    Actually , no it wasn't. The original 1911 didn't have a safety at all the Army demanded that JMB put one on the weapon.

    That said, I agree if you're going to carry a 1911 it should be cond 1

    In what condition was the pistol that went into production in 1911 designed to be carried?

    With the hammer cocked and the grip safety disengaged, or "on safe" if you will.

    Condition I, usually with an IWB holster by Mark Waldon. Sometimes I use an Inside the Belt holster (The Mirage, from Milt Sparks). With this holster I carry in the appendix position.

  6. I carry a 1911A1. As a firearm instructor I am very big on safety above all else. I carry condition 1. that is the way this firearm is ment to be carried. I us a Blackhawk Serpa holster on the strong side.

  7. My Galco strong side holster has a nice feature, it has a strap that goes over the rear of the slide between the rear and the hammer. This way, even IF you could get the safety off, the grip safety down and the trigger pulled, it would just drop on the leathe, and not the firing pin. also keeps the 1911 from falling out, not that I think it would.

    First let me reiterate that I agree the most sensible way to carry a 1911 is Cond. 1.

    That said, I am unaware of any evidence that JMB designed the 1911 to be carried condition 1. The fact that the Army ,not him, insisted on the safety argues agsainst it.

    Also, I can find no evidence that the Army ever intended Condition 1 carry either. In fact I have never seen an FM on the 1911 that doesn't state that it should be carried in Condition three. Again this argues against your thesis.

    Your gun, you carry it any way you want

First off, how do you carry your 1911, "cocked and Locked" (hammer back,safety on) or "stand by" (round chambered, and hammer at half cock)I have been given advice by other people. (mostly non-1911 CC carriers) And I'd like to hear from this group. Second, What holster do you use. I have a Citadel 1911 CSP, with a BlackHawk Serpa Holster that I plan to carry "strongside". Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Bob
    I always carry "cocked and locked." Usually I use an IWB summer special style or a SideGuard IWB pancake holster. Occasionally I wear a SideGuard OWB beltslide holster.

    Condition 1 in combat.

    Condition 3 everywhere else.

    Yes, yes, I know - before you all get in a huff, I understand alot of people sort of unconsciously consider themselves going into combat whenever they step out the front door.

    But that's another topic.
