I've been wondering this.
On your carry 1911, how wide do you prefer your thumb safety to be?
I carry mine trimmed down
to prevent snags and such, but I got to thinking that in a tense moment it may be easy to miss something that skinny, so I've been debating about going to a wider right side paddle (I'm a lefty).
The width would likely be Wilson's high ride. This is a Wilson that's installed, and rather than fitting a new safety, I figure I could pretty much "plug'n'play".
However, I only almost
missed the safety once
when drawing on a rabbit (still go the rabbit, and a few more, with some SWC rounds I have laying around. Rabbits are good for the reflexes I'm finding, and they're good in stew, too
Though I almost
missed it once
in literally thousands of draws, it got me to thinking about maybe I should go a little wider. If it snags, I can take it down until it doesn't.
What do you think? Worth the time and money? Or is this width about right for carry, in your opinion?
P.S. I do ride the safety, but my thumb stays up there just fine, just a minor consideration. J.S.
