    Keep this in mind. We had straps on duty holsters on the police dept for our sidearms for these two main reasons. 1st reason was to help maintain control of ur weapon if u got into a fight with someone and it helped keep them from getting control of ur firearm but thats not foolproof and 2nd reason keep from losing ur weapon if u was chasing someone so that it does not jump out of ur holster as ur running.

    I don't typically peddle my own videos on this sight but I everything you're being told about the 1911 is pure and complete bull crap..



    Watch the above video especially around the 4 minute mark on which specifically goes in to "cocked and locked" carry and why it is safe (I go into EXTREME, broken down detail so there is no lingering question) including why you shouldn't have to worry about your hammer falling.. I won't retype what the video says because it would just take too darned long. After you watch it, go back to these guys who've been telling you all this crap and stick your tongue out at them for me.

    That being said, for concealed carry of 1911s I only carry open top... have been since the moment I got my CCW permit about two weeks after I turned 21.

I laughed and said hey that is the gun that the DEA guy shot himself in the leg with in the classroom when he was putting it i the holster.
    The police and military still do use a 1911 platfrom. Not as many as there used to be, but LAPD SIS and SWAT use Kimbers as well as a few jobs in NY.

    BTW, the DEA agent who shot himself in the leg was a tool. Glocks are completely safe to carry.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
