There might be a few here who haven't heard this old story:

The Texas Rangers have a very long tradition as a law enforcement agency and the 1911 pistol has been a big part of that. The 1911 is, even today, approved for carry and considered a trademark of the Rangers. As the old (true or not) story goes, a Ranger on the street was approached by a lady who pointed to the cocked-and-locked 1911 pistol in his holster and asked, "Isn't that dangerous?"

The Ranger replied, "Maam, I wouldn't carry the son-of-a-bitch if it wasn't dangerous!"
