Curious to see feedback on whether folks routinely carry semi-auto chambered during routine carry. I recognize there are issues that may or may not influence certain situations, such as considering the 1-2 seconds it would take to chamber in an encounter, as well as the issue of whether you even have a free hand to ratchet the slide, versus the 'hot' weapon at all times.
Just really pingin' for input here, because as I stated, I know there are so many unknown factors related to a possible situation, but the question relates to SAs that do not have the de-cocking capability. Hot at all times.
So, if you would please simply comment on your feelings about carrying hot vs the 1-2 seconds it would take to chamber.
Do you carry piped or not?
Thanks, and be safe!
