If the average cop can do it so can you!
Agreed.. when are you starting classes?

Free class this Saturday, as mentioned in another thread....

I agree 100% with what Brianaintright has said. If you're gonna carry, then carry. Half measures have no place when it comes to this subject.

IMO, if you carry, you should get some quality training. I'd rather be an expert with one gun than own 20 guns and not feel ok carrying one in the pipe.

Better yet, get training and become awesome...AND own your 20+ guns. :)

Completely misunderstood you - thought you said you carry the 1911 off-safety "sometimes". I get it now!

I Carried a 1911 for years, always cocked and locked with a round in the chamber until I took a tactical training course. The instructor had us draw from retention requiring that we gets the first shot off under serious time constraints.

Over the course of the weekend, I failed to flick off the manual safety several times, notwithstanding that I had practiced drawing and flicking off the safety hundreds of times.

That shook me enough that I sold the 1911, and started carrying a M&P compact 9mm, with no manual safety.

I figured that if I failed to flick off the safety during training, I didn't want to risk it in a life threatening situation with the adrenalin flowing.

That was just me, we are all different.

Different strokes for different folks, right? ;)

That is why I like DA/SA pistols. That long heavy double action trigger pull for the first shot acts as a safety.
