    In response to all of those "Do you carry with one in the chamber?" threads....

    Here's a link to a thread on officer.com, it'll give some perspective on what cops think about carrying a gun with an empty chamber. Some of it is kind of funny and the thread wanders here and there, but it is easy to see where they stand on the subject. What is good for them (us) is good for all you CCW holders, too!!

    Seems pretty universal.

    I am amazed there are gun carriers out there who actually do not put one in the chamber.

    People dont carry a revolver unloaded so why would they carry a semi-auto "unloaded"?

    Good stuff. Funny, though, that some of those LEOs in that thread are calling rounds, ammo, and cartridges as "bullets". My wife does that, and it drives me crazy...

    Posts: 268 He probably got that idea from watching to much TV and/or movies. Ever notice how they rack every time after they draw their weapons? Sometimes you'll see them rack several times during a scene even though theres no re-loading going on.
    *******************************************

    I have actually noticed this, in fact there was an episode of "Flashpoint" where the bad guy, a cop gone bad actually racked the slide on his gun. holstered it, then walked down a corridor to ambush the good guys. When he got to the ambush he drew, racked again, and got ready to fire. So as I'm watching I think, why isn't he going to bend over and pick up that live round? He might need it later.

    Yeah that's definitely a peeve of mine with movies and TV shows. Makes them look stupid, and in real life it's definitely not a good idea either.

    One guy said, "I was actually ridiculed by an officer after informing him of my carry weapon's location, that it had 15 in the mag, and that the chamber was empty during a traffic stop."

    The officer said, "What do you plan on doing, throwing it at somebody? You're dead in that half second it took you to rack the slide."

    I couldn't agree more.

    Sorry. Failure To Understand. As in, failure to understand how the firearm works, failure to understand how lethal encounters work, failure to understand that fractions of fractions of seconds count, etc.

    Saw that episode, and thought the same thing!

    I've been around LEOs for over 40 years. I've yet to meet one that carried with an empty chamber.
