I also have thoughts of not being safe carrying my Colt 1911 cocked and locked, however many people have said its the only way to carry a 1911. I have been thinking about a holster that has a strap between the hammer and the slide. What are your thoughts ?
I have a Galco FLETCH High Ride with that design but I use it infrequently, more as a dress up holster. It is an OWB holster. My usual holster is a Fobus paddle holster. The gun is a Sig Sauer 1911. The Galco is a nice holster but I wear overalls most of the time which necessitates the paddle design. I personally have no qualms about cocked and locked carry but I know many who do. I do find myself checking the safety fairly often.
