    1 In The Chamber?

    Do you prefer to carry with a round in the chamber? I personally choose to myself but I was just curious how other people felt on the issue.

    Well, you just opened the floodgates...this topic is similar to "9mm vs. .45 ACP", "Open Carry", or a number of others...could be a record-setter in thread length before it's over....

    To stay on topic, yes I always carry with one in the pipe. Why? Because if I'm in an armed encounter I can't call for a time out to rack the slide...

    In my view, there's not much point in carrying if you don't have one in the pipe.

    As much as it is PITA to unload it in the car when I have to stow it, I don't myself being able to pull it, rack it and then shoot in one smooth motion in an emergency. So, I carry with one in the pipe.

    What good is an empty chamber?


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    My gun was too expensive to throw at someone so I keep one chambered.

    I always carry with one in the pipe. Guns are too expensive to use them as bats.
