    Of course this assumes that you completely ignore the fact that you are most likely going to be measuring your draw against someone who already has a gun in their hand .

    Other than that you're spot on

    I see no reason not to have one in the chamber.

    I carried around the house today with out one in the chamber this morning because my dad let me borrow his OWB holster for his M&Pc. We both have an M&Pc because I was trying it out. I didnt like the holster so I chambered a round and put it back in my IWB holster.

    I dont want to pull out my gun grab it with two hands chamber a round and try to shoot when I will already be under stress.

    I agree, i do not want to take the chance of short stroking my auto in case of stress.
    time may be all you have on your side God forbid.
    Remember what Sean Connery told Andy Garcia in the Untouchables, "You checked it once now put it away" when i carry i always keep that in mind, at the end of the day you can unload, or put back in safe.

    I always carry one in the pipe. I carry a Kahr CW45 that has no external safety and I've never felt like I was carrying it in an unsafe condition.

    short stoking the slide as not pulling it back far enough because you are in a rush resulting in a stove pipe condition.

    I think he was just yanking your chain. Oops, don't take that the wrong way. On topic; one in the chamber for me, safety on.

    And this is how unintentional accidents happen. At least nine months later.

    Or the world is coming to an end ect ect. Which it the key reason why every gun owner should train for all unlikely events.

    I would counter that if the person you are facing already has a gun in his hand you have other problems than your draw. Your situational awareness has failed and if you are carrying this seems highly unlikely in any case.

    People who carry will carry the way they want to. No way is right or wrong what matter is the training.
