    Please don't forget that these conditions only make sense when applied to single-action, manual safety, semi-auto pistols.

    Attempts at translating them to other guns with different manuals of arms tends to be awkward and confusing.

    Condition 5: (Coined by a few gun writers...)
    . A round is chambered and the pistol is cocked. The hammer is pushed forward with a thumb and then engage the ambidextrous safety. When the safety is disengaged, the hammer automatically springs into the cocked position for a single-action press of the trigger. There is no longer the heavy double-action 1st shot to contend with. Trigger pull is consistent from first shot to last. This system is incorporated in the DAEWOO Fast-Action! C&S has a kit for 1911 systems: SFS (Safety Fast Shooting):)
