LOL! Actually a few years ago I didn't even know what Glock was. I just got my permit last year and it's been wonderful adding 5 Glocks to my collection. I love learning about Glock and love talking with the armorers. Sometime I'd like to take an armorers course through the GSSF

You weren't on the forum, so we couldn't have told you!

30,

First of all I can not believe anyone who is allegedly a weapons person or claims to know anything about self defense and or tactics would even suggest you carry a Glock or 1911 pistol with an empty chamber. If they choose to do that they are volunteering to be a victim. 99.9% of the time a threat will come instantly and with out prior announcement. So carry your Glock with one in the chamber. And where he or she came up with the idea, just because you have a round in the chamber the gun is more apt to jam????? Wow! Must have dug this one out of mid air! But I also carry a Glock 27 for CCW most of the time and the issue is as some of the members here have stated. Purchase a good "quality safe holster" for it that not only secures the pistol but covers the trigger guard area of the pistol when it is secured in the holster. There are many available. I have a Fobus as well as a Blackhawk holster for mine that not only protects the pistol but prevents anything from contact with the trigger until the pistol is drawn from the holster. But by all means, keep a round in the chamber or you might as well not carry it.

I find this statement slightly ridiculous. How can carrying a 1911 like mentioned above be in any way safer...

First off lets look at the weapons as if the 1911 had no external safeties. In a case of a dropped weapon or sharp impact on the hammer( should it be cond. 1 or 2) a 1911 can still discharge a round. A Glock, by design cannot discharge. The integrated drop safety ensures this. The striker is not even fully back and engaged. If a striker slipped without a trigger pull nothing would happen... even if by miracle the striker gained enough potential energy to detonate the primer without a trigger pull the firing pin safety would stop any accidental discharge.

If people are scared of a Glock not having any external safeties the best thing is education. The weapon should always be in a holster covering the trigger. If drawn from the holster your finger should not be on the trigger plain and simple. So if you carry responsibly there should be no sense of " my gun is not as safe"

Search "Patrick Venetek" on google. You'll come across a story of an NYPD cop who supposedly dropped his glock, which then went off and eventually struck a little boy playing in his playpen. It was total bull, though, and apparently nothing ever happened to this guy for either shooting the kid or lying about what happened. Most likely he tried to pull the slide off while it was still chambered, pulled the trigger and then said he dropped it. But leave it to some dumbass to give all the haters out there more fuel for the fire.

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 was told the same thing but I don't see how a chambered round would jam your firearm...
And Glock is one of the safest handguns to carry loaded!

IMO, if there isn't a round in the chamber, it's a club at best. most situations that could cause one to have to use your firearm are most likely going to be up close and personal, and if you're having to hold someone back with one hand and drawing the pistol with the other, which hand is racking the slide to chamber a round? ony way this would make sense is if you were carrying a revolver. but on a semi-auto pistol, it just doesn't make any sense. the best safety is complete understanding and working knowledge of your firearm and safe practice when using it. remember the safety rule of firearms, alsways treat every gun as loaded.

I always carry with one in the chamber.

Why? Because carrying with more than one in the chamber just strikes me as being a little bit foolish.
