Not my cup of tea but at least it's not dumb like lowering the hammer on a chambered round.
I generally agree about condition 2, but decocking is not as bad as you claim because one can use the same protocol as for decocking revolvers.

With revolvers, the weak thumb is placed in front of the hammer, the strong thumb is on the hammer and as soon as the sear releases, the trigger is released too, so there is the weak thumb AND the internal safety that both prevent revolver from firing.

1911 has a half-cock that cannot be passed if trigger is released and the gun cannot fire from the half-cock even if the sear broke, so the "thumb in front of hammer" is a safe way to decock.

On the other hand, I completely agree that it's an unnecessary step and that 1911 is intended to be carried in condition 1 (as a side issue, the half-cock is one of the important features that makes "condition 1 carry" of a 1911 safe.)

I love that old Model 28 revolver. I just put it in the holster for the pic though. There's a snap on it I need to fix.

It doesn't matter - other than to the tighty-whitey, by-the-book," no jaywalking crowd, who'd rather follow the rules and take whatever some gun-toting cretin does to them or to their families than lose their 2A rights in this state. Many are here on this site. Some "otherwise" law-abiding citizens, however, value their lives more than restrictive laws, and take whatever steps are necessary to ensure their safety - and that of their kids/wives, etc., and will therefore carry without a CCW. I started carrying back as teen, after I was held up at gunpoint, twice. Once I separated from the Corps I began carrying again - everywhere, before CCW was even a possibility in most of this state.

What's up with that guy's question from CUBA anyway?

There was another identical post today that I received a notification for that got deleted. User doesn't appear to exist. Same question and had a weird link in it:

huda.siahaan has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled -
Show me your holstered pistol! - in the California handguns forum of
Calguns.net.

This thread is located at:

I walked into a local gun store that I have done business with in the past and spotted it sitting on the desk behind the counter. I had to talk the owner into letting me look at it because he was planning on keeping it for his own collection.

I kept looking at it trying to talk myself out of getting it, but when would I ever see another one as complete as this one?

Fifteen minutes later I walked out with it quite a bit poorer but I have zero regrets.

In short, his question was a legitimate one. The 1911 doesn't have a decocker but can be manually decocked even if it is not recommended by many. I don't have a 1911, but can't a magazine be inserted with the slide forwarded and the hammer down? The guy may not even have been asking about how it is carried, but could have wondered if you leave it sitting around in a holster cocked and locked.

I almost forgot this one. One of my West German P226's in a holster I got off of ebay for ten bucks including shipping. I don't know who made it, but I like the heck out of it and it is my EDC in the winter.

Carrying your own firearm concealed without a permit is a misdemeanor in California.

We apparently have a dramatically different definition of what "safe" is.

And let's assume that one is able to lower the trigger without discharging the weapon. Now you've got the hammer down on top of a live round. What happens if the weapon is dropped?
