In The Classroom–Firing Pins and Safeties

with AGI Instructor John Bush

In this video John, who we normally see in the War Room discussion military, talks about safeties and firing pins. When is it OK to carry a pistol with a round in the chamber and the hammer down?

If you carry a pistol for self defense this is good knowledge to have to make sure you don’t get an accidental discharge if you drop your weapon.

  1. So why the big ‘issues’ being made about the 1911 not being drop safe and not to carry it unless cocked and locked? It certainly has an inertia firing pin.
