1911 grip safety

  1. What is purpose of 1911 grip safety?

    Handguns
    I like shooting 1911 type pistols and I understand the U.S. military told Browning to add the grip safety to all of the "new" pistols before entering service. I wish that they would get smart and do away with these annoying devices! What is the purpose of the grip safety?
