    Exclamation Dissenting opinion, please don't flame me..

    To the original poster; it is your choice whether to carry your weapon with a round in the chamber. The manufacturer recommended that it not be stored with a round in the chamber, when you are carrying it the weapon is not stored. A Glock stored in its original molded plastic case must have the trigger pulled before it will fit.

    If your weapon has a separate safety and it takes two actions to discharge your weapon, adding the action of loading a round in the chamber will make it three steps before your weapon discharges.

    I was always raised and hunted having the "two step" method; i.e., shotgun hunting for dove, deer rifle for Bambi, etc. The safety stayed on until right before I pulled the trigger. The two step method is second nature to me. It has taken some getting used to the "one step" trigger pull and safety system of my Glock. I keep a round in the chamber at certain times (but not always) and I always know the condition of my handgun.

    There are 3 things that are impacted by not having a round in the chamber:

    1) Time it takes to discharge the weapon
    2) It takes 2 hands to load a round in the chamber
    3) The sound of racking the slide is very distinctive, and almost impossible to do in silence (especially when the adrenaline is flowing)

    It is your choice, you must understand the ramifications of the condition of your handgun and train so that you know what you will do if and when you need to bring the weapon into play.
    Yoda, I am, yes.

    All manufacturers put that warning in, anymore. As others noted, having the primary carry "hot" should be a norm. But...

    if you're storing your Glock in a safe, with other (unloaded) weapons, I would clear it. Glocks suffer fools and forgetfulness none too lightly.

    If that is the older "tupperware" box, it has that on it because the trigger has to be pulled to fit in the box, I think. Also, the manufacturer has to say that for liability, otherwise somebody out there will shoot something with an ND and then say, "Well the manufacturer didn't tell me to keep one out of the chamber, so it is thier fault."
