    Howdy,

    I use the George Zimmerman case as an example:

    Did George have the ability to chamber a round while he was getting his butt kicked by a skinny boy? Even with George's +1 year of intense MMA training he still would not have had a chance to "rack the slide".

    Pretty simple.

    Carry hot. If you are afraid if your gun, get a different gun, maybe a revolver.

    Ok , now I think we understand each other.

    But to put it in perspective would you carry a 1911 in Condition zero ?

    I have. I don't like to. If I have a safety I use it.

    This is what decided me, when I first started carrying the people around me were all 1911 aficionados.
    They all carried their firearms cocked in a holster with a retention strap; the strap went between the hammer and the firing pin (which isnít a bad Idea).
    Anyway my gun was an S&W Model 915 with a decocker. Not knowing any better I carried it in the holster cocked and unlocked with the retention strap between the hammer and firing pin.

    DISCLAIMER: What I just described is absolutely an unsafe way to carry a firearm.

    Having said that I carried it that way for about 6 month before someone squared me away and the pistol didnít fire ever.
    Very Honest Treo. Mistakes that no one knows about are often times the hardest to admit. Excellent training tip.

    I would change my method of carry if losing my balls was a serious concern. Ball Loss, Life Loss... Retrain your brain and begin a different carry routine.

If you are going the wheel gun route just make sure it has a safety for the hammer. I don't know the name of it but it keeps the hammer away from the primer unless the trigger is pulled.

    When you carry a revolver without a round under the hammer, it's still "hot," but you have one less round. Older revolvers have nothing to prevent the hammer, if struck, from engaging the primer, and should not have a round under the hammer. The hammer block was designed to prevent the hammer from hitting the primer unless the trigger is pulled, and revolvers have been made this way for at least the past 60-70 years.

    Yes, time is always of the essence. But I have not put enough practice into drawing and removing safety to be comfortable with it. It takes a LOT of practice and constant practice to be proficient enough to be safe. And being safe is as important as protection.
    Accidentally shooting yourself or God forbid, someone else, gives us all a bad name.

    My sister-in-law shot my brother in the leg, with three young children in the room. I know of several other instances where people shot their foot or leg.
    Let me see if I understand what you're saying: You haven't enough practice to carry with a round in the chamber, but you have had enough practice to be able to chamber a round quickly and efficiently when death is staring you in the face...
