    Do You Carry Magazine Capacity + 1 ?

    Do you carry the "extra" round?
    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

    No, I fill the mag to capacity, and rack it, so I'm chambered.
    This option is not in the poll.

    A person can loose valuable seconds by having to chamber a round. I keep one in the pipe too...

    As someone has pointed out on this forum before, carrying without one in the chamber is as effective as carrying a brick for self-defense. Besides, with a 6 round mag capacity, the extra round is an extra opportunity to defend myself. God bless, all!

    I think that is what the 3rd option means, worded kinda off though.
