    No one should carry a gun position 1 except military, police, and someone actively expecting an impending assault. People walking around practicing lackadaisical gun safety habits is what causes accidents that are ultimately used as rationalization for gun bans. If gun owners aren't responsible and safe, it give people who oppose the 2nd Amendment more ammo, so to speak.

    that's just plain silly.

    If I am EXPECTING AN ASSAULT I will be behind cover with a SHOTGUN Or a rifle.

    I carry a pistol because you never know when an attack might come

    2.) doesn't matter where you live, ignoring common sense is always the wrong move, the topic is about "do you chamber"
    3.) me neither, ill probably never have to use my gun in self defense but since i have a gun the smart thing to do is to no how to use it and have it ready in its best operational stage. again TOPIC based

    Like i said your post was a total fail, next time simply ask a honest question and your learn something lol
    Okay, here's an honest question- do you live in Mogadishu? 'Cause, if you need to have a round in the chamber when you leave the house you must live somewhere extremely violent and very far from somewhere safer.

    You don't have to live in Somalia, or Chicago for that matter, to suffer very severe consequences from being victimized by a criminal and not be prepared to defend your life and person. This is demonstrated every day in every state in the union, and every province of Canada, and indeed almost everywhere.

    The odds may vary, but even if the odds are long that is of no comfort whatsoever to the unlucky one who gets targeted by a criminal who cannot spell compassion let alone exhibit any.


    Some of us have experienced these things first hand, or seen them impact people we care about; thus we are passionate about being prepared to defend ourselves and those we love.


    There is no "safe place" on the face of the earth, that is an illusion. The only real safety we have is that which we can provide for ourselves.

    This is an unnecessary level of safety where modern firearms are concerned, as long as one is well-versed in the basic Three Rules and practices them.

    This sort of criticism typically comes from the hoplophobic crowd, or those whose life experience has simply never included a time when they feared for their life at the hands of a criminal, and don't understand the legitimate concern of those who have had that experience... so we might as well ignore it.


    If you're going to carry, it is best to take it seriously and seek out quality training, and try to be the best CCW'er you reasonably can, given that most have limits on how much time and budget they can put into it.


    Agent J's concerns about situations where he might only have one hand available are perfectly legitimate and reasonable questions to ask within the context of CCW self-defense.
    Well, then, ignore what I say because I've never feared for my life at someone else's hands. I guarantee I wouldn't keep my family in a place that didn't feel safe to me.
    I'll ask you what I asked him, do you live in Mogadishu? Or are you imagining monsters under the bed?

    2.) factually not true

    Handling a firearm with a round chambers is where firearm accidents come from. It's just one step closer to accidentally shooting someone and becoming the new poster child for egregious gun bans.

    No sir. I am a former law enforcement officer. My experiences have brought me to the belief that the concept of "Oh, I live in a safe neighborhood" is largely an illusion, and that there are no guarantees of safety anywhere except that which you create. Given the severity of the consequences of being unprepared, consequences which I have all too often seen with my own eyes, I choose to take responsibility for my own protection and that of my family.

    And yes, I've dealt with potentially dangerous situations as a civilian where I was very glad to be armed.


    No macho fantasies involved, just pragmatic choices based on life experience.
