I've wondered about this for a while now. What it the point of the half-cock on a 1911? And how can you carry in condition 2?
Was this a carry over from revolvers at the insistence of some Army brass?
Because I can't think of a way to safely lower the hammer on a chambered round. Yeah, it probably won't go off, and I can point the muzzle in a safe direction, but what about my poor thumb if it does?
