I carry a Glock 23 when I am fly fishing (not as worried about water) and a Kahr CW9 in town so I don't have to think/worry to much about extra levers and safeties and that sort of thing. Recently I bought a Taurus pt 1911 ss and really liked the 1911 platform as a shooter.
So last week I bought a Springfield Armory EMP 1911 in 40 s&w to have as an alternate carry piece...
this is where my questions lies: How do you prefer to carry a 1911?
Empty w/hammer down?
Fully loaded, hammer cocked and on safe?
Or fully loaded on half cock?
If you would be so kind as to share your methods and maybe a brief description as to why you carry it that way I would greatly appreciate to hear the insite.
