Hello all. I have heard many a 1911 user say to carry their 1911 in Condition 1. Is there a big advantage to carrying a 1911 with the hammer cocked and safety on vs. hammer uncocked (Condition 2)? Since a vast majority of 1911s are SAO I see no advantage. I had a 1911 guy tell me that he carries his 1911 in Condition 1 because it is the best way. I figure if you draw your 1911 in Condition 1 then you will need to flip the safety off with your thumb. If you draw your 1911 in Condition 2 then you will use your thumb to cock the hammer back. Both methods require your thumb to actuate something on the pistol. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.
