Amen to that.I work at a gun shop and I NEVER hand over a gun with the action closed. Additionally, I NEVER walk around with a gun with a closed action, even if I'm just looking to see if we have another of the same in stock. It's just plain rude. I know it's empty but you don't.
When giving CHL classes all students are taught that all slides will be locked back with no magazines and revolvers open at all times. We've had great success with that. I suppose that outlining the expectations early and enforcing them makes a difference as it is very rare that we have to "remind" someone to comply.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

I recently showed my new snub to a friend. The first thing she did was do the wrist thing to close the action (must be some official term for that) and then covered me with the muzzle as she swept her arm around. Yikes! After I explained to her basic safety she proceeded to tell me she was experienced and had been shooting for years.
