At the risk of adding to the dog pile, this is not recommended for personal defense or any other reason with a traditional single action like a 1911 or BHP. As already mentioned, it's unnecessarily risky to put it into this state and it's no safer than cocked&locked if dropped, etc. When you need to put it into Condition 0 to shoot, there's a risk of ND when thumbing the hammer. Even worse, it's slower than racking the slide from Condition 3 for most shooters, because we have thousands (if not millions) of repetitions racking the slide with various handguns. Working the slide is also a gross motor skill, so it degrades less under stress.
