Yeah, I wasn't intending it to sound like manual safeties are bad for everyone (in fact, I suggest first-time shooters use a gun with a safety so they can deliberately ensure nothing happens unintentionally). I was hoping I could throw enough "personally"s and "in my opinion"s in there to show this.
I just prefer DA/SA with a decocker at most as that's what I've use the most and what I feel most comfortable with.
Sure I could get some more training on the 1911 and similar designs and even come to like them. But currently, I have no real need as there's plenty of options that fit my current preferences out there.
But to those who enjoy the 1911? By all means.
That is one thing I do so enjoy about the firearms world: so much variety!
