what are the weapons conditions

Can anyone tell me the four weapons conditions for the m1911 pistol ? Is it the same as the m9 pistol.

The conditions I've seen associated with 1911s (don't know how they would compare to an M9, sorry) are:

Condition 3: Hammer down on empty chamber
Condition 2: Hammer down on loaded chamber (not recommended)
Condition 1: Hammer cocked, thumb safety engaged, chamber loaded ("cocked & locked")

some will also refer to Condition 0, which is hammer cocked, thumb safety off, chamber loaded, ready to fire

Hope this helps.

Condition 3 also refers to a loaded magazine being in place in the pistol. Some also add a condition 4, which is like C3 (for chamber and hammer status), but with no magazine in place.
