Re: Should you carry a round in the chamber?
what's the 'knife' distance that was proven in court years ago? 21' I believe, in the average time it takes the average person (cop actually) to draw their weapon?
can't imagine needing to rack a round on top of that, and of course assuming that you have two working arms/hands. you get shot/stabbed in one arm, how'r you going to rack that round? sure, there's the one handed, rack the gun by using the rear sight, but it's not very reliable.
people that think they'll have time to rack a round or retrieve a gun out of their glove box or any other un-handy place, have obviously never needed a gun to defend their lives or been in an oh-crap situation.
