    Question New XD9sc...carry for click-n-bang?

    I just got my CCW license today, I have my Springfield XD9sc, Crossbreed IWB holster, and gun belt at home. I'm ready for my Wally World Walk.

    Question is: Is it safe to carry the XD with a round chambered (which means it's cocked also)? Obviously it was the grip and trigger safetys. I know the best way to carry is ready to fire, yet it still makes me nervous.

    Do you all consider this to be a safe setup for loaded carry? Thanks!

    Yes carry with a round chambered.

    This is one of the most asked question by people new to carrying.

    If you are nervous carry it unloaded but cocked.

    You will notice at the end of the day it is still cocked.

    That's the way the gun was designed to carry. If you have to take the time to rack your gun, you've defeated the reason your carrying.

    I ALWAYS carry with a round chambered, but you shouldn't carry something that you are not comfortable with. It is absolutely safe though, no matter how you feel.

    I have two XD's for carry always keep one in the chamber, and magazine topped off. When I reholster I push the back of the slide into the holster without pressing the grip safety.

    train-train-train. know your weapon. i had my xdsc since they first came out, always carry condition 1 (one in the chamber) never had a problem. i'm with stog on the reholster.

    also, keep in mind that safeties can fail. it's rare, but it happens.

    When I reholster the xd9 I position my hand in a way where the grip safety doesnt get touched. Thats the beauty of this gun. I love the palm safety. Always carry with one in the chamber.
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    Thats what I did. Got my CHL on 1/29/09 and just the other day started to chamber a round and top off the mag while carrying. I have an M&P and wanted to make sure that after the end of the day, I was still cocked and such. I am still nervous, but it is part of the newness.

    I DAILY carry my XD-40sc fully loaded with one in the chamber, cocked and ready to go. If you don't pull the trigger..... it won't go boom.

    Yes, I think the XD 9 SC is safe to carry with one in the pipe (my normal carry mode). Otherwise, imagine saying this to someone threatening your life, "Uhh, excuse me, could you wait a second?". Wrack a round into the chamber. "OK, let's pick up where we left off...".

    No, its not safe. You should never carry a weapon with a round chambered.

    Everybody knows that guns are notorious for getting upset and pulling the trigger by themselves. How would you like to be standing at the check out line and have your gun decide to fire all by itself?

    Boy, would that be embarassing...
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
