Exactly. Maybe we should just allow that Cooper's 1911 'conditions' or 'states of readiness' are valid for 1911's but not glocks (or hammerless revolvers, or HK P7's, or ruger P89's, or VP70's, etc) since the manual(s) of arms is so different between them. I'd give the nod to semantic tolerance and change the wording of "hammer down" to "uncocked"; which glocks (and DAO semiautos, hammerless revolvers, etc) inherently are unless you're in the process of pulling the trigger. And if we're being literal, they can't be in ANY of those conditions, for that matter. Chamber-loaded on a glock (imo) "kind of" equates to condition two because it's uncocked; but it also "kind of" equates to condition zero because it's ready to fire with only a trigger pull, but that can also be said of the very different Beretta 92D and the even-more-different S&W centennial revolver. Progress and technological advances mandate changes in usage. Personally I carry mine chamber-loaded, but to each his own. When I first started carrying a mini-1911 with no grip safety (detonics in the 80's), I actually carried it as a backup for several weeks; still carrying my primary gun in the meantime until I got to the point of trusting the new one. I carried it cocked & locked with an empty chamber for those weeks, to see if it ever would have an AD/ND, since I'd never used one without grip safety before. It never failed, so I finally switched to it and carried it normal condition one, and all was good. So I won't give people too much grief if they want to 'ease into' the ccw thing, if that's what gets them doing it calmly and confidently. Again, to each his own.
