Wrong! Go back to gun school please.

    I think if you can't handle your weapon loaded you should not carry

    Always better to carry with one in the chamber. This isn't the movies.

    Completely agree here. You carry as if you need to use it. If you carry without one in the chamber then you might as well take the magazine out too. You're carrying for the wrong reasons.

    I'm sure the attacker will kindly wait for you to chamber a round then aim and fire.

    there is always one in the chamber if you have a revolver. no difference with semi-auto pistols.

    i understand your you get more cumphy with your weapon, you will see the light! a suprise scuffle could require a one handed draw and fire.

    I drive with a drink in one hand and a burger in the other holding the wheel with my knees. I'm sure i'll have time to react in an emergency.
