That seems like a good system. My system is to be always condition 1. The only time it's not is when it is dis-assembled for cleaning. As soon as it's clean, chambered again and back in the holster. My 1911 has been condition 1 for 99.2% of the time since it was bought new in 1984 with no probs with the spring and never had a ND with it.
