It would be if you were tasked with watching out for me or someone I cared for. At least thats the way I see it.Maybe I am taking this post the wrong way, it just seems that how a person wants to carry is none of any one's business.
thanks BillIt's okay to carry on an empty chamber, as long as you have the safety on & a trigger lock too. That way nothing can ever happen. :thumb:
I agree in this scenarioIt would be if you were tasked with watching out for me or someone I cared for. At least thats the way I see it.
Most people are not professionals and the title of the thread makes no mention of professional.Just shows a lack of professionalism. Then again, how many professionals carry that way? Do you suppose any of the SS watching over Trump are doing so with an unloaded gun in their holster?
I agree. but shouldn't it be up to the individual to determine what is best for them?You may not be a "professional", but it is still your responsibility to be as professional as possible when youre carrying/using that gun. After all, whatever happens with it, is on you. :thumb:
I agree.Considering people like to throw statistics around so much, and that "rule of three" stat seems to be so popular, if "most" interactions are at close range, what do you suppose the odds are, or chance is, that you might need that off hand to deal with other things while you need to get that gun into action at the same time?
When it's in the safe or off your body.There are times when that chamber needs to be empty
When you place it in holster and strap it on.But then there's times to be cocked and locked!
It's really not rocket surgeryIt's up to YOU to figure out when!
You "carried" that M37 with an empty chamber after you grabbed it and exited the cruiser?I can see carrying the Ithaca 37 with its chamber empty, in "cruiser-ready" condition, the way I was taught, but DA wheelguns need no such precaution. I quit carrying single-action cowboy guns with the hammer down on the empty chamber as EDC about 1970... But the transfer-bar Ruger single-actions provide "Six for Sure" and are much better impact weapons than the S&W K-frame.
The argument seems to be from the holster to that point. If you actually get there, under "all" conditions anyway.I cannot think of a reason, that I would carry any gun, for defense, and not have it 100% ready to fire when I bring it to bear.
You forgot "and in a safe". All that going on and the only one worrying about getting shot is yourself. Bad guys will remain safe and sound!It's okay to carry on an empty chamber, as long as you have the safety on & a trigger lock too. That way nothing can ever happen. :thumb:
