    Holy SMooooooooks!
    I so much enjoy my 1911, but I have trained so long with guns without a safety that I'm afraid I might forget to take it off if it was needed!!

    Too many times I've forgotten to take the safety off when training.

    Oh Well, I still I love it.

    I thought the same thing.
    But it's easy to swipe the safety as a draw.
    It's getting to feel real natural to me now.
    I'm feeling like I'll be just fine

    Bought mine new 30 years ago - ran about 3 or 4 magazines through it, then put it in the safe where it's sat ever since except for the occasional wipedown. I have a bad habit of doing that, but one of my grandkids will probably appreciate that it's almost new.



    Am thinking of a real 1911 like a Springfield Armory Milspec stainless - gotta replace the three that I gave away.

    My training was just the opposite. It's natural for me to swipe off the safety whether the pistol has one or not. Of course, my early training was with 1911's and Browning HP's. My Kahr's are the only pistols I ever carry w/o a manual safety.

    The key word here I think is Natural. I use the thumb safety as a thumb rest. Basically if I tense up I almost without thought push it down. It's in a perfect spot, easy to reach, even with the minimalist GI thumb safeties.

    I too tend to sweep the safety weather it's there or not.
