Very good; when challenged, you found one of Ayoob's exceptions regarding guns that are not "drop safe."

Nevertheless, I suspect that a lot of 1911's without firing pin locks are carried with a round in the chamber, regardless of Ayoob's opinion.

Ayoob's other exception is carrying a gun without an appropriate holster (Guns Magazine, February 2001).
