 User feedback and user questions

Last Name: E


What is the best way to carry a M1911A1 if you’re left handed? Cocked and locked would be prefered but the safety is exposed to being pushed to the off position. I don’t have an ambi safety and even then the safety (for right handers is exposed). I carry mine at half-cock and unlocked. I figure it’s only one-half cock to place it in action. Many say this is the least preferred. what is the best way for a leftie to carry?

    Okay, so in response to the listener question, I am left handed and will sometimes carry my 1911. I have never had the problem of the safety flicking off on it’s own. Even if it did flick off, I have never had the hammer drop until I pulled the trigger. The best thing you can do is get the ambi safety. Wilson Combat makes one of the better ones in my opinion. They will require a bit of fitting to your specific gun. You can watch youtube videos on how to do this, or find a competent gunsmith to do the work. 
    Before I got the ambi safety, I would leave the gun cocked and and the safety off. However, I practiced bringing the gun out of the holster in that condition tons before I ever felt comfortable having live rounds in the gun. The biggest issue here is training. Being a left handed person, I realize there is very little in the gun world that is built with us in mind. Knowing that, I tend to shy away from hand guns built just for left handed people. I think they have a tendency to create additional issues not originally intended. (The Gen 4 Glocks are a good example. You can switch the magazine release, but then you are stuck using Generation 4 magazines) Because of this, I only have one ‘left handed’ gun, (Ruger Gunsight Scout)
    Speaking generally, I think left handed shooters are much more adaptable then right handed shooters because of necessity. I grew up in the 90’s and had to learn how to operate a gun backwards to the common way of thought. As such, I release the magazine with my middle left finger, and drop the slide with my left index finger. Using this method in IDPA, I can get the gun back up just as fast as the right handed shooters.
