Default Carry Loaded?

Just curious... Do you carry loaded with round in chamber? Or loaded without clambering? Or mag in side pocket?

Condition one.
But I don't suggest it in your case.

If you are asking these questions I would strongly suggest taking a NRA basic pistol course. You also need a safety course to get a concealed carry permit. Most NRA sponsored ranges require basic pistol unless you have qualified with a pistol in the military or are LEO.

I agree with everyone else. You should get some good training. I am an IDPA safety officer and competitive shooter. IDPA is supposed to help prepare for a real life self defense scenario. Normal stages start with the gun in the holster loaded with a round in the chamber. That is the safest way. However, you must fully understand safe gun handling before attempting to carry a gun.

The four rules of gun safety are

Treat every gun as if it were loaded.

Finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.

Know you target and what is behind it.

Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.


If these rules are new to you...you are not ready to carry.

I was in my FL LGS and an older fella with CC was complaining that his double stack mag wasn't working properly.
He had put the cartridges in backwards!
Be careful out there!

Loaded and ready at all times! Any other way is out of the question if you are going to carry.

An unloaded gun is a fancy club or paper weight.
