    We were trained in the USMC (1911 A1) to drop the safety while
    simultaneously pulling the trigger.


    Safety is never off unless engaging a target.


    Safety is immediately snapped on after engaging target until new threat rears it head.


    Swat teams prefer this weapon because of safety and speed while engaging target.


    Most jams I've seen with automatics occur while chambering the first round.


    Due to debris in the chamber, magazine too full and "limp wristing" the weapon.


    Keep your finger out of the trigger guard until the weapon is clear of your body and "friendly" folks.


    Some newer weapons come with a ridge to rest the trigger finger on when not engaging a target.

    Rise of the dead thread :-) its all good.

    What I wanted to really say was, its interesting that you were taught to simultaneously snap off safety and pull trigger. It seems a lot of 1911 carriers snap safety off as soon as it leaves the holster.

    Anyone want to go into further detail as to when you take the safety off? And why?

    Almost always. Only time I don't is after returning from Illinois. When I have to go to Illinois I have to unload firearm & lock firearm separate from ammo. When I get back across state line I stop & reload, sometimes I don't rechamber a round right away .

    Since I carry a DA/SA CZ75B or a DA/SA CZ2075 RAMI or a DA/SA (I'm begining to see a pattern here) S&W 6906. I never put the saftey on. One less thing to screw up under pressure

    I carry similar, Jericho 941 DA/SA, safety off.

  11. The bad guy won't give you time to load a round into the chamber. It's almost ignorant not to carry one in the chamber. That's like carrying around a pen with no ink. What's the point?
