Cocked and locked only, like Dan said, I don't the idea of putting the hammer down on a round.

My opinion is that is the wrong way to carry a 1911. Cocked and locked is the way.

But if your mind is made up that you are gonna carry condition 2, keep a wide spur hammer on it.

The gun was designed to be carried in condition one. Do you drive your car from the back seat?

If you are worrisome, don't carry.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
