This was in the news some months back.

    While a gun safe would have prevented this tragedy, that is where the gun was headed, after the officer went to the restroom. It only takes a moment, for the SHTF to happen. Had this officer had a duty pistol with a safety, or an empty chamber, some family would still have their child.

    Reading this (and your many other idiotic posts i.e. safeties always on) it seems me that you're awfully afraid of guns. Like scared shitless by them. So what the f*ck are you doing here? Why are you carrying a gun if they're so scary, bad, dangerous, etc.? Why are you an N R A member if all guns do is go off by themselves or kill children? Who the hell are you?

    I've heard some really "different" takes on gun issues on this forum but for an instructor yours are the most anti-gun, fear induced, ignorant ideas I've heard.

    Guns should never be feared, only respected.

    I carry hot for several reasons. 1) There may not be time to chamber a round. 2) My gun has a manual safety and long trigger pull, therefore having little chance of accidental discharge. 3) I pocket-carry and the chance of someone grabbing my weapon is slight.

    That's a little difficult to do when you are a bona fide paranoid schizophrenic wearing a tinfoil hat 3 sizes too big obstructing not only your actual sight, but any normal thought process as well.

    So in your mind, no one should ever carry with one in the chamber because there is always some minute possibility that some accident could happen.

    Yeah, gun accidents happen. But you know what you can't read about? The millions more of gun accidents that DIDN'T happen because the owner of the gun wasn't a careless dumbass.

  8. Any modern pistol as far as I know is designed to be able to carry safely with a round in the chamber by either having external safety or safety measures like long pulls on DAO triggers or true DA triggers. As long as the pistol is bolstered and the trigger and guard covered you are good to go.

    I am saying a tactical sidearm is a big responsibility, and for someone to own one, and NOT use it in accordance outlined fully in the owners manual, is not a prudent choice for myself.

    .

    Own a table saw? Have you removed the finger guard, so it is easier to use? Would make typing in this forum more difficult, once the Natural Selection process kicks in, to thin the herd.

    Once a bullet starts traveling down the barrel of a gun, there is no turning it back around again.

    My posts on here, only say how I conduct myself, with my firearms, and to warn others, that might listen, to be careful.

    Carry 1911 cocked and locked and have for many years if Glock considers this unsafe after over 100 years doing this with colt, I would not carry a Glock I own two, and will carry my colt, I intend it to be unsafe for the bad guys.

    Its not about winning or losing. It is about teaching and learning, asking for advice, comprehending with critical analysis, and making your own choice. Every time I read something here I learn something new or find a slightly different perspective on an old topic.

    I said a while back "IMHO, if anyone thinks they can drop both hands to manipulate a gun while repeatedly getting punched in the face and still have both the time and focus to ready a weapon and successfully use it in self defense, well, won't."
