Alright I have searched but never came up with the right phrase to get a good hit on the site here.
I own my 1911. Kimber. I am curious if I can leave it cocked all the time as I like to use it both home defense, next to my pillow, and then I holster her up and take er' with me wherever the day takes me.
It is pretty much in condition 1 24/7 until I unload to clean or swap rounds to practice at the range every week.
I have shot around 1500 rds through it so far.
Is this safe or will it wear out the hammer spring (not sure what it is called)?
