In what condition do you carry your 1911s, 1, 2 or 3? If you keep it in the house do you keep it in a different condition? Example, do you carry it cocked and locked, but leave it in the nightstand with an empty chamber? I use condition 3 and 1. If the hammer is cocked it is assumed to have a round in the chamber and has the safety on. If the hammer is down it is assumed that it has an empty chamber. I always check before handling the gun for dry fire practice, ect. But if I were to need the gun quickly for a SD situation I would rack the slide to ensure I had a round in the chamber. The worst that can happen is that I would start out with a 6 shot semiauto instead of a 7 shot semiauto. Your thoughts.
