Page 6: Safe Carrying Condition: Never carry this pistol cocked, loaded and ready to fire as this practice could easily result in an unintentio...

Re: LEO right to search with CHL

I've also heard that a LEO can tell just by looking at you if you're carrying or not. :shock: It takes a lot of experience for a law enforcement officer to be able to tell if you are armed simply by looking at you. It also has a lot to do with how you are carrying. I patrolled with a guy that was g...

Re: To Chamber or not to Chamber?

Quick answer is "Why would you ever need a seat belt?"
Best response so far! :clapping:
I agree :iagree:. Best response I have seen. However if they don't know by now, they will never understand.

Re: To Chamber or not to Chamber?

To skiprr I appreciate your welcome and your thanks. You are the only person to ever have thanked me for my LEO service. In my original post I stated what feels right for me and that I place safety paramount. I do not believe I have ever criticized anyone for the way they carry. As long as one carri...

Re: To Chamber or not to Chamber?

dicion: who makes your 1911s? The one on the left looks like my Kimber Pro CDP. The one on the right looks like a sweet carry.

As you can tell, I haven’t been posting on this forum very long. I just found it. How do you post pictures?

Re: To Chamber or not to Chamber?

To dicion: I have had my 1911 for over a year. I leave it with a full clip, one in the chamber and on half cock all the time. I check it on a regular basis and have seen no sign of it falling from half cock. Should it ever develop that problem I will find out about it with the chamber empty or with ...

Re: To Chamber or not to Chamber?

This is my first post on this forum. I have been reading other posts and this seems to be a good source of information for CHL holders. I have a big problem with carrying “cocked and locked”. I carry a Kimber Pro CDP with one in the chamber and the hammer at “half cock”. You can pull the trigger all...
