    I prefer to have my 1911's safety in the safe position in my holster (C1) rather than the fire position (C0).

    I think it's incredibly short-sighted and naive to think every person on this forum or the public in general is qualified to carry a gun with one in the pipe but I defend your right to do so. Just like alot of things in the world, it's not against the law to do it but is it always right?

    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.

    OK, last time. Enough with the chamber empty vs. chamber loaded crap. You can state why you carry the way you do, but cut the crap.

    I think it is extremely irresponsible to not atleast have the chambered all the time folks put a disclaimer that only if you are fully qualified to do so and own a holster designed for the action be added to every post. It takes one big dummy who has not been trained properly to put a black eye on the whole CCW movement. Just because you are qualified to get a CCW (probably 90% of Adults in America are) Does not qualify you to carry one chambered or make you a gun pro.

    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 first two sentences are right on...carry an unloaded weapon if you want to. Its your life and your decision. The third sentence is incorrect. I know that USAF SF (SPs) carry their M9 with a round chambered and the safety off. The first round is double action. I will admit that when deployed, our Army counterparts were made to carry their weapons (M9/M16.M60) unloaded with the rounds separate unless in a combat area.
    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.
