    It bothers me that people fail to take the time to learn about and understand the guns which they choose to carry, and fail to carry them in the manner in which they were designed to be carried! Just sayin, not meaning to flame anyone.

    I didn't think you could put the safety on with the hammer lowered on a 1911? Or at least not on mine I can't....

    How much time is he going to be wasting pulling the hammer back when instead he should just be flicking the safety off and pulling the trigger, rendering attacker useless.

    On a traditional 1911, you can't. At one point in the 1911s's history, lowering the hammer on a live round WAS NOT uncommon, it's the very reason John Moses Browning designed it with a LARGE WIDE SPUR hammer, which when completely pulled to the rear, also disengages the grip safety (to allowed the hammer to be lowered one handed), he didn't place the large spur hammer on the pistol for looks. If you look at the 1911s evolution, the hammers started getting smaller as the manual of arms slowly changed.
