    One in the chamber?

    I was just wondering what everyone thinks about having one ready in the chamber. Is it safe? Is it crazy not to? What are your thoughts?

    Don't feel scared to search. Seen a few topics on this already and I think the majority agree that you should get the confidence to carry one in the chamber because you're going to need it. You're not guaranteed to have time to rack the slide in a life or death scenario

    When I carried Glocks, it was with one in the chamber and the gun holstered. I now carry CZ 75's and it's Cocked and Locked. It is safe if you use a good holster and keep the gun in the holster and your finger off the trigger unless you are about to fire the weapon. Without one in the chamber you are betting your life that you will have time to rack the slide in time. It's really a personal decision - good luck. OH and btw, the bad guy is going to have one in the chamber.

    I agree with the above! You'll feel comfortable quickly if you train that way, and develop the confidence to do so. BTW, welcome!

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
