"...better yet, it's a SA 1911 to boot..." [PT-92]
Not a problem, the 1911 has a rigid heavy-duty thumb safety and a grip safety 'to boot.'

Front pocket carry has one real practical drawback ...its slow on the draw, and in an ambush, can be a killer.
A CCW should be carried so that it can be out and smokin in a half-second (or less).
