    I was actually joking in my post because whether or not to carry with the chamber loaded question comes around once a month as does a question about storing magazines fully loaded weakening the springs (which I know does not). I do keep my gun loaded capacity+1.

    I've heard a couple of people point out that should you have to unload your weapon for any reason you now have an extra round floating around.

    (IMO) not worth the hassle

    Both my carry guns stay chambered.

    lock and load

    If you are not comfortable carrying with a round in the chamber you may be carrying the wrong gun, you may not understand the safety features engineered into your gun, or you don't trust yourself or your ability to produce your weapon without it somehow firing before you want it to. Carrying the quality self defense handgun and practice should lead to confidence that will allow you to carry a handgun that is loaded and ready. All firearms require safe handling at all times and the best safety is between your ears.

    Or none of the above. You may carry as the manufacturer recommends. You may not be comfortable carrying with a chambered round for lots of reasons not mentioned above. But that does not necessarily make them wrong, as shermr so implies.
