I guess I am a little confused about the concern for carryng the 1911 in condition one (cocked & locked).
The 1911 style single action semi-automatic handgun designed by the late great John Moses Browning is one of the safest handguns available. With two, not one but two safety systems built into the design, it is all but impossible to have an accidental discharge.
This gun was carried by literally hundreds of thousands of soldiers in conflicts in every part of the world and any kind of battle condition therein. I have been witness to tests performed on the gun where a cocked & locked gun was dropped from a height of 10 feet drectly on the hammer. In the hammer drop test the hammer actually broke 2 of the 50 timed dropped, but the gun never discharged. The grip safety is also key to the prevention of the AD.
Though I own several other styles of guns (i.e. SIGP220ST, Taurus PT-145, and even a Para Ordnance LDA Carry 12) I still feel most comfortable with my many 1911 style guns.
I guess education of the system is the key to having people understand how the system works. But you have to want to learn.....now don't you????
