an empty with the revolver--Most of my duty was spent on assignment to other branches or in civvis and in L.A. we were issued 38 supers--for what reason I am not sure. I was not AIR Police but did shoot with a lot of them on the range--but the service bosssssses are always right--huh--

      but what happens when you need to use it. Hope you don't have to challeage anyone who is cocked and locked. I bet your finger goes on the trigger before it's needed. To each his own.

      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.
