You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
What?! They make an auto-loader that's un-chambered? Ok, kidding aside, it sounds like you need to forgo the new patio furniture and attend a good gun course. Training will instill self-confidence and it will dismiss any concern of carrying a ‘loaded’ gun. If you ever have to use that thing’ you won’t be able to get those bullets out of the barrel fast enough to suit your needs.

i carry a revolver ( usually a 642 or 332) with all chambers loaded. its primary safety is a transfer bar. though all manufactures have had recalls at some time in their existence,
the better the brand, the fewer the recalls. eg; S&W vs Taurus and Charter Arms. and overall, if the design was flawed to the point of major danger--would not the news peoples shout it in our faces?
since the SHOUT is closer to an occasional whisper--I'm going with the guns are made very, very well; even a charter arms.
i mentioned "its primary safety"...
the overall primary safety is between each of our ears. use it always, exercise it constantly if you are going to carry a gun.
i also carry a variety of semi-autos. the 2 most used are a Colt Defender-- chambered with hammer back and slide safety engaged, locked and loaded, C1...however it is being phrased these days.
the other is a Kel-Tec P-11--10 +1 which means with a round chambered. my P239/40-357sig-9mm has been retired and is being readied for sale. offers?

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.

Never said they did it all the time, but they are instructed to in certain situations as verified earlier in this thread - so no, it's not incorrect. I should add 'at times' or something along those lines.
