By dangerous I was referring to carrying cocked and locked. When I was a young police officer our standard service weapon was a revolver but the department allowed semi autos as secondaries. A lot of us carried 1911s and some officers like myself trained constantly with them. But due to several NDs, a couple with tragic results, the department finally prohibited single action semi auto pistols. I and a few others sent our Colts to Seecamp for their double action conversion.
Imagine if you will searching a dark building with a cocked 1911, a trip, nudge or just being startled is all it takes. When my department went to SA/DA semi autos the accidents stopped so like it or not they are inherently safer.
I too heard that Colt was going to stop production of these double action 1911s, so it will be interesting to see if they're in next years catalogue. If they do I may just keep this one in unfired condition.
