    I recently completed my conceal carry course here in NC, the instructor said if your carrying a pistol it's no good without one in the chamber. I'll be carrying a Ruger LCR when my permit comes in, so I know it will be ready to fire, God forbid that I ever will need to.

    Works fine on the range. Trouble is that the day you need to draw for survival, you have something in the other hand, or it is wet, or one's arthritis has flared up, or...etc

    I'm glad we've had this chance to have this discussion

    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.

    Train....If carrying with one in the pipe makes you nervous you need to train more. Also take the time to learn exactly how your pistol works and what makes it safe to carry one in the pipe.

    The biggest safety failure is the one between a persons ears not on the gun.

    Cocked & Locked, it's a 1911A1. No need to expend seconds trying to manipulate the slide OR have the slide jam because you rode it with your hand. My 1911 stays in C&L position. Don't want to waste any time when tenths of a second may mean life or death. HARD way to say it but that's the reality of it!

  7. This is a new week, Treo.... Once a week, you know the drill. I'll be right back. I have to make sure my magazine springs aren't weakened from keeping them fully loaded, and I have to figure out how to send my handgun to my brother's second cousin in the next state...

    It may not be new to us but it is new to the person asking the question. There is hardly a single topic that has not been covered at some point.

    And probably none as thoroughly covered as this one, except whether or not to inform a police officer if you are carrying a gun.

    If you're going to carry it...load it! You can practice "unloaded" during specific practice sessions some other time.
    Ive got a shotgun here loaded and ready, and a ruger lcp loaded and ready also I meant on my person at home. But you convinced me, ill be loaded and ready.
