I would rather have a single round ready to go.
I would rather have an empty chamber with a full mag.
My CZ P-01 is 14+1. Would I rather have 1 round, which I chamber? Or, would I rather have 14 rounds, which I need to chamber? 14, of course, 'cause I'd prefer not to have a one-shot club in my hand.
Now, if you meant 14+1 chambered, vs 14 but needing to chamber the first, then the answer's the opposite ... always chambered, with a full magazine, with spares.
I donít believe in the no-win scenario
What you described in your choices for me would be just that a no-win.
Condition One: A round chambered, hammer cocked, safety on, full mag.
Or I stay home until I have come to my senses

So many complaints about the poll... who would have thought that the gun owners of America were without imagination and can't work within the bounds of their situation? Tisk tisk... The tactical scenarios are way worse than this, but take it like that. You are walking along, you need a gun (use whatever scenario you want), do you want 0+1 or 12+0?
I will take more ammo any day. Doesn't take long to chamber a round. I can chamber a round while moving towards cover which I would be doing anyway. If the bad guy has that good a jump on you that you cannot even chamber a round, you might flub your first shot anyway.

Thanis, pretty funny, how about I take CPT Kirk and his homemade bazooka and homemade gun powder over the 1+0.

I know gun dealers that sometimes carry a 2 shot firearm (not much different then only 1 in the chamber). This is not that hard of a question.
All the posts about how this is an unanswerable question...
Most who are complaining, I'm sure I could find a post from you somewhere were you said, "...something is better then nothing."
If the moon was made of cheese, would you eat it? It is a simple question, just play along. If the moon was mad of barbeque spare ribs would you eat it? I know I would. I wash it down with a nice cold budweiser. SNL / Will Farrell imitation of Harry Carey.
Lock and load...........
Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
Actually, "stretching the imagination" the poll is not so far fetched.
The reason I say that is that folks have unknowingly had a magazine eject from the pistol while the pistol was still holstered.
Twice I have heard of it happening to Law Enforcement - I believe either during scuffles or during a hot/heavy BG chase.
That being said in a surprise SHTF scenario - I would rather have one in the chamber.
i think i would an empty chamber and full mag.
reason being, if you have two or three b.g.s
and one round, you have trouble or define the
world of physics and take out two or three
b.g.s in one shot. i don't think so.
interesting post. hard to respond unless you're
put to the test. one round in the chamber is
great but i would like to know that round two
is there if i need it.
