cocked and locked 1911: dangerous?
I would like to understand the rational in the concealed carry of a 1911 style in a cocked and locked condition.
A little background: I used to shoot competitively using a 1911 (in 45ACP) in race guns and stock. I shot about 80K rounds a year when I was active. I paid for this hobby by building these guns for others. I only say that to say I understand the inner workings and that I am very comfortable in handling pistols in that condition; however, I am uncomfortable carrying a weapon in that condition among the general public. I never dropped a weapon nor had an AD but it still gives me the willies to be around people when I have a pistol in that condition.
I would like to know what others think.
