Iggy is right. Get accustomed to it that way, then carry cocked and locked in a holster that covers the trigger.As always, make sure the gun is unloaded and then try this.
Cock the hammer and engage the thumb safety.
Grip the gun in a manner so that the grip safety is not disengaged. Try to pull the trigger.. It won't fire.
Grip the gun properly so that the grips safety is squeezed in , but don't disengage the thumb safety. Try to pull the trigger. It won't fire.
Grip the gun properly, disengage the thumb safety but don't touch the trigger. It won't fire.
It takes 3 distinctive actions plus engaging the brain to make a 1911 fire.
Try this exercise several times, and see if you don't learn to trust the gun.
I just say "It wouldn't be much use if it wasn't".:scratch:I always get a kick out of people when they say DO YOU KNOW YOUR GUN IS COCKED? What are you doing? They walk away from you like you have the plague. Funny stuff.
