Not trying to be boastful here, just matter of fact. I know 100% of the time the status and condition of all of my weapons (i.e. where they are at, clean/dirty, loaded/unloaded, chambered/unchambered, cocked/locked/safetied, in a safe/immediately accessible, etc.). So, NO, I've never carried an empty gun. Unless I loan one of mine out to one of my buddies, I will continue my "perfect" record.
