    I would have fired him and sent him home immediately if I found him violating our ROE like that...

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I always have one in the chamber and so does my husband. I am just really not comfortable any other way. If there is a reason for me to pull it out that's reason enough for it to be ready to fire.

    safety has darn near always been a major issue....

    remember when auto motor cars 1st became prevalent; well the towns folk who had no idea how fast the went decided that a man with a lantern had to proceed the vehicle to alert everyone in it path that it was coming. even back in the far away time of our great grandparents there were people in the cities who could not use their own 5 senses and forced everyone else to dumb down to their level.
    now we have noise generators in a Prius so the 'plugged-in' poeple wont become road kill for not looking where they are going

    A really expensive, pretty club, but a club nonetheless.

    One in the chamber... As long as the gun is on my person and in a holster, why would there NOT be one in the chamber? Nightstand gun under the bed shotgun? Magazine inserted, (or tube filled in the case of a my shotgun) action closed on an empty chamber with safety off...

    I think it was some guy on TV that said, "Firearm Safety is Your Responsibily!"

    You must be perficient with your firearms, this includes handling them safely!

    There is NO SUCH THING as an accidental discharge!

    There is only NEGLIGENT DISCHARGE!

    One chambered

    Chambered, and if it is my 1911, hammer down, Sig 226, 220, S&W 438, Starfire 40 (hammer down) Walther 99c in decocked mode, if I won't carry a 1911 cocked, I am not putting a ,40 in my pocket cocked (I know the trigger safety thing fp block). Since the 99 is a DA/SA the need to carry cocked is minimal. Oh, if I ever carry my Smiths 4006 or 645 chambered, and those have to be hammer down. Just my 2 Cents.

    I've learned one thing, when you need it you need it right now and right then. I've learned thankfully not to hard of the way that without one in the chamber you are carrying a clunky pair of brass knuckles.
    I almost ended up street pizza because of it.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    If your weapon is designed to be carried with a round in the chamber, then by all means carry it that way. You don't want to give the BG even that one more second that you mention when it's your life.

    I carry one less on the spring so not +1 but a full mags worth anyway. But ALWAYS chambered! Perspective? Law enforcement doesn't carry empty because when they need it, they need it fast and maybe even with one hand and their firearms are designed to be carried that way. To me taking one out of the chamber takes too many advantages with it.

    Get used to it, get comfortable with it, carry on and stay safe!
