I agree with Charles.
And it may be apocryphal, but I've been told that IDF uses the "condition 3" method because they don't trust minimally trained draftees to safely operate semi-auto handguns. Which kind of begs the question of why they arm them with such.
Additionally there are different reasons for carrying firearms for a soldier and a citizen who is outside a war zone.
From my readings, Condition 3 is also the carry method of the majority of the worls's Police Departments.....War Zone?
Then most of the worlds police departments are stupid, or don't care to have rapid access to their sidearms. Really why not carry a revolver with two empty chambers. Makes about as much sense as carrying a semi-auto with an empty chamber. Soldiers on the other hand presumably have some warning when they are about to go into combat or a combat zone, at which time I understand they usually charge their weapons.
