    Stuff happens. I wouldnt worry about it. Sometimes it is hard to get across what your brain is thinking the way you are thinking and then type it. I think.:D

    Even if you're not a natural lefty, you could become one if someone disables your right hand in a fight. IMO, ambi safeties are just another form of insurance.

    John,

    that may very well happen; I can tell you for sure an ambi safety will bite your right index finger when you rack the slide. Not to mention the fact that they can fall apart during use.

    I hate 'em.:D But that's the beauty of 1911s; they are personal guns.

    Techoca,

    Just grabbed my Kimber to see what you were talking about. I agree, it is possible to ding your finger on the safety but I don't grip the slide that way.

    I guess somewhere along the line I was taught to keep my finger tips on the cocking serrations and it naturally keeps them out of harms way.

    However now that you put that idea in my head, I'll probably screw up the next time I'm at the range and put a crease in my index finger. :D
