    How do you carry your Glock

    Those of you that carry Glocks.

    Do you carry with a round in the chamber -- ready to shoot?

    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.

    Round chambered and ready to go. I would just carry a hammer instead of a un chambered gun.

    I carry IWB, round chambered. If you have to chamber a round before you can use your weapon, you may never get the first shot off. Use a good holster that protects the trigger, practice good safe trigger discipline, and stop worrying.

    I sometimes carry a G19 with a JM Custom Kydex IWB holster with a round in the chamber. I also carry my G26 usually two days a week in an ankle holster with a round in the chamber.

    If you nee to the idea of carrying with a round chambered and it concerns you then try a snap cap for a while and see how often the gun would have fired all by itself. Does help to take away the worrie till you get used to it. And like the fellow said use a good holster that covers and protects the trigger. Don't get a shirt tail mixed up in the trigger when holstering.

    Always one in the pipe, just like I would any other gun.

    Always chambered, that's the only way I will carry. I always check the mag and do a chamber check in the morning before I put it in the holster. I carry a G23 with a full mag and one in the pipe and 2 spare mags so I have 40 rounds to deal with whatever may come.

    If one is afraid to carry a Glock with a round chambered, or any other make for that matter, then one should not be carrying that firearm.

    Or just get over it.

    Because I read about more ADs with Glocks than all other pistols combined.

    How do you carry your Glock ?




    I carried my Glock to the local LGS and traded it for a S&W.

    Every once in a while this topic rises up out of the dirt and rears its ugly head. For the life of me, I cannot imagine anyone being stupid enough to carry a sidearm that is not in full battery. Granted, it is their right to do this if they must, though I can't for the life of me understand their logic and reasoning to do this. Simply put, humans are not in any danger of going extinct so if someone decides to carry in this manner and winds up paying the ultimate price for their ignorance... Oh well. There are plenty of people left to fill that minuscule void.

    Carrying w/o round chambered

    When I carry a Glock, it is with a round chambered.

    IF one chooses not to do such and carry with the chamber empty, I would suggest they study the Israeli's IDF training techniques for placing a sidearm into action without a round initially chambered and spend significant training time practicing the techniques needed to chamber quickly.
