I CC a Glock 26 everyday....with one in the pipe.....I also have a S&W SD9 in vehicle(one in the pipe).....being left handed, I want access to a firearm with my right hand in case my left hand/arm becomes disabled for some reason.

I once shoved a 12ga shell up someone's tail pipe to thank him for making a hole in my bumper with his failure hitch.

I reading some of the post I really think some of you should reconsider how you handle your weapons

My Glocks are kept in my holster all the time except 1.when cleaning (which I never do) 2.At the range training 3.In a gun fight. I do not PUT my Glock into its holster any other times period. I pick up my holstered pistol and put on my IWB Comptac infidel, snap the loops and I am set. If I need to remove the pistol I just take of the holster and LEAVE the pistol all warm and snug in its bed. This is the preferred method and can be used paddle and even fixed loop although you will have to remove your belt. That why I like snaps, I also carry two fanny packs (don't laugh) one has a Khar and the other a Glock 23. Both stay in the pouches until called upon, and I can deploy in about 1 sec. They are so handy I use them all the time, I even carry my cell phone and spare mags. Yes we should exercise trigger awareness but sometime the brain does not work so we put into place extra safety things.

:iagree: all of my SD weapons are loaded and holstered. Even if they are sitting in the safe they are still holstered.

Why carry a gun if it's not going to go bang when you pull the trigger?

I don't think it's such a bad idea if you're getting use to carrying it around your house while getting used to, but if you're going to bring it out in public, you should be comfortable enough to carry with one chambered.

"I just don't feel safe without one in the chamber."
Just like we were told, be familiar with your preferred gun and exercise, draw, shoot and re holster. It is all about the proper drill, discipline and awareness training.

A gun without a chambered round is a club.

Always one in the chamber + full magazine. IMO, why not? But if you're not comfortable with one in the chamber, don't do it.
