    I don't mean to be rude but this goes right along with the mentality of blaming guns for mass shootings. Also, I think it's simply a law of averages. People buy Glock for their stellar reputation but many are untrained in proper operation of a pistol with no manual safety. Honestly, many aren't familiar with operating a semi-auto regardless of the safety mechanisms of the weapon which is certainly a bad combination.

    Dud / Dude: I anticipate having enough advance notice of attack and both hands available to rack the slide, its a "technique".

    21 feet of distance needed from attacker with a knife, examples are with pistol OWB ready to fire.
    Trying to chamber a round, LOL.

    Glock 17, 23, 26, 27, 30s, or 43, depending on how I'm feelin' about life, all loaded, all ready to rock and roll, all in a good kydex holster, or aker leather.....never in my pocket.

    Or do you carry with chamber empty -- need to rack the slide to be ready to shoot?

    I posted a simple poll for this question.

    Hopefully only people who carry Glocks will respond to the poll.

    Everyone else can post a response if they want.
    Glocks or Glock like guns, carried with one in the chamber.

    They aren't going to go off by themselves. Carrying with an empty chamber is a bit too far from being ready for what it's made for.

    Maybe because so many people carry Glocks over any other?

    I carry my Glock 19 with a round chambered in my new Browning concealed carry purse. It's got a leather holster in it.

    I used to have a Glock 30s but sold it. Did all my usual Glock trigger and sight mods and just couldn't shoot the thing worth a damn. So I got an original gen M&P 40c, installed the Apex DCAEK but kept the stock OEM trigger spring and it is a gem. It lives in my primary carry stable and is a definite keeper.

    Of your list I have owned or still own five of them. Glocks are fine sidearms and according to one gun writer, the G23 (pre-gen4 I'm sure) is the finest combat handgun you can carry. Granted, he has a definite opinion but he is also quite knowledgeable. Still, it does all come down to what works best for the individual. One of my G23's, I have three, is certainly one of the best SD sidearms I own. I tuned the trigger, as I always do with Glocks, replaced the sights, and did a few other things and it is one excellent compact Glock.

    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.
    This is true. Itís also why Iím not sure that a gun with a light trigger pull is good for an inexperienced shooter.

    Same question.

    The issue of whether to carry with a chambered round comes up from time to time, hereabouts; and, it's always worth re-discussing.

    That said, one wonders why the question is so parochial.

    Since I'm Glockless, I have no opinion to add.
