Hi Everyone, In my quest for a 1911, I've been trying to gather up as much knowledge as possible, and this one recently came up in another Forum: From what I've learned, in no particular order, she could: (1) Carry in "Condition 2," round chambered, hammer down. Cock hammer with left thumb. (2) Use left index finger to actuate the single-side thumb safety. (3) Use a three-finger draw technique where the left thumb rides on the left side of the grip and works the safety, crossing the thumb over to the right side to assume a full shooting grip (although the gun should be able to be shot without the thumb coming to that position) - note that this is the same as how some schools teach you to manipulate a single (left) side-only safety on an AR. Can you guys and gals here please discuss some pros and cons of each - as well as bring up things that I may have missed? Yes, I know, she could install an ambi safety. I'd like the discussion for my sake, as I'm right-handed and will likely end up with a 1911 that has only "righty controls" on the left side of its frame. Nevertheless, I want to make sure that I'm competent in ambi operation, though.
