@jammer
If you are uncomfortable at all you should research and train as suggested. Get some snap caps and train, train, train.

If you are still uncomfortable change firearms and get one you can be comfortable with.

If you aren't 110% comfortable you will hesitate when you need to fire and your outcome may be disastrous for you.

Sometimes I do. My professors just think I'm a little strange.

Thanks everyone. I am getting used to drawing the gun, taking off the safety, aiming and then placing finger on trigger and firing. Of course I've been using snap caps but I am getting used to that same routine and I'm feeling more betterish about leaving it cocked and locked.

If you don't trust the gun you're carrying to be in condition 1, then I believe you need to find a gun that you do trust. If you don't trust yourself, then I would say don't bother carrying.

Train, train, train. Practice, practice, practice. Condition one is the ONLY way to carry a single action auto. You would not go deer hunting with your bolt action rifle and keep an empty chamber, would you? A rifle with a round chambered and the safety on is the same thing as condition one. You just cannot see the hammer sitting back there all cocked and scary, but it is the same thing. Put it in perspective and it can ease the nervousness.

I carried a Defender-sized 1911 for awhile, always condition 1. Every now and then when I was home for the night and removed my holster I noticed that somehow the thumb safety had gotten disengaged. Oops.

There were still 2 things keeping it from going bang, though. 1) It was in a holster with the trigger covered. 2) Grip safety.

Does the JHP have a grip safety? Can't remember...

Default try a DA only pistol

I have a Sig P250c. It has NO safeties on it. Works just like a DA revolver with all chambers loaded. I believe S&W makes one also. Great gun. Draw, point, shoot.
