    No safety. one in the pipe?

    I alternately carry two different weapons, a 9m Ruger P89 and a Keltec P3AT .380. The Keltec does not have a safety and I am undecided whether to carry it with a round in the pipe. I know having to rack it will slow down response time in an emergency, but I am concerned about whether it could accidentally go off while drawing it. I always have one in the pipe with the Ruger. Thoughts?

    Accidently..No.
    Through negligence and not enough training...Yes
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    There a pretty lengthy thread running here that covers pretty much every angle of this topic

    POLL - Do you carry: With a round chambered - No round in chamber
