I respect you and your opinion, i just fear that until he achieves the proficiency of this operation "if he so chooses to continue practicing this way" he may face a self defense scenario, lack the needed fluency and be at a disadvantage and get hurt. Just giving possibilities :-)

I agree. If you're going to carry, do it with one in the chamber. You may be using the off hand to hold off an attacker, pushing a loved one to safety, or one of many other things. If you can only use one hand, and it does happen, and you're not carrying chambered, you're screwed.

Many agencies that issue 1911's or other weapons that allow one in the chamber ready carry advocate drawing and firing both at the range and practice dry fire at home. The justification is to develop muscle memory on the whole "employ and execute deadly force with a firearm". Adding a slide rack, which is an unnecessary additional action that may/may not be used in the split second after you reach for your weapon is counterproductive to a muscle memory action to the "fire decision". I always have a round chambered and the less I have to do in a high stress situation the better.
