This Is Just *So* Wrong!

Just Say No!!

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times:

If John Moses Browning (PBUH) had intended the Model 1911 to be fired in double-action mode, he would have DESIGNED IT THAT WAY!!!

OK, I understand that some PDs and other agencies do not allow for cocked & locked carry, and as such cannot use the 1911 style as a duty weapon.  Fine. There's plenty of perfectly good autoloaders out there with a DA trigger and decocking levers.

Stop fucking with the 1911 to try and make it a DA pistol!!

Look at this foul abomination!

(BTW, this is an official Colt product, called the "1991DAO")

No thumb safety, no grip safety, no hammer, an extra acre of grip panel over the missing bits...
