Re: Condition two debate

Note, though, that this is pretty much exclusive to single-action pistols with frame-mounted safeties, such as 1911-style autos and Hi-Powers.

Double-action/single-action with the frame-mounted safety are also included, such as Taurus pistols and CZ-style pistols. With their frame-mounted thumb safeties, they can be carried "cocked & locked", as with the 1911s. There are other pistols with a similar lockwork/safety setup, which I'm sure will be mentioned.

Re: Condition two debate

Sorry, but not knowing better I always thought condition two was loaded, cocked and locked.
Explanation is good. Now I know.

Re: Condition two debate

I once had a dictionary of firearms terminology, and it was almost as thick as a regular dictionary. I don't know if there is any firearms term that doesn't have multiple meanings; "Gun talk" is almost a language of its own.

I'm pretty sure I have that on my shelf. Possibly published by Stoeger in the late '60s or '70s? I recall that last time I looked at it--a decade or more ago--there were a lot of terms of current usage that weren't in it.

Sadly, I forget. I had it in the early '70s; I got it through the "Outdoor Life Book Club". Even then, the different definitions and applications of words & terms was bewildering...

Re: Condition two debate

I don't know what you'd call it, but I "sort of" use a condition two. When I do combat drills with my only DA auto or one of my DA revolvers, I cock the hammer as I'm coming on target, two handed. Works alot better for me than trying to hit something DA at eye level and two handed. E
