Good article. Until recently I carried all my 1911s ( I only very occasionally carry one of them) with the hammer down on the loaded chamber. Some of the guys here changed my mind. If I was to carry one now it would be cocked and locked. And I never slam a slide down when unloading regardless of the gun.

Now more reasons too not buy a 1911! The grip safety on the xdm is bad enough it makes me almost want too tape/band it? I did type, "Almost"! I do better with the 10 than with the 40 when it comes too the grip safety disengagement! Not sure why, maybe just hold it different than the lower power of the 40? The xdm40 is my oldest son's favorite!

When I was in the Army a guy pulled a 5" lock blade LB5 Schrade Bear Claw Knife on me rather than shoot him I slapped him with my GI Issue 1911 .45 in the side of the head so hard the slide release came out of the pistol and the 1911 fell apart in my hand thank God the smack knocked the guy cold and I didn't have to kill the guy. I was his escort for his court-martial and was escorting him back for his sentence for AWOL & Desertion the MP's turned him over to me I assumed they had searched him! He had to get 10 stitches for his injuries. And my Commander wanted me to press charges on him and I said we would have to keep him around another few weeks it wouldn't be worth it, he was sentenced to 3 years at the USDB at Ft Leavenworth. Never use the 1911 .45 as a club was my lesson learned! I bet that guy never forgotten me.
