I'm sure with enough training that can be overcome, but that reason is why i would not carry a 1911 - the safety.
I'm just not a fan of it.
I do like mine and aside from a little bit heavy they could be a fine carry weapon, but not for me.
I'm now (with the hope of actually being able to carry soon) looking seriously at CCW and am leaning toward:
Skky (9mm though only I think)
Sig - there is a new one coming out I think
