Train to carry a round in the chamber.

I know that the Israeli military trains this way, but if you have the choice learn to carry it "loaded."

When the SHTF that is one less thing you have to worry about.

However, train as you fight, and you will fight as you train. Train often.

Regardless of a safety....or the fact that OP specifically said GLOCK.


If I'm in an area where I suspect bad things could happen, the safety on the HK is clicked off, therefore I'm carrying cocked with no safety but my finger.

KEEP YOUR BOOGER HOOK OFF THE BANG SWITCH.!!!!!!!!!

I think the poster that claimed that racking the slide while drawing only adds a couple hundredths of a second is full of it. Try doing that under a real world situation where your life is in danger. That's when almost all thought processes are canceled out and you lose fine motor skills as your brain kicks into fight/flight mode. I've said it before and I'll say it again-a unloaded gun makes for a very poor club.

That mode of carry and draw maybe fine for games but in the real world you may need your weak hand to fend off a close attacker while you draw. Now what? When you carry with an empty chamber you are assuming that you will always know when, where and how you will be attacked. We all know what happens when you ASSUME.

I do not have any idea what class of police officer would tell anyone to keep an empty chamber for personal protection. Maybe one that does not want anyone carrying as mentioned or one of those that is stupid enough to believe he could do his job without one! But I will guarantee you they do not an empty chamber! And if they do they are dumber than dumb.
After 20+ years of being an LE Firearms Instructor and Range Master for a Metro we only had around 5 Unintentional Pistol Discharges every one of them caused by a *severe case of cranial rectitis! Finger on trigger prior to getting on target. Many were not a problem because the weapon was facing down range which resulted in mostly embarrassment and some adjusting to practices.
In regard to carry for CCW the correct holster is a main factor. I carry a Model 27 40 Cal Glock all the time for CCW and have a Fobus Paddle Holster that covers and protects anything from contacting the trigger until the weapon is removed.
Best thing to get is a good safe holster and practice!

Did not mean to rule you out on my response since it was initially your question but addressed it back to Robo to agree and confirm what he said in his post. Check out the holsters and don't worry about it. Just have safe handling habits, train and be prepared! If it happens ever it will not usually come pre-announced and God help anyone with an empty chamber!

x2. A few months ago two Tampa cops were shot dead--both in the face--by a suspect who whipped out a concealed 9. pop pop pop pop--it happened that fast. They died with their weapons in their holsters. When the s**t can hit the fan with such blinding speed, it makes no sense at all for any LEO to go on duty with an empty pipe.
