New CCW makes mistake but knew what to do
I have been carrying for (3) months now. I have teen age children at home and i am ver particular about storing my firearm. I come home go into m bedroom imediatley. Get a lock box from under my bed open it and set it on my dresser, check the room for dogs and kids. No dods no kids, remove my pistol from my holster and set it in the box. I opened the slide the chamber was empty i tiped it up to stick my pinky finger in like i allways do but to my suprise there was a hollow point round. I forgot to drop the magazine, no panic . I dropped the slide and charged a round, so i could remove the magazine. With my ruger sr9c you can not drop the magazine if the slide is back. I than dropped the magazine, racked the pisto
To remove the chambered round. Reated my visual and pinky check. Dropped the lock through the open slide, locked the box and put it under my bed.
I am not proud of the fact I messed up my routine, i am very proud of the fact that i knew what to do. I have practied this hundreds of times. Since i carry condition three i wanted to be preparred if i ever had to chamber a round and not use it. So i practice that routine a couple times a week
Probably not a big deal to the more experienced guys but nice moment for me.
