    Four decades, no accidents of this kind.
    I mix it up myself. If I think there will be kids around who could somehow get to my weapon I dechamber, or if I have a "feeling" I will do so. My typical carry is racked and ready though.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I carry with all five chambers loaded.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I think you'll really like the range time. Did you decide on a new firearm, or are you sticking with the 38?

    Exactly. It's just one more step to prevent accidental fire.

    And if there's a significant likelihood that you're about to be ambushed, then I agree. If, however, you're the average guy in the average side of the average town, then that's exceptionally unlikely, so it's not worth the risk of accidentally killing someone.

    I guess the question is related to your reason for carrying one. Is it just in case you see something happening and want to be able to act? If so, you have plenty of time to rack the slide if needed. If it's because your job or location invite danger, and you have a genuine (and sane) concern of ambush, then I would agree. I guess it's risk versus reward. What is the actual danger you're facing in your day compared to the -- albeit slightly -- increased chance of your accidentally shooting someone.

    I mean, if you really have a need to have a round chamber at all times, do you also wear a vest at all times? If the risk of an armed attack is high enough to warrant an increased risk to those around you, then isn't it also high enough to warrant body armour?

    I was mugged in a very "safe" area in a somewhat rural college town. while the nearby city had some street crime, this area was safe. The only reason why I was packing was I had planned on doing some shooting with a cop friend but the county range was closed. Of course, that was also good luck for the muggers. If I had not had the gun I would have had to cut the two mopes until they stopped beating on me. and that means both of them probably would have been died. Instead, one got hit, went straight down, and the other gave up right away. The one who was shot lucked out since there was a paramedic unit nearby and I immediately called the emergency dispatch.

    Why is it that so many liberals are opposed to self defense? iS it

    1) because they hate the responsibility of accepting the risk of self defense

    2) are they cowards

    3) or do they have a sense of self guilt and feel wrong to hurt a criminal

    I just don't get this nonsense

    I can't repeat this enough, criminals don't make appointments.

    I've been cut before, wasn't armed myself. I've been attacked before, fortunately I'm in good enough shape that I can handle myself, but that's not always guaranteed. The firearm I own is yet another preventative item I have.

    Don't get silly here, vests are expensive and aren't practical.

    what just drives me batty is the dishonesty we often see on these boards. People who know nothing about the use of arms, self defense etc pretend that what we do is wrong based upon ignorant mindsets but in reality what we are dealing with is people who oppose others being able to defend themselves.

    Its like the crap on the Garand imports. Those defending Obama's asshole move can never post a logical argument for his actions so they question why people "want or need" old rifles or claim those rifles aren't the best for camp Perry etc

    the oblique attacks on gun ownership are common because gun haters are afraid to just come out and say what they really believe-they want to disarm people they don't agree with

    I think that is the common thread with most of us, I don't have any kids but could end up a stepfather if things go well at sometime in the future with a certain lady in my life, I don't care about myself so much but if anyone threatened either of them they will have to take me out first, and I plan to make that a chore for them.

    Looks like it more every time. With the Garand issue I think Obama just had something he figured he actually "could legally do" so he did it out of spite, his followers for whatever reason think it's not okay to question the idiot.

    Yeah the petulant loser was mad that he couldn't ban scary guns to soothe the bloodlust of people like finetard or the brady thugs so he did this just to piss on gun collectors and Classic Match shooters. Spite is his main motive=most liberal policies are about punishing people for not buying into their pernicious marxist nastiness.
