This is something that I have been thinking about for awhile. How many of you out there carry with a round in the chamber? I talked to several current and ex cops who say that it is not necessary and they don't do it. One of them is also a DDA who has a CCW.
I have read several posts here that would indicate that there is no time to rack the slide and chamber a round. Thus it would seem important to carry with a round in the chamber.
I have been tempted to do it because it would increase my load to 8 rounds but I am concerned for safety. I carry a Sig 239 and there is no active safety. The DA works great and I have a thumb break on my holster so I am not worried about the weapon going off on accident.
Anyway, I wanted to get the opinion of the more experienced CCW'ers. Thanks
