Condition 3 is a dangerous way to carry. You will never get the drop on anyone without one in the chamber. Condition 3 is for home shotgun defense and long gun transportation IMHO

How does one conclude condition 3 by observation?

Condition 3 – The chamber is empty and hammer is down with a charged magazine in the gun.

Note that many military services are taught this method.

IMHO, a 1911 should be carried at a minimum of condition 1, were it not for potential legal ramifications, I likely would carry in condition 0. I find the manual safety to be unnecessarily redundant.

Sorry all. Was typing the OP amidst some minor household chaos last night.

I did goof, and did intend to write Condition 1.

Again, apologies to all.

What happens if I don't accept your apology and decide to continue being highly offended? Hmmmm?
