    Wouldn't the j-frame either be in condition 2 (hammer down on a full cylinder) or condition 0 (cocked and unlocked)? My understanding is that condition 1 requires an external safety and I am not aware of any j-frames that have an external safety (save those older types with a grip safety).

    FWIW, I carry with a round chambered and a full mag or cylinder. If I have an external safety, I am cocked and locked.

    Always. You never know. And that extra split second it takes to rack the slide. Can be life changing.

    What you said. I'm always condition 1 or 0, depending upon location.

    I, like my firearm, have safeties built in (XDm 45). If it isn't loaded it's just a hunk of metal and plastic.
    Keep your booger hook off the bang switch.
    It's faster to dial 3-5-7 than it is to dial 9-1-1.
    I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    Always carry with one in the chamber. Remember the YouTube video of the jewelry store manager that got killed while trying to chamber a round. Although he did manage to return fire eventually, the outcome may have been different had he been ready to fire.

    There are plenty of discussions, but I am just looking for a simple count.

    After answering, please feel free to expound upon your choice by giving details such as your pistol's usual condition (0 ~ 4), its trigger type (DA/SA, etc.) & so on.

    Thanks much!

    I may have missed this one. Obviously I was still able to vote even if I didn't. Carry with one in the chamber. That's simply the best way of being prepared. If you are not comfortable carrying concealed with one in the chamber, then maybe you should look into your reasons why you wouldn't.

    Carrying with one in the chamber is considered the desired comfortability level that every single carrier works towards, and if you are walking around without one in the pot, hopefull you get there someday.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Always one in the chamber and 10 more ready to back the first one up.

    Personally I hate to leave things to chance.

    Chambered! Otherwise, I might as well carry a brick around with me.
