If I payed that much money for a pistol, I'd take it out every night and smile too. I have tried carrying my 1911 (Colt) once and while practicing drawing it, the hammer got caught on my shirt tail. As much as I love my Colt, as accurate and reliable as it is, I don't carry it any more. I will either carry the Glock 36 with the +1 extended mag, or my XD-45 with 13+1. Most people who carry 1911 train exclusively with it so they won't forget to thumb the safety or get their shirt tail caught on the hammer.
