I ALWAYS have one in the chamber.
I ALWAYS have the firearm in a holster.

It's your kitchen right.
Did you do anything that was unsafe while unloading it?
Why would you not carry with one in the chamber?

My dad doesn't have the same interests in guns and personal protection that I do. All he sees when I carry is sirens and flashing lights waiting to happen.

You need to educate your family more. Whether its got a round in the chamber or not is irrelevent to safety. Its never getting pointed at anyone that isnt wanting to be shot so what difference does it make where the bullets are??
I am with you 100%. The other day my nephew was over and him and my youngest son seen me taking my gun out to clean it. My nephew asked Auntie is that loaded ...my son at nine years old answered ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.
Proud mother. :-)

I have always figured I might not have time to rack a slide if I needed the weapon and I was right.

Only time my handguns are empty is to clean them or while changeing mags or reloading a revolver when shooting them. I don't unload at home so no chance to do something foolish. And handguns allways have round in the chambers when loaded. been that way for 26 years of cc'n and a few more when we carry our long guns in our trucks. Just not chambered back then.

Why carry a half loaded gun? There are too many what if's that could stop a person from racking a round. I carry with a round in the chamber at all times.
