I never thought of that one.
I'll second Bender's.
At 7 I'd be dorking around with that pistol every chance I got. Kids get into EVERYTHING!
Memories of thinking I'm the smartest motherf*cker on the planet because I cleared the cylinder on Pops Python are still pretty fresh.
May have been as old as 10 at the time,but telling me not to touch something was taken as a dare.
Must be total freaking idiot of they shot something in their house. I carry mine cocked and locked. Haven't shot anything.
Trying to lower the hammer on a live round will do it.
Condition 1, cocked and locked. He is referring to condition 2 , one in the chamber with a lowered hammer "otherwise known as full retard"
I was forced to carry it this way in the Army many moons ago. But since then, I learned the correct way to carry it and do so.
If you get 1911-specific training by someone who knows the pistol, all your questions and concerns will be answered. And I don't recommend anyone carry any pistol w/o adequate training.
Knock it off guys. Right or wrong
That too is tricky. Had a "Survival instructor" back in the late 70s called Alex Goodrich. Used to come out to the SWPL matches with his students and poo poo what we were doing. They started bugging him to shoot a match.... bad idea. He did come out one day with a 357 in a cross draw, came onto the line and when the buzzer went, he proceeded to draw, sweeping his weak hand and shot off his weak hand thumb off. He instantly got the nickname "Thumbs" Goodrich.
Long story to make a short point. Finding good instructors is really tricky. Took one of the local LE instructors out to our private range and ran him through a lot of gunsite style drills. He went down in flames quickly.
If possible, Gunsite, Thunder Ranch and so on. They're known, they have a track record, etc etc.
Now that I have your attention:
The OP asked a legitimate question.... I've watched some people come on, read the OP and spew... might try to follow the thread to see how many times somethings been said already.
Most of all, instead of walking someone through a good explanation of what and why, we've seen "Idiot" "full retard" and so on. Rational thought process' do help with these things. We see a lot of this on not so great forums and they don't help.
Come on folks, is this the way to really help someone?If you don't like this, feel free to use "Ignore"
Quality training is key. I can be a moron but if I yell loudly enough, somebody might listen. I'm learning that I might have to travel for this, not ideal, but worth it. Good insight. Thanks.
Happy to help.
Still, you have to be an idiot to shoot stuff you didn't want to shoot.
Not carrying condition 1 is like trying to put your seatbelt on in the middle of an accident......
If you're afraid of a 1911 with multiple safeties get a Glock with half a safety...
My understanding of the so called Israeli carry is that it was common when Israel was young and had a lot of unreliable crap guns.
Go on. I’d like to hear all about this.
In the early 70s, very few Israelis carried sidearms. The assortment of stuff stashed in the armories was amazing, but sidearms were rare (except generally law enforcement)
