The people who carry guns with empty chambers use "Barney" tactics. They are often more afraid of their own firearms than the BG.

Yes, you have just earned an A+ in understanding the facts of life.

Hey, all. I've been lurking this thread for a couple days now and I agree with the majority. I plan on having one in the chamber when I carry. It's safer than not being able to rack the slide under stress, like in that video.

I haven't read through this whole thread but I just wanna say 1 thing.

Do you have a fire extinguisher in the kitchen? I have one in case I ever need it but hope I never have to use it.

Same reason I carry a gun!

I want it at the ready. The only way to do that is to have it fully loaded and chambered.

You can't be "half pregnant"! You are either prepared to defend life at a moments notice or you are not. If you don't feel safe carrying a firearm with a round in the chamber, maybe you shouldn't be carrying it!

It takes practice and skill to defend oneself with a concealed firearm, you further handicap yourself by carrying it with an unloaded chamber (ie the added time it takes to fire)

Default please answer my ques

this is a very interesting question to me.

i am (slowly) becoming interested in a concealed carry. but i think i am absolutely convinced i would not want to carry one in the chamber.

what are my best options if this is my position? i know an auto would be a bad idea, would a revolver work better?

i had a friend who carried one in the chamber, dropped his pistol, and it went off shooting through the front door...yeah, it happens.

serious safety issues imo.

or maybe they just don't want to hurt themselves or others by accident?

again, i personally know someone who dropped a chambered firearm & it went off....he certainly chamber it it anymore.

If you are carrying a quality firearm, designed and engineered for ccw, trained correctly and practice as if your life depends upon it, AD's just don't happen.
