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.

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.
