    I joined the "pipe club".

    The "one-in-the-pipe" club, that is. After having my fears put to rest that the slightly cocked hammer on my LCP won't fire a round in case of a sear failure, I decided to start carrying fully loaded.

    Two things...

    1. Thanks for the advice.

    2. I still won't criticize anyone else's carry choices.

    Good call! I carry my 1911 chambered, cocked and locked. But if anyone feels the need to carry without a chambered round, so be it. If it works for them and their comfort level I'm all for it.

    Good for you. Racking a slide to chamber a round takes time and two hands and you may not have either in a "social situation". It IS a little scary until you learn to trust your gun's safeties and your carry methods. Remember, the only REAL safety is the one between your ears.

    Yup, Good call for sure.

    I try not to think of it as being critical, but more along the lines of helpful. I mean, what are friends for.

    The more you cary with one in the pipe you'll be suprised how quickly this
    will become a non issue.Good luck as you start your quest as a law abiding
    citizen who's decided he won't be a victim.

    Just got used to that myself. After much deliberation, I came to the obvious conclusion that if something were to happen, it may be to late by the time I draw and rack a round. Good call on not criticizing others choices concerning carry too. After all this is a deadly weapon we're carrying and the highest standard should be taken for safety. Those people will learn to trust themselves and their weapon in time.

    Welcome to the club! If ever the poo should hit the fan -- you will know that you have made the right choice and be very happy that you did! Like "gottabkiddin", we are not trying to criticize a members choice of carry. We do try to provide some alternative thoughts as to why one method may have an advantage over another.

    Congrats. FWIW, I've abused the heck out of my LCP with one in the pipe for the last year, and no AD (or ND for that matter). It usually is sat on, all day in my right rear pocket. It's been dropped (hard) on the concrete once, and knocked around quite a bit in it's holster in the leg pocket on my shorts in the summer. Unless you pull that trigger WAY back, nothing's gonna happen.
