This is the proper recipe for preparing to carry C1.
Unfortunately, MOST people who carry C1 don't follow this prescription beyond the "good holster". Therein lies the danger of advise given here on a wholesale basis that C1 is the only intelligent way to carry because of tactical advantages.
C1 is fine for those who adequately prepare and stay 'tuned up' with continuous practice. I'm not one of those practitioners, and I readily admit it. That's why I'll carry my Glocks C3 until I find a suitable replacement with a manual safety.
