Because if I drop it I don't want it to go off. Because it was the way the gun was designed AFTER the military made JMB put a grip safety on it. Because it is the safest way to carry a 1911. Because a flip of the safety and good to go. It is the safest way as pulling the hammer back in stressful situation could go wrong and cause a bullet to go down range when it needed to stay in the gun. Want more?

I think this thread has run its course. The OP asked a question, got his responses, and yielded to logic some time ago. Coming here and making additional posts that cover what has already been said accomplishes nothing, let this thread die.
