how often have you heard of an AD with a 1911 C&L'd?

IMO, it's much more common with Glocks, especially when re-holstering.

Friend of mine an I got into a tiss over this the other day. I keep mine in #2 all the time, an feels safe to me. His main point being "you never know when some one is going to do something stupid". I shot back with "well if there going to do something stupid, how is the round not in chamber going to change things?". I'm still going to keep code 2, weather he likes it or not.

Mine stays in condition 1 all the time and for very long periods of time, I have no worry of spring problems in the wilson 47D mags, or the sear from a constant cocked hammer. Like John Wayne said..."A gun thats cocked and not loaded ain't no good...." Conversely (sp) a 1911 that is loaded and NOT cocked ain't no good either....



Good shooting boys

Condition 1 all day baby!

Condition 2 sounds like a recipe for disaster.

I rarely 'carry' my 1911, but can tell you that I have had a problem mentally with the Condition 1 even though I have heard the experts say that it is the safest "ready" type position.

Even when I use it as my nightstand gun, I have struggled with this and more often than not put it in Condition 3.

A second problem with this condition is that the true 1911A1 does not have a firing pin block and an impact on the hammer which is resting on the firing pin could conceivably cause the gun to go off, although actual instances of this are virtually nonexistent.
Here is an interesting read if you haven't seen it before:
