    Everytime I hear someone say, I'll rack a round into the chamber and that will get his attention. I was a LEO for over 15 years and never saw it happen. When a gun was really needed, it was now and fast. In many cases we already had it out and ready. But for most citizens interviewed after a violent situation, it happened rather quickly. How can you expect to draw your gun, put a round in and come onto target, if he's getting his out NOW? Most DA pistols like your Kel-tec, take a deliberate pull of a long DA trigger to make it go bang. Unless your deliberately messing around with a loaded gun, the chances of it going off are about zero. Don't forget, ther have been police officer and citizens found dead with a gun in their hand with an empty chamber. What would you do with a revolver? Same principal. Most quality firarms have drop safeties or a design that prevents the gun from going off if dropped, if your worried about that. I suggest you train with a "loaded" gun and carry a "loaded gun", not a half-loaded gun.;)

    I carry with one in the pipe.
    If the pistol has an operable safety it's on condition 1.
    the best safety is between your ears
    IMHO if you are afraid to carry with a round chambered, carry a wheelgun

    Did it ever occur to you that when it is effective that a gun being drawn and racked acts as an effective deterrent, LEO's never hear about it?
    And why is it that at least four people in here have persisted in making insulting comments about my "worries", when I've stated clearly that "worry" and training have nothing to do with my personal choice???
    (and how would I train with a half-loaded gun...go out to the range, point at the target and say bang?)

    Hey everybody, may I request that we carry this (extremely valueable) digression over to the Deadly Force And the Law forum? It's a good discussion and it deserves its own thread.

    When I carry, it'll probably be Condition 1: Cocked and Unlocked (safety off). Mr. Browning designed his masterpiece to be carried that way with the grip safety being the final stage of readiness before firing, and one that required no finagling on the part of the shooter.

    Currently, on those occasions that I wear something, it's in Condition 2: Cocked and Locked (safety on): I feel that I can draw and release the thumb safety in one motion without diminishing my time on target.

    Under NO circumstance would I carry without one in the chamber...feeling you'll have time to rack the slide is gambling with suicide, and the stuff movies are made of. Take every tactical advantage you can! Remember: "If you find yourself in a fair fight, you need to reconsider your tactics."

  10. I chose other, as Glock and Springfield XD aren’t made for options.

  11. “NO round chambered safety on” I would look into carrying an asp if you someone that concerned about a negligent discharge.
