Photos: Cocked and Locked

Is it just me or does it seem almost all photos of 1911s are taken with the pistol cocked and locked? Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy looking at the photos and dreaming of each model fitting firmly in my hand. But I was just wondering if there was something special about 1911s being cocked and locked. Other firearms, not even revolvers with big 'ol hammers, don't usually have the hammer back for photos.

Meh, just a thought. What do you think?

I take it back. Kimber seems to take most of their photos with the hammer down. Maybe the other manufacturers are 'more aggressive' in their products.

Cocked and locked is how you carry a 1911.

That's how you know a 1911 is ready for business. Revolvers are DAO/SAO and are carried hammer down and ready for business.
