You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get
yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days
is to go about repeating the very phrases which our
founding fathers used in the struggle for independence.

People always say you can cycle the slide with one hand if you do not have a FLGR but that isn't true. You can only retract the slide a short distance until your finger hits the dust cover. I don't know about any one else's 1911's but my slides have to go way past the dust cover to chamber a round. The only time I use the one hand method is to verify the gun is empty.

Some of my 1911's have FLGR's and a couple don't. Since they all function the way they are, they are going to stay that way.
