Hey, HE's probably right. HE must have FUBAR'd the safety and had problems fighting with a 1911. Sure hope no one got hurt on HIS watch.The instructor then proceeded to tell the class that 1911s, and all other firearms with external safeties, are dangerous to the user because you will forget to take the safety off if you get in a gun fight. That's why all PD's don’t allow them any more...too many cops screwing up and getting shot. He also told the class, while looking at me, that even if you can make small groups it doesn’t mean you can shoot tactically. I have never rolled my eyes so hard before.
Thank you for your service DR505.
