    To whoever said they carry their 1911 condition 2 at the beginning of the thread: please reconsider, it's very dangerous and there is ZERO benefit to that mode of carry. All it takes is a slip while lowering the hammer and you just had a negligent discharge. All it takes is dropping the gun or hitting something on the hammer and you just had a ND.
    Again, there is NO benefit to carrying condition 2...

    My Kimber is in condition 1 all the time except when I am cleaning it.

    My shoot gun on the other hand has 7 in the tube and none in the chamber. I believe the racking sound of a 12 ga pump is the most distinguishing sound you will hear in the middle of the night in a quiet house and should do the trick.

    So I can stand at the top of my stairs and rack the 12 ga to make a point that you should leave my house.

    I can draw and flip the safety off and shoot in fluid motion to stop an attack on me, mine or an innocent!

    It's one thing to draw and rack quickly on the range, it's quite another to draw and rack while going hand to hand with an assailant.

    Depends on what in the holster

    G30 condition 1
    P239/229 condition 2
    USP-C/P2SK condition 2

    Can't cock the hammer fully, as it's a double action working off of a partially locked hammer without a safety.

    Cocked, and locked if that is an option regardless the firearm.

    I carried condition one when I had my 1911.With my Ruger P345 it's a different ballgame.

    All of my .45's are carried in condition 1. The only exception is one from South America. It has no grip safety. It stays in condition 2. It has a wide hammer spur. If it is cocked it gets fired.
    That's the way John designed them and that is the way I use them.

    Browning did not design them to be carried condition 2and I genuinely hope you never learn the hard way why it is so unsafe.

    Another vote for cocked and locked.
    I'll take a .45 and a large side of JHPs, please.

    Locked Cocked and ready to Rock. If I didn't keep 1 in the chamber I would only have 15 rounds.

    I carry cond. 1 with a defender (carry lite) - AND with my SA-XD .45.
    Can't see 5 centavos diference btx c&l with a hammer or one in the tube in a striker fired pistol.
    To become more confident with c&l carry, practice carry with a new (unmarked) snap cap in the chamber. Do this at home while doing all those mundane chores like mowing etc. Also will make you much more comfortable with concealed carry away from home. A month or two with no marks on that snapcap really made a difference in my attitude about cond. 1. If you do get a pin mark on that sc - re-examine your holster & gun handling habits.
    stay safe out there!
