Guys in the gunstore i go told me the oposite, that if you do'nt have one in the chamber you should not carry at all. I'd like to read some feedback from more experience people on that matter and be thankfull to read some recomendations. BTW Im thinking of carrying both of them depending on the ocassion.
I have a Glock 27,I carry,you sure do want one in the chamber,the other guy does.Just remember though Glocks don't have a saftey and that's what makes it good for a sure fire in the need of your gun,just be careful around the kids when not carrying.

Yeah, your right, I forgot all about the grip safety. I guess it is safer but I don't own one so my glock is what I know.

One in the chamber always...

I think the British military leaves the chamber empty...or at least used to.

With a 1911 condition 1 (cocked and locked) is safer than condition 2 (hammer down on a chambered round). There is added risk involved in dropping the hammer, and then again in pulling it back. You stand the risk of your thumb slipping off either time. When you add panic mode it gets even worse.

Have two guns. Both are chamber-ready!

You know oddly enough my first carry gun was a g17 and it took me a couple of times to feel safe carrying it chambered, with that being said, I carried the glock for about 9 months and got my sig 1911, and for some stupid reason even though I knew it was way safer to carry chambered then the glock, it took me even longer to feel safe carrying my 1911 cocked and locked. I guess just b/c I was new to owning a 1911. Just me I guess.....

So by having the "same" round in the chamber for 3 months.. does this mean you do not clean your weapon to assure it WILL fire?... and you do not practice to be sure you will hit your intended target?

Be careful leaving the same round in the tube if you holster the weapon vertically. The solvents/oil that gets stuck in the firing pin channel can drip down on to the chambered round and penetrate the primer... I use to put the same round in the tube and had it that way for about 6 mths of daily carry, when we rotated our duty ammo the first round failed to ignite. I picked it up and saw a good primer hit, took it apart and the powder was good but the primer was goo

If you have a Glock then there should be no solvents/oil anywhere near the firing pin channel and therefore no oil to corrode your primer in the pipe. Glocks require minimal lube/oil to operate, the slide and frame should be virtually dry except for the 6 main oil points which also take slight drops of oil
