Not really, the 1911 was built back when people knew how to do things for themselves. A 1911 is not at all hard to use IF you have enough common sense to learn the weapon and use it safely.

It is a matter of conditioning yourself to follow safe handling principles. After you've done it for a while it becomes second nature, and if you ever do anything unsafe like fail to apply the safety, it'll haunt you until you correct it.
