Now that I have a conceal carry licence I have some questions! This would be for the CC people

 

Carry on you or in something like a bag or backpack?

Does how you dress change how you carry? Like do you have a summer carry and a winter one?

the conceal carry instructor told me to not have the safety on and keep the thingie cocked. That sounds kind of unsafe, is that good advice?

Look up “Condition 1”

On your handgun you need to keep the safety on when you’re carrying it cocked.

It's a Commander-sized 1911?

Not exactly ideal for concealed carry IMHO.

This is going to have a terrible conclusion...

Jay, I think you are sincere, so I will answer your questions sincerely... but honestly, you need to get your hands on a book and read it.

Carry your gun on your person in a holster. Considering the size and weight of your gun, I suggest you consider getting a shoulder holster. Do not carry your gun off person. You will not have access to it when you need it, and the chance you leave it somewhere... in the bathroom, on a counter somewhere, in your car... goes up substantially.

Use the safety on your gun. If you are going to carry your gun cocked (and you should) it needs to be locked... otherwise you will accidentally shoot yourself or someone else.  1911's necessitate the use of the safety, and the fact your gun guy told you otherwise is everything you need to know to go get yourself a new gun guy.

"keep the thingie cocked" and put it the front of your waist band

What could go wrong?

Always leave one out of the chamber. Then when you take it out you can rack the slide and look badass. Shows everyone you mean business. Goodluck out there bro

To carry a 1911 clocked, and without the safety on sounds stupid and dangerous to me. I think when training* your draw from concealment, you're supposed to train flipping off the safety. Can people with more knowledge than me please chime in.

 

 

 

 

* Note, this training needs to be dry-fire training with no live ammo in the room with you. Never train with live ammo unless at the range and you know what you're doing and can do it safely. Don't be one of those guys who puts holes in their walls because they weren't planning to pull the trigger while training, but accidentally did
