    Maybe he unloads it when not carrying?

    Well, except that carrying a gun is really 24/7. In the house, outside the house, out and about. There is no reason to unload a carry gun, if you need to secure it while not under your immediate control, then store it hot in the holster in a secure lock box. Even then if you have to get to it in a situation at least it will be loaded. Otherwise precious time is wasted trying to reload it and get it hot. The other down side to load/unload is bullet setback. It's not, if but when, it will setback from repeated loading. 9mms/45acps not so much, but certainly 40S&W. This is a box I keep by the garage, $50. Otherwise my carry gun is under my immediate control, always.

    While I know it IS NOT recommended, every Glock I own (except two retirees), my AR's, and tactical shotguns are ALWAYS loaded ready to go including my daily carry piece (G26). I told my family that my guns are always loaded, so know this if something were to happen and I'm not around LOL.

    What good is a gun with no bullets?

    I knew it!!! You know what gave it away? "opinine" Only the Walter spells it incorrectly on purpose.....

    Definition of opine
    opined opining
    intransitive verb
    : to express opinions
    transitive verb
    : to state as an opinion

    ********* (WalterGA was last seen: Feb 24, 2005)

    How come this forum will not let you spell the word that rhymes with block and talk?

    I tried to correct the spelling, but had trouble with the edit function.
