Morning LOL

BTW if you carry Condition 3, (Empty Chamber, loaded magazine), this is how you look to me.

My 1911 is cocked-and-locked

    Just finished watching this. Too funny! And I agree about condition three.

    Without a permit here in Utah, that’s the closest to loaded that you can get, so that’s how everybody carries until they get their permit.

    It totally worked! I decided to stop my attack just from the pink punisher T-Shirt!

    Weerdy, i’ll have you know spaghetti is painful when it hits the sinuses.

    Stop or I will compose a strongly worded letter to my congressman urging him to pass legislation taking more rights away from law-abiding gun owners.

    I have to say that I was inspired by this video. I now carry a copy of Concealed Carry Magazine with a gun review in it. Not on me, but I carry it in the car. OK, not a “car” but a minivan. With a Coexist sticker. Not the SCARY coexist sticker made from gun logos though – the other one.

    A cocked and locked 1911 is fine, but for those of us who carry DAO semi-autos…..well, why be slowed by some safety thingy? ; )

    (Of course, if you choose to shoot Snubbies from Hell, it WILL take some time to pick it up off the ground for your Second Shot. Just sayin’….)

      Condition 2 (or the various mechanical equivalents) is awesome so long as its in a gun designed to be carried as such.

      Of Course a Condition2 1911 is just as silly as a Condition 3 one. But any gun with a DA trigger is awesome for condition 2 carry.

  8. North says:

    So on a gun without a safety, one in the chamber is what? Or does it depend on the decocker? 1 or 2?

    Is is uncocked (decocked) and unlocked (no safety) as cool as cocked and locked?

    • Weerd Beard says:

      That’s where the weirdness sets in, as Col Cooper wrote the conditions SPECIFICALLY about the M1911, so there is no special condition for say the Beretta 92 with the safety on (Hammer down and gun on safe) And of course guns like Glocks or M&Ps are in-between the standard states of ready as the striker is partially cocked.

      I consider them “Condition 2” just because the trigger pull resembles a light double action pull of a revolver.

        Thank you.

        I was curious about the “conditions” that I’ve seen enumerated. I realized that my gun didn’t quite fit these conditions. So I thought that I would figure out how my gun _would_ fit in to these and then post about it.

        I never made the post. Apparently things do not fit right. Yhe conditions exclude some gun types. I imagine that what I could have done was to step into some new territory and redefine the conditions to suit a wider variety of gun designs. It might be thought of as a table with 5 or more conditions as rows and columns for gun design types. Then perhaps a big list of guns and what ‘type’ they are.

        But that would have been very presumptuous of me as I don’t consider myself an expert on the subject at all, but it would make a good post for someone who is. Perhaps define a new standard, or at least equate a lot of conditions. I’m not sure who would take up the challenge, but I would like to see it done.

        • Weerd Beard says:

          Not it! There are SO MANY different types of guns and so many different passive and active safety devices, as well as mechanics on how the gun can be carried and fired.

          Tho I got a moment, maybe I’ll drop a post.

          • North says:

            I had considered at the time posting something I knew was wrong – hoping that I would get a variety of correct answers…

            I even thought about calling out for comments on the GBBL, but nobody reads the GBBL for the articles, just the pretty links.

    Not implying any judgment about the advisability or hilarity of this technique . . . but if you want to transport a firearm on your person in Illinois, outside a case . . . . this is actually probably the only other legal way to do it.
