How would you argue this?
I've recently had a few debates/discussions with my father about carry options. Not in so much of should carry vs. should not (in fact he was the one who encouraged me to take the CCW course in the first place) but loaded vs. unloaded.
He always chides me for carrying loaded (whether chambered or not), saying that "You should never carry loaded. It's not safe." Even stating that his CCW instructor pressed that point on the class; to not carry loaded. That it "takes 3 seconds to load" is reason enough to not carry loaded. He also always ends up responding with "Take a basic pistol safety course. They'll all tell you never carry loaded."
I've tried telling him "You don't always have 3 seconds to load" or "If you need to use it, the threat isn't going to wait for you to load" Et cetera, et cetera. But it doesn't get through to him.
So I'm at a loss of how to actually get my point across to him. Suggestions?
