    I always have one in the chamber. You never know, the time to rack, or a jam from being in a rush could mean the difference in going home or not.

    btw... if you're weary of carrying cocked & locked. The second best way, is a DA/SA w/ decocker. that way, u can chamber the rd, then safely decock the hammer- but be prepared to handle a 7-10lb trigger pull (if you don't think you have time to cock hammer)

    I carry my G27 with one in the chamber and am confident of being 100% safe. The important thing is practicing safe holstering and handling with finger off the trigger unless ready to use.
