    There is a good reason why there are never any screen doors installed on submarines.

    Not the ones I've seen. They sit low on the slide like this.This link has 8-10 of them, most as a part of the grip.

    Next time I go to the range and shoot the center out of my target with my 1911, I'll think about how I wish I had a set of those grips........then again, probably not!

    It is my understanding that the "gas pedal" safety was so you could rest your thumb on top of it to prevent your thumb from putting the pistol on safe while firering when you didn't want to. I have always locked my thumb down below the safety on 1911/P35 pistols and have never had this problem. Clint Smith will tell you otherwise---see his rant about this in one of the gun mags a month or so back.

    But this "gas pedal" isn't on the thumb safety.

    OD is correct. It only controls the throttle.
