If you were to have to try to fight someone off with one hand while drawing your weapon with the other you will not be able to fire if you do not have one in the chamber. Many self defense shootings happen at an arms length.

My agency requires for us to carry one in the chamber at all times while on duty for our primary weapon "side arm". That however is not the case for the long arms.

I carry my Kimber 1911 daily with one in the chamber. But I always keep the hammer up because i dont use a thumb break. Ive practiced quite a bit on cocking the hammer while drawing and ive got it down pretty well. I guess carrying with a round in the chamber comes down to the type of weapon and personal choice.

Get a good firm holster like a carbon fiber one that covers the trigger and locks on to the trigger guard so it won't fall out. I'd say at home you might not wanna keep it chambered if you have kids around; I don't.

Default What??

I have never heard that if you carry condition 1 that the gun could jam. If that is the case, i want a different gun I carry a G23 in a tommytheis holster. I dont feel no less confident if i carry plus1 or not. It depends on how i feel if i choose to ride plus1. Now, if i carryed a 1911, i would be nervous carrying condition 1 just because i heard of the safety getting flipped while carrying. Me personally, i would lower the hammer and just practice drawing and cocking.

carrying a 1911 with the manual safety off cocked with a round in the chamber is safer than carrying a glock. you still got the grip safety. if your comfy carrying a glock why does seeing the hammer scare you??
