    Just think how dangerous it would be if they allowed drawing from a holster and FA on the rifle line?

    If you go, bring a buddy who knows how to apply a tourniquet and basic first aid.
    I'm curious what you find dangerous about the inspections at the check in station. All muzzles should be pointed in a safe direction.

    As for carrying a 1911 with the safety off in a Fobus Holster, . . . , I wonder how you even made that observation, unless it was an ambi safety.
    Even in that case, it is no more unsafe than carrying a Glock with the safety off and a round in the chamber.
    The holster was covering the trigger. Perfectly safe.

    Iíve been swept a few times waiting to get signed in there.

    I did not mention anything about a 1911 being carried in a fobus holster. I was referring to being able to draw from the holster on the line. If that was allowed there Iím sure there would be holes in places that there shouldnít be.
    I really don't care.

    Remember kids, you might be in the clique right now, but it never lasts forever.

    I have been shooting at HI for 3 decades and haven’t had or seen any issues regarding safety. Most people look after the young or inexperienced shooter they bring. RO’s help as well. IMO they can be over helpful with their advice and critiques of your personal shooting form or practices. But all it takes is a simple *thank you, but I got this*.

    I’ve heard bashing of this place and the RO’s for a long time and feel it’s unwarranted. They want everyone to be safe! They may use less than polite manners to do such, but swallow your pride and admit if you were being stupid or complacent. They’re just doing their job.

    And what’s the deal with people complaining about others banging the steel, mag dumps, or loud compensators? I’ve been there trying to get an accurate group and pulled a shot due to the .338 Lapua being touched off next to me. I don’t bitch, call the guy an asshole, or get up and leave while making a scene. Just load up 5 more rounds and try again. Maybe wait till the other shooter is reloading or not shooting for whatever reason.
    I’ve also been the guy with multiple very loud guns mag dumping and banging steel while the guy next to me is sighting in 10 different scoped rifles.

    The issue is the entitled shooters who feel everyone on the range has to cater to their version of the passion we all enjoy.

    Left handed...

    The difference between a Glock and a 1911 with no safety is that the Glock is not under spring tension and capable of firing without pulling the trigger.

    I would prefer if the ROís were pricks.

    I want the ROís paying attention to the poor gun handling by the other shooters and addressing it.

    This 1911 w/o safety and a Glock comparison is a joke right?

    Sure it is. We all know that pistols go off by themselves all the time, right.

    Just to be sure, I put a 1911 on my dresser last night, with a round in the chamber, hammer back, and safety disengaged. When I woke up, my two cats, the neighbor, and my pickup truck had all been shot.
    No more Wilson 10 round magazines for THAT pistol.

    Seriously. Keep your booger hook off the bang switch and you'll be just fine. If the holster is covering the trigger, then that 1911 is no more a threat than a Glock.
