    S&W 638 - revolver, so no real issue. though i could leave it cocked, i don't. dunno if that actually constitutes condition 2, as its apples and oranges

    both XD's (40SC and 45compact) - just waiting on me to stick my finger where the sun don't shine....

    1911 - cocked and locked, cond 1, because otherwise, its just an club... although, with some holsters, i haveta be more aware of the safety than with others. getting in and out of the car and some other activities, i've made the uncomfortable observation that my ambidextrous safety occassionally gets turned down. im looking for solutions....

    ruger P series - made the mistake of trading in my DC model... man, i loved that feature. but again, any pistol with an empty chamber is a waste of space

    Condition 3 at my place.

    Condition 1 anywhere else.*




    The first time I carried in public I carried condition 3. I was nervous.

    Between my husband and myself we own six 1911s. My carry gun is a Kimber Ultra CDP 1911. 99.999% of the time it is condition one, cocked and locked. That other 0.001% of the time it cocked and unlocked. I have unwavering faith in my handgun. I know that my gun will never do anything I have not made it do and the grip safety and the fact that my holsters protect against trigger manipulation.

    Not long ago, at the shop, I was reaching for a box and my gun became visible, like the guy in the article, a concerned customer said, "Do you know that the hammer is back on your gun?"
    "Certainly," I said, "It's a 1911. I wouldn't carry it any other way."

    Doa search on cocked and locked you will see it has been discussed a lot along with do you carry one in the chamber ..

    That said i carry it C&L no point anyother way .. now if i was packing in that smart carry with the muzzle pointing at my Tool i think i would rethink Cocked and locked..

    1911 - Condition 1. It's already been said, but I'll say it again to help drill it in. Carrying a gun in Condition 3 will get you killed. What's that you say? How's it get you killed if it's not even loaded? EXACTLY!!! A gun in Condition 3 is only as good as a bludgeon. Have your friends practice with you with airsoft guns or water pistols playing the bad guys. I'd be willing to bet the farm you'll "die" every time, even KNOWING when the attack is coming!

    I carry my Glock with one in the chamber ready to go. Before that I carried my USP cocked and locked.

    I certainly wouldn't rely on the sound of chambering a shotgun shell to scare off an opponent. However, there are good reasons for storing/carrying a shotgun without a round in the chamber. Without a round in the chamber you can store it with the firing pin spring at rest, rather than under tension. Also, most shotgun safeties only block trigger movement, rather than blocking the firing mechanism, so a shotgun in condition one isn't quite as safe as a good handgun or military rifle.

    While I'm a died in the wool Condition One guy, I'm not so sure that Condition Three is such a "death wish".

    One of the guys I shoot a bi-monthly combat pistol match with starts every scenario in Condition Three with a Glock. He also carries it that way. He is pretty freaking fast, probably faster on his first shot than 75% of the guys there. As a matter of fact I shot with him for 3 months before I had any idea he was doing it. Then I started watching him, fast and smooth.

    I asked him why he carried that way and he told me with small kids in the house he just felt better with the extra precaution. So he practiced that way at the matches.

    We're shooting again this WED and if I remember I'll try to get some of his times.
