Mus, if memory serves me correctly (I'm too tired right now to go down into the safe and look at the factorey instructions), Colt doesn't recommend cocked and locked carry either. Yes, I would say the factory is lawyerproofing or "stupidproofing" JMB's original design. A shame, isn't it? But we know better.

The Browning Hi-Power manual (for the current Mark III) does state that a Condition Two carry is okay. However, this feat requires lowering the hammer on a chambered round. I don't think so. Go cocked and locked.

The owner's manual for my FEG advocates half-cock with safety on. Obviously written by a paranoid attorney. I keep mine cocked and locked.

thanks for the responses. yeah i figured it was just a buncha bs. just making sure there wasnt some design difference i was unaware of that actually made it less safe to carry cocked and locked.
