Anyone that compares a vintage lever gun to a 1911 as far as safety goes has probably handled neither.
AHH, yes. But just how do you let the hammer DOWN on that 1911. As for me, if I was unloading it, I would drop the mag and eject the shell in the chamber. Much like I would do for a lever gun. Eject the friggin' things= no problem. I have BOTH
, though the lever gun isn't an older model (I wish it was). This process works for me. Guess it's too simple.
