My dad used to give me flak for carrying with one in the chamber but told him, "An empty carrying weapon is a $300 hammer!"

What if someone grabs you and you only have one hand to draw your weapon? If you have to charge it first you got a problem that could cost you your life.

Yes. Always one up the pipe.

Brings my blood pressure way down.

I just tell the family:

"HEY! I don't tell you what to do with

your guns, do I, scumwaffle?"

I dont have a ccw for 1 and my kids just by some chance, they get ahold of it long enough for me not to see.

I agree, but a well trained handgunner should be able to chamber his auto with one hand, by bending the knee and placing the gun down behind it and work the action.
What ya gonna do if you are in a gun fight and your hand gets shot up and you have to clear a stove pipe or something? How are you going to work the slide when you need to do a second magazine? Just don't practice this in shorts!
You can also use your belt holding up your pants, etc
Im just sayin'

You should rethink your protection gun rule. If there is a chance a child can get to a loaded gun leaving it where they can access it, is very high risk. There have been so many children shot by this kind of thinking. The parent always tell the first responders the same thing. I didn't think a little kid could load the round in the gun.

Show him this video:

The gentleman in the video died because he couldn't rack his slide under stress. Perhaps the best argument for condition 1. I started carrying cold. Never again after I saw this.

Carrying a weapon without one in the chamber is carrying an unloaded weapon. I see no point in carrying an unloaded weapon.

QFT. When I got my permit, the first thing my dad told me was: "If you feel the need to carry, make suer that the weapon is fully loaded. With your revolver, load all six. It has a transfer bar for a reason. With the 1911, cocked, locked, and ready to rock is the only way you should carry it. Having to opperate the slide under stress could get you killed."

Considering that this advice came from a retired USMC Master SGT who signed up in 1969, I took those words to heart. The only time that any gun I have is unloaded in both the magazine and the pipe is when it is not under my control, or on my person. Usually, at that point it is in the safe.

I look at it this way. Cops carry one in the chamber.
