    IO heard a cat say once when you holster or un holster a 1911 you should grip it so you don't depress the grip safety, lessing the chance of shooting your self. To me that seems paranoid, you keep your finger off teh trigger you won't shoot your self:supergrin:

    Its hard to grab it properly without depressing the grip safety. To me, you need a firm grip on your handgun while drawing it.
     


  3. Yup sounds paranoid to me, when I holster or unholster I want a strong grip, and the best safety is your brain :)

    And juggling the gun to get a proper grip during the draw is "safer"? Check please.

    Not sure how you'd do that and really have a grip that let you control the gun.

  11. Doesn't sound paranoid....sounds uneducated in the way of the 1911.

    We need a picture of "The most interesting man in the world"

    Captioned,

    "I don't always say stupid things about firearms

    but when I do

    I say it about the 1911"

    I like this simple, 3-step process:

    1) Use a firm grip for better control of the pistol.
    2) Keep finger off trigger.
    3) Point barrel somewhere other than "at self."
