Aim true !
It's a good post. :thumbsup:
Well, you surely don't want to die, from a lack of shooting back, eh?:lol:As a handicapped senior citizen, unable to choose fight or flight, I must make a stand wherever I am when the SHTF. To be sure I'm ready for a worst case scenario, I keep TWO rounds in the chamber. Better safe than sorry.
I have to assume that no matter how much I practice, a lot of things are going to go to hell in a threat situation. My ability to think and remember steps will be severely diminished. It’s why I took the laser off my gun. Am I really going to remember to switch it on and find the red dot before I have to fire? No. When the need arises, you’re going to be operating on muscle memory. I know cops who have been involved in shootings. They get just as freaked when they have to draw and pull the trigger. Keep it simple.I don't. Yea I know how it sounds but I just don't. So how do you carry your firearm? What are the positives and negatives of carrying with a round in the chamber?
Yeah, I can't help feeling like carrying a glock, is like carrying a cocked revolver. Except with a cocked revolver, at least you can uncock the hammer.If you're going to carry, it makes since to have your piece with one in the chamber. I also get why some people are uncomfortable doing this, which is the reason why I won't carry something unless it's either DA or has an external safety. To each his own I say, but I would never feel right about having a safe action striker pistol pointed at my balls all day with one in the pipe. No amount of training could convince me that is a good idea after a few of the videos I've watched. Yes, these things are always caused by negligence or mistakes. With that said, I over flowed my bath tub last week after I was distracted. It made a huge mess that was totally my fault. If the penalty for spacing out on the phone while drawing a bath was getting my junk blown off, I personally wouldn't only take showers if you know what I mean.
If you don't know "the positives and negatives of carrying with a round in the chamber", may be you really shouldn't be carrying a gun in public at all.I don't. Yea I know how it sounds but I just don't. So how do you carry your firearm? What are the positives and negatives of carrying with a round in the chamber?
You just hit the main reason I never carry any pistol or revolver with a striker. With a hammer you always know where you stand. sYeah, I can't help feeling like carrying a glock, is like carrying a cocked revolver. Except with a cocked revolver, at least you can uncock the hammer.
I DO NOT ever wear a holster. I do not plan on shooting my self in the ass or the balls, so I carry revolver in my front trousers pocket. Back in the 70's a middle of the back holster but a close friend on mine in a wheel chair for about 6months. No he did not shoot himself. While fighting with a druggie making an arrest. The druggie landed on top of my buddy. The 1911 in the spine holster injured four of the lumbar vertebra iIt is fine to carry one in the chamber as long as its in a holster and you keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot :machinegun:
