    Ditto the above folks that have stated that it's really not an issue once the operation of the thumb safety becomes an ingrained habit.

    At this point in my life I cannot even pick a 1911 up off a table in the dark without my thumb automatically moving to verify the status of the safety.

    Practice. Sure, its a good thing. My personal concern is after the shooting is over and you are pumped up with adrenaline. You gonna remember to put the safety on then? You gonna remember to uncock it?
    Why would you EVER think to try and decock a 1911? If it's empty, no problem. But, with a round in the chamber you should NEVER try to decock a 1911. Not because it makes it harder to shoot next time, but because of how dangerous it is- if your thumb slips off the hammer, something bad is going to happen.

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.
