Thank you, too!

I'm definitely more of a high-drag/low-speed type , just a regular civvie, but I keep all of my SD/HD handguns in "Condition 1," in holsters inside the quick-access safes, so when I transfer my firearm from my in-safe holster to my body for carry, I press-check, just to make sure.
This is after several class sessions where the instructors smartly asked if I was sure I was ready, and I said "yes," and proceeded to embarrass myself by drawing and attempting to fire a pistol that did not have a round chambered: thus driving home the importance of *always* press-checking.
