New to Kimber New to 1911

Always carried Glocks so 1911 virgin here. Please instruct correct way to conceal carry Master Carry Pro. So far my understanding is with chambered round, cocked, safety on, any input would be appreciated

Welcome from the Mountain State. This is a good place for Kimber/1911 information and conversation. You are correct ... if you are carrying a 1911 for self defense you carry in Condition 1 or cocked and locked. Enjoy your new gun, shoot safely and practice, practice, practice.

Coming from Glock to Con 1 is going to feel pretty scary at first. BUT this is the way to carry. It's just different platform.

I was the opposite! Carrying a chambered Glock was unnerving, to me. I much prefer SAO with a safety.

Welcome!

PaulWVa’s answer is what you’ll hear from almost everyone around here. If it makes you feel better cock and lock an empty gun and carry it in your holster around the house and you will see the hammer isn’t going to drop.

1911 - Cocked and locked - safe.

Glock 17/19 Cocked with no lock - not safe IMO. Not looking for an argument, just my opinion.

Condition #1, cocked and locked is the way the gun was designed to be carried.
