What is half-cock good for on a 1911?
My best friend lives in PA and he is the one that told me to buy my Kimber Ultra CDP and I do love it. He has 30 or so guns in every caliber you can think of from varmint rifles to a derringer, but he has not been carrying concealed.
He owns a pharmacy and has a CHL (or what ever they call them in PA) and he has started to carry.
Tonight he told me he was carrying with one in the chamber but he only half-cocked the weapon. Now when the Kimber Ultra CDP is at half-cock the thumb safety will not engage.
His thinks this is safer. His plan is if he has to use the gun to pull the weapon and cock the trigger with his thumb.
This does not sound like a good practice to me, but I was just so shocked that this is what he is doing that I did not know what to say to him.
So I turn to you experts for advice, once again.
