I have seen people who carried 1911's back during military service and to this day still carry and train regularly with a 1911 at the range under no stress try to pull the trigger and realize the forgot to flip the safety off. Under no stress is becomes immediately obvious what happened, when in extreme danger; cops, soldiers, etc. have been known to panic and keep trying to pull the trigger because simple, obvious tasks are not so simple or obvious during the stress of a gun fight.
