It's called Condition One - which is the only way to carry a 1911.

Well, he was the prettier of the two.

Legolas was the High Elf with the Bow that threw arrows out to the edge of the Earth. Grimli was the dwarf with the big beard and the battle axe.

You REALLY need to watch a few more REAL movies in your travels outside the house Matt....LOL

Oh yeah, Grimli was definitely the pitcher. He used Legolas's ears as handle bars.

Condition 1 is THE ONLY logical choice for carrying ANY conventional 1911 single action. That's fully loaded with thumb safety on and hammer at full cock. To carry it ANY other way is counterproductive.

As to the Para Ordnance LDA series, you carry them fully loaded with safety in OFF position, simply draw & fire. The reason I like Paras so much is they combine the proven 1911 design with the double action design where the hammer is down, impervious to any kind of accidental safety being knocked off or hammer snagging or anything to hamper drawing from concealed position.

Meh. If we resorted to PMs it wouldn't be here for all to enjoy/abhor.

Because that is the fastest method of employing those handguns while still being safe. Any other method requires taking your fighting grip off of the weapon, which is a good way to throw it on the ground.

Assuming you are running around all half cocked (is that where the term comes from?) you still must release a safety. I concede that with training, there is minimal to no extra time needed to release a safety, but you must concede that having less actions to take is logically more beneficial than having more actions. Like JD above, your argument for trigger pull only makes for an endorsement of Glock, because it has all of the features you extol of your 1911 and none of the potential impediments such as cocking or safety release.
The statement that is bold, underlined, italicized, and in large print is exactly when you stuck your foot in your mouth. It is not possible to cock the hammer on a P35/1911 and put the safety on. At this point, I'm going to have to ask you to leave this discussion to the adults...


As for my opinion on the best 9mm pistol, it must meet the following requirements: one consistent trigger pull between 3-6 pounds; have no active safeties; if it does have an active safety, it must be frame-mounted; have no grip safety; high capacity magazines available, for relatively inexpensive; and requires little to no preventive maintenance.

When I was shopping for a pistol, the only thing that met all of those criteria was a GLOCK. I chose the 19 because it bridged the gap well between concealment and duty. Today, I would also look at the Sig DAKs.

Other options, in order of preference, would be the P35, CZ75, Sig 226/228/229.
