Cocked revolver vs cocked 1911
I think the reason some people are nervous about seeing a cocked and locked 1911 is that it reminds them of a cocked revolver. They may not be familiar with the safeties on a 1911, and assume that it somehow resembles a revolver which has no safeties. In a cocked condition, a revolver will generally fire with a 3 or 4 pound touch on the trigger.
At a minimum, the C&L 1911 will require 3 actions to fire - a firm grip on the grip safety, a thumb release of the thumb safety, and a 4 pound pull on the trigger. While sitting in a proper holster, none of those actions are likely to happen.
