    Do you have a round chambered while carrying?


    I saw a thread about keeping a gun loaded at home for self defense whether you would keep a round chambered or not. If i carry i personally do not have a round chambered but i do realizing that extra second to chamber could be bad if you have a gun pointed at you. What do you guys do?

    All my weapons that are loaded, have a round in the chamber with the exception of my Remington 870 Shotgun. I was informed by a good friend that they have been known to discharge when dropped on the stock.

    You should carry how you feel comfortable. The time it takes you to rack the slide could make the difference. One of the main points of a GLOCK is that there are no external safeties and switches, etc to manipulate when you need it. Draw the weapon, identify target, point and pull the trigger. Racking the slide adds an additional step in the mix. If you do decide that this is the way you want to continue carrying, you should practice constantly on drawing the weapon, racking the slide and then getting on target. Of course, practice with an EMPTY WEAPON!!! Remove the mag so the slide will drop free while practicing.

    Having a CCW without a round in the chamber could be likened to having a condom in the glove-box while having foreplay on the beach... Good idea at the time but utterly useless...

    A gun without a round in the chamber is nothing but a paperweight...

    A cocked n locked 1911 or loaded G19 - I will add a G30 into the rotation this week. Like TheLaw stated - carry as you are comfortable. A good belt and rig will add confidence in your daily walk with your weapon.
