And what about a safety? What do you think about having a safety at all, not keeping one in the chamber without a safety?
Thanks
Imagine if you will...the humble DA revolver. Multiple chambers, all loaded w/ no safety. Observation of safety rules prevented carnage with them. I see no reason to suspect that it wouldn't continue to be effective with them newfangled plastic beasties. Avoid indiscriminate pulling of the trigger and life will be good.

Ever try to draw a pistol and rack the slide when you are in a car? I carry with one in the chamber because when I needed it quick it was there.

Be VERY honest with yourself and ask if you are willing to commit to a DAILY training regimen to be that good at carrying an unloaded gun. How long since you had drawing practice? How's your Aikido training going? How about disassembling and reassembling your firearm...blindfolded? How many hours of TV do you watch a week?

There is a commitment to doing anything, and adding difficulty to getting a gun into the fight to save your life is not something most Americans can handle. To keep applying Israeli techniques to the average American is audacious and laughable. We are not capable of this commitment - we might miss an episode of "Dancing with the Stars."
Exactly. Mericans today could care less. Unless youre hard core and really like that ****, but people like that are few and far between.

I carry all the time. Whatever gun I have with me, is fully loaded, and ready to go. Isn't that the point?

IMO the pro's and con's would be living or dying. Can not imagine trying to rack a slide in a high stress situation and you may not have the time to do so. Before I had to do that I would go the DA revolver route and one empty hole under the hammer. But I also agree with WOC. It's your life and your choice and if you are comfortable with that then by all means do it.

I carry whatever I carry ready to go bang. Sometimes I do carry a 1911. The thing about a 1911 is it must be checked on a regular basis. I wonder how often the other 1911 guys test their safeties. Whenever I clean my gun after I reassemble...I make sure it is not loaded. Then I put the thumb safety on. I try to pull the trigger. Then I take the thumb safety off and try without pressing the grip safety. I test each safety on a regular basis. Pulling your gun out of the holster to put it away is not the time you want to find out a safety is not working properly.

I used to carry an empty chamber. But I am afraid that if I had to use one hand to fight someone off while I draw I would not be able to chamber a round.
