A local gunsmith recently advised me he refuses to sell new 1911s unless they have the Series 80 type plunger firing pin block safety device. I have 2 Les Baer 1911s which I have used for CCW carry in the cocked & locked mode. He claims this is unsafe without series 80 style firing pin blocker and that the original design without said series 80 feature was never designed to be carried safely in cocked and locked mode! I've just gotten very comfortable the last couple years with the 1911 design for carry as I have been shooting several versions extensively in IPSC and IDPA! Am I on safe ground here or hanging my ass out for a liability nightmare at some point?
