    I always carry with a round chambered and the mag full. If the gun has a M1911-style safety, I'll carry with the safety on. If it's a traditional double-action, then I'll decock.

    I try to keep the process of getting the gun into action as consistent as I can, no matter what gun I'm carrying.

    Always one in the chamber. I never use external safeties. It is either a Glock type firearm or it has a decocker.

    Taurus PT111 - 1 in the pipe, full mag, safety engaged. There is not an external hammer.

    The ruger p89 when carried was carried with an empty chamber but if carried from now on will be carried one in the pipe and the decocker/safety engaged.

    I carry either an XD .40, Glock 23, or occasionally a Taurus PT-111 or Taurus PT-99. All are carried with a round in the chamber as they are designed to be carried. With any quality modern DA semi auto handgun, they are designed to be carried with a round in the chamber.

    To carry with an empty chamber is equal to carrying a hammer or brick because you will not have time to draw and rack the slide to get that round where it should have already been in time to put the gun into action to save your life or the lives of your loved ones.

    If I'm going to carry ANYTHING for SD, it's going to be ready to go...only the finger application away from delivery.

    and another in my Comp-Tac mag holder, practice builds confidence, keep your fire arm in top notch working condition, and did I already say practice, and I mean every day, so if the time comes your brain and hands will be linked together.
    It's easier to avoid trouble than it is to get out of it.

    9+1 or 8+1 (with 9 round mags) should take care of the threat. There is always a spare nearby.
    Next time you take your Glock magazines apart for cleaning file about 1/32 of an inch off the bottom of the follower. That will fix the problem with getting the last round in. In some extreme cases you may need to take off 1/16 of an inch.

    A Butler Creek LULA pistol magazine loader will also put the last round into the Glock magazine, whether you file down the follower or not.
