Yeah, yeah, and I could be hit by lightning three times too.
3wggl, may I suggest you learn to trust yourself (learn the gun handling skills needed to overcome the fear of a ND) and your gun (unless there is something broken or your gun will only fire then the trigger is pressed). I suggest you take a FOF class as soon as possible. I think it will show you why C3 carry sucks for those who take self defense serious.
Israeli pushed the unchambered round for a reason lots of the firearms their people were carrying were not safe with a round in them. If your gun is not safe loaded then get a new one. Carry a loaded gun and be ready to fight once it starts because you are already behind in the fight. I don't care how fast you are in getting that round in the chamber it takes time you don't have. And the BIG question is how good and fast are you at doing the chambering with only one hand because you could very well only have one hand to work the gun. The other one is busy fighting the BG off or it has taking a hit and of no use.
I'm sorry but I see your "assumptions" of the fight being way off base. But we all live our own life the way we see fit. So I hope you the best and that would be that you never have to actually find out if it works or not in real life situation.
Here is a video for those who think C3 is the way to carry.

He never got it loaded!
The risk of ever being in an SD scenario were you need to fire your weapon is quite low. I know playing the numbers game is a bad thing but I think it's an important consideration as there is also a risk you could have an ND that hurts or kills someone...regardless of how much you live by the 4 rules. I've read far too many articles about ND's by experienced firearm handlers to assume I'll never have one. I choose to take on a bit more SD risk to further ensure the safety of those around me, and myself, from an ND.
You probably wouldn't feel at home there. C3 is frowned upon highly.Quote:
I've never been on WarriorTalk. I just visited the site...looks like it's worth checking out.
Reason I asked is that there used to be someone on there who posted just like you...
Very good post. I've never understood carrying without a round chambered. But it's all their preference, like riding a motorcycle without a helmet. I'd rather be ready and not need it...
Not to mention, Lack of training, preconceived notions, and overall complacency are a cocktail for disaster.
