    There is another poster on this forum, Oldowl, who you might want to get in touch with. He is from MA as well.

    When I switched my usual carry from my Beretta .380 DA/SA to my 1911 I was a little less comfortable at first. Something about that hammer cocked back.....but it was irrational. Both are equally safe to carry condition one. Otherwise I'd have to go back to my .357.....hey, no safety at all on the revolver!

    Life happens in a split second, the less thought you need to put into a responce, the faster your responce will be. If you can't trust your hardwear not to misfire, get new hardwear.

    I would just add that it's not just hardware. If you can't trust yourself, you need to take additional training and/or practice until you can. After all, the life you save may be your own...

    This is another feature that moves the gun from "let me check this and fiddle with it" to "just pull it and shoot it." And that's why I carry one. Glocks, gotta love 'em.

    All this goofy "Press Checking"....Never heard of it. I have carried a 1911 battery of arms for decades. If it is on my hip, it is condition one. I don't guess, or check..I know. Load one in a mag..chamber..load a full mag into the well..VOILA...not that difficult..Hell, even some libs own guns..it has to be simple.

    Don't get no plainer then that! I did know someone that "Press Checked" his auto, NOT a 1911A1 and lost part of his hand. Stupid is as stupid does.............
