    Yikes.

    But I'm with you Billy, I love the vintage 1911's. My dad had 3 when he passed but I had to sell them all for the estate or I'd have kept a nice one for myself.

    Hard to tell 100%, but it doesn't look like the hammers are cocked.

    Default In the past, trigger discipline wasn't even taught

    I went through basic with superb Infantry cadre at Ft Ord in 1965. Nobody ever mentioned trigger discipline. In Vietnam these things were worked out on a one on one basis: "If I see that barrel pointed at me one more time, I'll shove it up your ass!" There is a certain risk involved with taking some guy out of New York who never even fired any gun in his life and handing him an M16. Some guys get it, others never do. I would imagine today that this is a big issue.

    A death grip like this will probably end badly...

    Back in those days when Soldiers were allowed to walk around post armed. This wouldn't fly these days ..... As ya'all know. Don't think that Major Nidal M. Hasan would have been too successful "taking out" Soldiers and civilian personnel at the SRP Site had the Fort Hood incident occurred back in the day (as in when this photo was taken) when everyone was "armed and dangerous". :-) Great photo.
