    Surely you can see the difference between drawing from concealment to get off first shot in an "unexpected" assault v. a reload in the middle of a fight?

  3. An unloaded handgun (and a gun without a round in the chamber is, IN MY OPINION, unloaded) is merely a very short club or a very awkward hand thrown projectile. I FEEL that you would be better served by carrying a half a brick instead. The half a brick is far easier to throw.

    Think of the advantages. Not only are bricks easier to throw, there's more.

    There's no 'Concealed Brick Permit' that you have to buy or a 'Concealed Brick Training Course' that you have to pay a mason hundreds of dollars to take.

    You can buy them anywhere- without going through a Federal Brick Dealer, a background check or filling out a form.

    They are CHEAP. You can even find folks that will just GIVE them to you. And you can get them across state lines without having to go through a brick dealer in your home state to take possession!

    AND you can carry your half a brick ANYWHERE. Church, schools, courthouses, bars ... it doesn't matter because it's perfectly LEGAL. After all, it's just a half a brick.

Regardless of his training and carry method, the fact remains that this could not have happened if the chamber had been empty. My Glock does not have a round in the chamber but I can still rack a round fast enough to defend myself. However, to each his own.
    If the guy had equipment that wasn't in disrepair, the holster wouldn't have depressed the trigger. He needs a holster with a solid or reinforced mouth so this doesn't happen.

    But I've had a hell of a time finding a well fitting holster for my half brick.

    I have said this before and I am saying it again, reaction never ever beats action, if the BG has a gun drawn you are already slow/late, if you have to rack a round into the chamber you are twice as slow. Agree with Treo, Betcha cannot rack a round before my bullet strikes you (my round will be on way while you are racking). That said, carry how you wish, just wondering if CA law allows you to carry an unloaded brick?

    You don't top off your magazine after charging?!?!

    NavyLT is jerking your chain. That said, I don't top off my magazine because one round isn't worth the hassle to me. I carry a spare magazine and if I use all that up and still lose because of one round it was my time
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.
