Dayton's News Source :: Raw News - Caught On Tape: Victim Grabs Gun, Shoots Alleged Robber
Dayton Police say a man who was being robbed at a local gas station turned the table on his attackers, shooting one of them.
The actual victim is a member on the Ohio CC boards, and here is the thread. I haven't read past the first page, but at the bottom of the first page, you'll note a very significant post made by the victim. He had a Glock 36 with one in the chamber in what I believe was his car's center console. He specifically states that had he not carried with one in the chamber, he would've been toast. Even if he had the 36 on his person, I doubt he would've been able to rack the slide while trying to fight off two guys.

Although there's plenty of Mon-morning QBing to be done here, point is, we don't always know what kind of situation we'll find ourselves in, and to carry with an empty chamber is, quite frankly, foolish.
