    It leads me to believe that "Out of sight,really is out of mind!"

    Would it make these people feel safer if the 1911 had it's hammer inside the frame like on their DA firearms?
    Folks that don't know anything about pistols are usually the worst ones about complaining about a SA semi auto being carried hammer back and safety on. I go quite a few comments from folks that didn't know any better at the gun shop I worked at when carrying a 1911 or a Hi Power in that manner.

    FN even came out with a modified version of the Hi Power called the SFS (Safety Fast Shooting) several years ago. The design was actually the brainchild of the folks over at Cylinder and Slide (C&S and Wayne Novak are the premier Hi Power smiths). To use it, you chamber a round as usual but instead of thumbing the safety on, the safety is engaged by pushing the hammer forward (the hammer goes forward and the lever goes up into the 'safe' position at the same time). When you want to shoot, you thumb the safety down like normal and the hammer pops back to the fully cocked position for firing. One of these days, I'll run across one of the SFS Hi Powers priced right to add to the collection.

    While grilling is always one of my favorite past times, I am told that my vegan chili is down right awesome. I not vegan, far from it, so I also make a good clam chili, chicken chili, shrimp chili, and true to form steakhouse chili. I am still looking for a good recipie for turkey chili or lamb chili.

    for a lamb dish other than an old fashioned British Sunday joint, my thought would be to ask an Indian chef, Indian as in sub-continent, not Native-American. Where I come from (the UK) Indian restaurants are one of the most popular places to eat at, and they always do wonderful things with lamb.

    Clam Chili is typically a white chili, just like chicken chili.

    I really hate when people throw children into this equation. If your child gets his hands on the gun, getting his fingers pinched is the least of your problem. You failed to secure your firearm, and failed as a parent. Now how are you going to protect your children from getting their fingers pinched by doors, drawers, folding chairs. Oh no, what will you do if a meteorite falls out of the sky? Better keep him locked up in a bubble, and away from the dangerous world.

    Using children is a page out of the gun-grabbers handbook. e.g. Banning firearms 1,000 feet from a school. 99.99% of citizens with CCW permits have no intention of hurting children nor any adults. But these laws only help clear the way for the few with malicious intent. Thereby preventing honest citizens from deterring such attacks.

My reason is my young son is at the age where he wants to get his fingers in everything. One of the last things I'd want happening when his fingers are exploring is for any of them to be between the hammer and the frame IF the hammer fell forward. We can all agree that is, in theory, impossible without outside help but I've heard my son scream in pain and I don't want it to be because of this scenario, so I switched to carrying an XDM instead of a 1911. At the end of the day they both go bang and both will make a hole in whatever you point them at. I'm not worried by carrying a gun ready to go bang, I'm just trying to avoid one particular accident until my son is old enough to know not to touch.
    Beware the Fury of a patient man.

    I carry cocked and locked 1911 and have for many years, the booger hook answer is correct, keep your finger out of trigger guard and 1911 is as safe as any gun you can name, Glock with its safety trigger is no better than a revolver, put a chimp in a room with a loaded Glock and a loaded cocked and locked 1911 on the table and I would be willing to bet he would discharge the glock before the 1911. Just opinion.
