Thank you very much for the input.This is a VERY informative video for a newbie!
It covers the bases, but not all of them.
It does not mention that you will never find a sweeter trigger than that of a good 1911 ... and some will even debate this.
It does not get into which is the safest gun to carry. ... and this is an on-going debate that will go on for eternity. Many will disagree with me, some vehemently, but I do not consider any striker-fired gun safe to carry with a round in the chamber. I also do not advocate fully trusting the safety on ANY gun ... even a "cocked and locked" 1911, and to many these are fighting words. I carry my 1911 with the hammer DOWN and in the "half-cock" notch ... and can thumb-cock the gun upon drawing every bit as fast as I can thumb down its safety ... and to many I am committing sacrilege with these words.
Mr. Wick, I am going to tune out from this thread now, just not interested in getting involved in the arguments that will surely follow. You will just have to wade through the ensuing barrage of opinions and make up your own mind. My personal mind is made up, carved in granite, and no amount of others' opinions will ever change it, so I have no interest in even seeing them.
