    I carry the Glock 23 with one in the tube. Until yesterday when my Crossbreed SuperTuck got here I carried it in the CTAC holster. No issues.

    Would you feel scared to carry a revolver?

    I think that an unchambered semi-auto is more of a liability than a help.

    I carry a XD-40sc in a supertuck with one in the chamber. Going on 3 years with my CCW and not a single problem.

  5. Re: How many carry a Glock or XD with one in the chamber

    I carry a glock 30 with one in the chamber. I've done drop tests with primer only cartridges in the Glock, in my XD 45 tactical, and my Taurus 1911 with nary a discharge.

    Also, in a tense do or die situation I don't want my epitaph to be:
    "If only he'd remembered to rack the slide..."

    I have 2 Smith and Wesson M&P pistols. Same idea as the Glock and XD with striker fire. No issue with condition 1.

    I made some adjustments to the trigger pull weight. Here in MA they come at 10+ lbs..

    Now 6lbs and works fine, full functional testing and safety testing done. Simulated drop testing with soft mallet. No issues at all. I feel funny not having one in the chamber.

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

  7. WD,
    Think of it as a DAO wheel gun with a really light trigger pull and a slide.

    Just remember the 'light trigger pull' part.

    As for the whole Glock trigger safety thing, ask Plexico Burris how well it works. He can show you the scars!! (But only on Sundays between 8 and 11.)

    I never did understand that one. The man made millions for playing football but couldn't afford a $20 Uncle Mike's IWB holster with a belt clip??

  8. I carry my Glock 26 chambered. I would never want to second guess myself wondering if it is ready to fire in an emergency! I have a 1911, too.. and treat both the same. Finger off the trigger until you're ready to fire.. use a proper holster. I feel safer than being unarmed, either way. :)
