Now why in the world would anyone do that? I'm just asking?

Depends on why they're out of the safe. If I'm going to the range, I'll unload them until I get there. (except for the one in my holster)

I will not, under any circumstances holster an unloaded, or partially loaded weapon. If I fire a few rounds, then have to stop for something, the weapon is fully reloaded before being holstered.

When I got home, I took my service revolver out of the holster, and opened the cylinder to unload it. It wasn't loaded!

That scared the crap out of me so badly, I've never had an unloaded weapon around since.
Can understand it.. Especially when your life depends on it. close call.
