    Should a CCW Officer Carry a loaded weapon (bullet in barrel) while on post?

    Although we all know that carrying your weapon loaded while on post is standard for police work - is it necessary or even legally right to do so while working part time as a CCW officer or a private security company?

    I have heard on several occasions that guns were discharge in a store or business and I am not sure why there are no regulations as far as how should a CCW carry his / her weapon while working or a private company.

    If there are such regulations, please post a link with your reply

    I appreciate your help

    Why would anyone who is carrying a firearm for self defense or defense of others carry it without a round in the chamber? If you are not going to carry a round in the chamber you would be better off carrying a baseball bat.

    The OP is from Los Angelis. Are are you confusing California's unloaded open carry with conceiled carry?

    Iam sorry but iam not sure what a CCW officer is
    As far as carrying an empty pistol, you might as well be carrying a small stick
    Always carry loaded, your life may depend on those few vital seconds your trying to chamber a round

    OK, if this is not trolling you will have to explain and clarify you post as it makes very little sense as written.

    CCW officer? Have we all been promoted?

    NO, a "CCW Officer" should never carry a firearm with a "bullet in [the] barrel". If he does carry his weapon with a bullet in the barrel, and he then fires it, a bulged or ruptured barrel (at a minimum) would almost certainly result. This is not desirable at all. Please tell this CCW Officer, in no uncertain terms, to remove the bullet that is lodged in his barrel, and then he will be good to go.

    I beleive an CCW officer must carry the bullet in his pocket and throw it at the BG at 950 fps.
