In the scene where there was an argument between the kids and the Cobras, Gordie fired his 1911 .45 caliber pistol as a warning shot. In the succeeding scene, he aimed his gun at "Ace" and cocked the weapon. Unlike a revolver, a 1911 .45 pistol would always have its hammer cocked after every shot (as its slide will push the hammer to open or 'cocked' position). Gordie most likely would not have decocked the pistol only to cock it again when he pointed it at "Ace".
