    Do you carry one in the chamber?[W:26]

    To any that Open an/or Conceal carry. When you do, do you have your weapon Condition 1 ( round in the chamber) or condition 3 ( no round in the chamber). I always carry one in the chamber just because makes my draw all the more smoother since I all I have to do is disengage the safety with my thumb.

    I voted no because I don't carry. But I do think citizens should be allowed to do so, and if I did, I would keep one in the chamber.

    I don't carry yet. But it's been my observation that those that do? If they have a safety, they carry one in the chamber. If they don't have a safety, they don't carry one in the chamber. That makes sense to me.

    very few guns do not have a safety though in some cases its a passive safety like Glock's safe action trigger that has been copied by several other makers. Revolvers never have safeties per say but the long double action trigger is the safety feature. back in the old days of six shooters, people carried the chamber under the hammer empty because a blow to the hammer could fire the weapon. and other than limiting your ammo capacity to five shots, it didn't slow your shooting down because to fire a SA revolver you had to cock the hammer which rotated the cylinder to a live round.

    the IDF often carries their Browning Hi Powers (Kareens) with the chamber empty and practicing drawing while yanking back the slide in the same motion. Reason-IDF personnel are often in crowded urban environments and this practice was seen as a safety measure against Jihadists grabbing IDF pistols and then shooting the Israeli with it.

    Pistols are reflexive defensive weapons. They need to be ready for instant use

    Re: Do you carry one in the chamber?

    if one is going to carry i think it defeats the purpose to not have one in the chamber read to go

    when i do carry its a Walter p99 DA
    theres no manual safety and its always ready to go

    now the first trigger pull of course is harder you have to want to fire the gun it just wont go off and the internal safeties in it wont let it accidentally fire. Ive seen videos where they throw it down stairs etc, it cant fire because there is a wall blacking the firing pin.

    I mean say im carrying and something happens where i only have use of one arm, one hand? then what?

    I don't keep a round in the chamber regardless of a safety, as I don't think it's a safe practice, but I tend to be overly cautious, since that's what I was taught.

    I'm waiting. If I understand it correctly, the State Police (who'll be processing the permits) won't be ready to accept applications until January 1st. Ha! Just another stall tactics, but . . .

    I'm not in a hurry, though. The classes should be fun -- I'm looking forward to the 16 hours of instruction.

    One in the chamber. For me, it defeats the purpose if I don't.
    Be skeptical of anyone who wears a political label - party or ideology - with pride. Most of our problems are because people love to "debate" (it isn't debate, but they pretend it is), but are not interested in developing solutions. Solutions require empathy, thought, and compromise, and most folks aren't interested.
