    I carried a Glock 17 in a duty holster for over a decade, and a Glock 26 off duty.

    The holster is your first safety, your trigger finger is the second safety. Training training training to keep your finger off the trigger until your ready to fire, then remove it from the trigger.

    Remember it takes repeating the same procedure, 1500 times for it to become muscle memory.

    So get some range time in.

    I have found that if someone doesn't trust themselves with a loaded gun, I shouldn't either. Keep carrying it empty please.

    I'd just prefer that they wear a red had or something at the range so I know who to worry about before I see the poor gun handling and figure it out.

    What's a "dud"?

    Yep, I am familiar with the term "Israeli carry". And yes, I also firmly believe that people should do what they believe works best for them, which I stated in another related post. But that does not erase my feelings, and those of most everyone else on this site, about the sheer ignorance and stupidity of carrying a sidearm that is not in full battery while thinking you will be just fine if you have to use that weapon. I stand by my statements on this. Am I being judgmental? No, not at all. I equate this to driving a car without any tires on the wheels. Sure you can drive it. But your ability to accelerate, brake, and corner is drastically impacted by your actions.

    Other than that, welcome aboard. We're happy to have you with us.

    Wonder whether the unholstered Glock is shoved in a pocket or their waistband.
    I suppose it (empty chamber Glock) could also be unholstered in their purse.

    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
    "Wouldn't want to or Nobody volunteer to" get shot by _____ is not indicative of quickly incapacitating.

    I've decided after reading this thread carefully to start carrying my gun unloaded. It'll be safer, and chances are 99.5% that I'll never need it anyway. If I ever do need it, just drawing it out of the holster will cause 99% of BGs to run away.

    Does this technique work if there isn't a Village People song playing in the background? ;)

    Sorry, this is me not helping... tired and cranky today.
