readiness

For those that are not familiar with the Jeff Cooper “Handgun conditions of readiness”

The 5 conditions are:

  • Condition 0 – A round is in the chamber, the hammer is cocked, and the safety is off.
  • Condition 1 – Also called “cocked and locked”, this means that a round is in the chamber, the hammer is cocked, and the manual thumb safety is on.
  • Condition 2 – A round is in the chamber, the hammer is uncocked.
  • Condition 3 – There is no round in the chamber, the hammer is uncocked but a fully loaded magazine is inserted in the mag well.
  • Condition 4 – The chamber is empty, the hammer is uncocked and there is no magazine inserted in the mag well
