    Maybe for pocket carry. I wouldn't carry a 1911 in any pocket because I carry mine cocked and locked. And a good holster is the only way to go for a 1911 IMO.

    so by what i understand a 1911 does have the safety on the grip if im correct so why would it be tricky carrying it cocked and locked?

    it isnt "the" safety, but it certainly is on e of the safeties, with the main safety on the rear of the pistol operated by the thumb

    California has laws on just this subject. Don't remember them offhand but others here probably will.
