    Back with another tale of CC, this time with an added bonus

    I posted last weekend that I has CC'ed for the first time. I stated that I had not worked up my way to one in the pipe. Well I popped that cherry!! I had to make a run into town and went at it solo. I thought that Im without my wife and daughter that Im gonna do this. I racked the slide on my trusty SW990L, placing a nice fat JHP round in the chamber and slipped it back into my new leather molded holster I picked up at the gun show (perfect fit for the firearm and fit on me). Hopped into the truck and Im now WALMART bound (I have no idea what attracts firearm owners to Wally World). I shopped all over that chinese goods warehouse. Being I had my jacket on also no one knew that I had popped that "one in the pipe" cherry. I have always handled my firearms as if it was always loaded anyway, this felt good knowing I now have a tool for protection on me and not just a paper weight.

    You mean you had a round in the chamber and the gun didn't jump out of the holster and shoot someone??

    Now I must ask you, what is so different about the trip to town you just described and one you made with the wife and daughter? Does your wife or daughter regularly fondle your gun while you walk through stores? Now that you have carried with a round in the chamber and no one figured it out and no one was killed, I would think that you should be able to keep right on carrying that way.

    Good for you. As TN_Mike alluded to; keep it that way. Seconds are precious if you ever need em.

    No. They dont mess with the gun at all. I guess it was one of those "AH, why dont I do this" moments. My daughter is 2 and I make sure that my firearms are well out of her reach and because of that she pays no attention that I have mine on. I guess them not being with me really didnt make my choice to try it. I just thought why the hell not, If Im gonna carry this hunk of metal on me it better be of some use if the time arrives. Having my firearm ready to rock is a big step for someone who really never carried in the past. Its a big responsibility to carry a gun and is one I do not take lightly.

    If you're uncomfortable with a semi auto, buy a revolver, but carrying without a chambered round is like wiping before you poop
    And so when man and horse go down beneath a saber keen, or in a roaring charge of fierce melee you stop a bullet clean, and the hostiles come to get your scalp, just empty your canteen, put your pistol to your head and go to Fiddlers green. U.S Army Cavalry

    I was really at ease while carrying it today while chambered. I really like my new holster that I got this past weekend. My pistol is hard to buy a holster for (SW990L full frame). I took it to the gun show last weekend so I could fit it to whatever holster merchants I came across. I found a nice hard leather holster made by a local and even though it was fitted for a XD .45 it fit my smith perfect. I felt better having this and not the holster kings universal fit that I had. This allowed me to rest easy about carrying a loaded firearm.

    I have to admit, having a handgun with a round in the chamber pointed at my leg gave me pause too. But I'm getting used to it.

    Good for you. That is the right mindset.

    I had to draw for real in 2009 while pumping gas in Memphis TN. Gang member was in the process of reaching for a gun in his over sized baggy pants. I beat him to the draw and he ran. I can tell you I didn't beat him by much and had I needed to stop and rack the slide I doubt I would have won. That is, *if* I didn't bobble the whole thing and drop the gun since I was going through an adrenaline dump at the moment!

    Keep it ready to go to work on a split seconds notice. That's the way it is designed to be carried.
