    Some pictures taken from the night Saddam was captured from a reliable source in the military. I blurred out the faces/names, but left rank on one of them; the important one...


    Note the handgun in use. I'm happy.

    At least someone over there has their head on right...C&L is the only way to go.

    Oh, BTW, the green box over the right hand soldiers shoulder...the 750,000 in American hundreds that he had with him.

    That's very cool. Normally in combat situations (not that I've ever been in one), I'd go C&L all the way.

    But most of the time in my civilian carry I don't though.

    Cool Pic!!!

    And another paragraph in the long and colorful history of the 1911....the capture of So Damn Insane!!
    C&L IS the way to carry the beastie! You never know when you are gonna need it! It is one of the weapons to use accurately(and powerfully) in a immediate close range action...that is what makes it to popular and effective.
    My 1911's are and have always been carried cocked and locked. Condition three is too slow(though sometimes nice around the house), Condition two gives you two ways to screw up....lowering the hammer over a live round and cocking the hammer(with hand way out of place) over a live round.
