Thread: One in the chamber? Or not!!

    I could not agree more. The first examples of the 1911, did not have the thumb safety. Only a grip safety. But the Cavalry insisted that the thumb safety be added.

  3. Yes. No Brainer.

  4. I wouldn't consider not having one in the chamber!

  5. would not carry any other way. I am a 1911 guy I carry with one in the tube and the hammer forward allows rapid deployment very safe carry and no fumbling with the safety strap over galco leather. unsheathe it pull hammer back and by by bad guy!

  6. I carry chambered with my Glock 30SF (.45 ACP). At first I was nervous because of the perception that Glock lacks "true" safeties. But I consistently practice proper gun handling and practice my draw in all my different holsters. One of my favorite holsters is the Smart Carry because of it's deep concealment, although it does make me nervous having one chambered right on top of my "junk".

    I am just curious: How many or who of you in this thread carry one chambered in a Glock? What, if anything, have you been concerned with and how do you carry?

    One in the tube

    Since I carry mostly Glocks I always have one in the tube. There isn't a safety to switch on and off just put your finger on the trigger. All the safety you need. I also carry in a holster also. Makes it a lot easier. I have carried my 1911 and have had the safety come off so I don't like to carry it.
    I do carry my 92-S on occasion but I don't think a 9mm has enough punch. I have my 4 Glocks on my CCW. 40 S&W, .357 SIG, 45 ACP and 9mm. I usually go for the heavier cals.

  8. of course one in the pipe and safety on. Taurus 24/7

  9. cocked and locked
