The East Texas State ring.  Now Texas A&M Commerce since 1991.

Commerce Texas is the little town where they are.

Very nice Dave. The gun is definitely hot.

Are you protecting your ring or your keys?

Walther .380?

With the hammer cocked?

4. Dave in Texas - May 22, 2006

yeah Bart.

No round in the chamber, no magazine loaded.

And you are wise with the firearms, to know you can’t carry a PPK/s safely in Condition One.

Darn shame, cause it’s a great weapon to carry concealed.

I’m really a novice with firearms. After I wrote that comment, I remembered being told that some people prefer chamber a round, cock the hammer, and put on the safety.

Bart, that is best carried out with a 1911a1 .45, it is designed to carry in that state (called condition 1, cocked locked and ready to rock).

The thumb safety is the key to that. Got to knock it down to shoot.

A good holster will cover the hammer so you can safely carry like that.

I’ll post a pic of one..

Aaah, so that’s what you meant by condition one.

You can’t do that with your Walther?

I have a Sig. It doesn’t have a saftey, which I like. That thing is ready to go at anytime.

A Walther cannot be carried safely in condition one.

The decocking mechanics are reliable, but if you drop it with a round in the chamber you will not be happy.

I know didley squat about Sigs, cept their reputation as great firearms… teach me.

9. Brass - May 22, 2006

My H&K USP .45 compact was designed to be carried condition one as well. The only problem is that the same safety, if pushed further down, decocks the weapon. Not something you want to have happen when you need to rock. Training, training, and some more training is the only way to overcome this deficiency.
