    From surfing these forums, I've picked up that condition white means unattentive or distracted. Something like that.

    What are all the "conditions" if there is even an actual list and where do they come from?

    Thanks Drew,

    That was easy haha.

    Hey, also, what are the conditions of firearms? For instance, Isn't condition 1 when the gun will fire if the trigger is pulled?

    Condition 'White' could be called Condition 'Brown' since that is what in your ears.

    simplifying this

    Condition White: You are alseep.

    Condition Yellow: You are awake and aware.

    Condition Orange: You are fully on alert, selecting possible tragets.

    Condition Red: You are engaged. You will fight for your life or die.

    Same color code being used for homeland security.

    White - You are in your home watching TV or interacting with your family feeling safe.

    Yellow - You go out of your home. You are aware of your surroundings but not worried. Kind of like driving defensively.

    Orange - You see or preceive something that makes you nervous or wary. Your gut feeling is telling you this may be trouble.

    Red - You are under attack.

    For firearm conditons
    Condition 0 - A round is in the chamber, hammer is cocked, and the safety is off.

    Condition 1 - Also known as "cocked and locked," means a round is in the chamber, the hammer is cocked, and the manual thumb safety on the side of the frame is applied.

    Condition 2 - A round is in the chamber and the hammer is down.

    Condition 3 - The chamber is empty and hammer is down with a charged magazine in the gun.

    Condition 4 - The chamber is empty, hammer is down and no magazine is in the gun.

    This mainly applies to 1911 style guns. Glocks, Springfield XD's, etc. tend to fall somewhere outside of those descriptions
