I'm don't quite feel that comfortable with 1911 in cocked and locked position so I was entertaining the idea of a holster with a thumbreak. The thumbreak will make drawing slower but will it help safety? What are your opinions on this subject? Thanks.

I don't think thumb breaks are a bad idea. They can be a help in some situations (expecially if you are very active). However I don't think the safety of the weapon should decide. If you are uncomfortable with carring the 1911 cocked and locked, maybe you should look into something else. I carry one myself, but am the first to admit it is not for everyone. Hope this helps.
