    I carry my 24/7 Pro DS with one in the chamber, cocked and the safety on. I like a SA trigger. I guess I could carry it with one in the chamber decocked and the safety off, but that isn't the way I like it.

    My Bersa Thunder I carry with one in the chamber decocked or hammer down, and the safety off.

    When the wife's license comes back she will carry her G19 with one in the chamber. Since there isn't any decocker or safety on it, there really isn't any other option.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    FNP-9mm Has the decocker on it. So always one in the chamber.

    My G17 and G21 are carried the way they're meant to be carried- hot.

    I carry my Beretta 92F with a round chambered, hammer down, and safety off.

    Smith & Wesson 915 (9mm budget cousin of the 59, I believe): a round chambered, a full magazine, and uncocked (I rack it to load, then engage the decock/safety and then flip it back off again).

    I was concerned about someone saying they had a 59 and carried it decocked with the safety/decocker in the 'safe' position. I can quite understand the wisdom of this should there be any chance of snagging the trigger, but in a full-coverage Kydex holster it seems unnecessary. Any comments?

    1911 or not, why would anyone want to carry an empty gun?
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Baby Eagle DA/SA, full mag, 1 in the pip, decocked, safety on. Safety comes off mid draw.

    I don't like SA pistols like the 1911 because I know myself well enough to know that I'd forget the safety under stress. DAO is where it's at for me.

    My daily carry pistol is most often a Glock 19, if not the 19 I am carrying one of the Glock models...I have a large pile of plastic in the safe.

    I ALWAYS carry chambered and ready to go.

    The best active/passive safety device on the planet is betwixt the ears...."Keep the booger hook off the bang switch." ALWAYS utilize a holster that has a covered trigger guard, no matter what you may be carrying.

    If you are carrying a pot-metal wonder of modern debauchery such as a Jennings, Lorcin, Bryco, et al, etc, ad nauseum....by all means, PLEASE don't carry with a chambered round. If it is all you can afford, sell your X-Box or Wii and get a used Smith & Wesson K-Frame revolver.

    Yeah, the P-06 is on my "to buy now" list when I get home this year. Still considering the optional or in addition to, .45 FNP as well, but am waiting for someone to do a write up on how it shoots and handles. Would love to have the CZ in .45 but the last one I held many moons ago had a grip that was way too big for my hands. Just did not feel right. I did own a .45 Witness - SWEET- that was really nice in the hand and fired very accurately right out of the box. Sorry I sold it.

    All 1911 pistols carried in condition 1 "cocked and locked" - no exceptions!
    XDm has one in the tube and a full mag. Its holster covers the trigger, plus there's a grip safety. No worries.

    My HK P7: One in the chamber. Possibly the safest gun out there.
    USP CT: Most times one in the chamber, safety on, hammer half cocked. Sometimes hammer cocked. There's a small hump to get over for me to carry hammer cocked.
