Always ready to go, LCP or XDs9.
I just don't understand carrying with no round chambered. Some say it's quick to rack the slide, but what if they have grabbed the racking arm?
Same as my SW.
If I am in a store and some crackhead is robbing the place I don't want it hearing me chamber a round.
My 1911 is always cocked, locked and ready to rock. My strikers all have one in the chamber and the cylinders are all full on my wheelies.
So you carry a paper weight... Not being a jerk, but an unloaded gun is useless except as a bad club. What are you going to do if youre injured first? What if youre carrying something or your child? If you are that worried about an ND, train more.
I carry locked and loaded. Whether its my PT111G2 (one in the pipe, safety on), my LCP (one in the pipe, 50lb trigger), or my mini revolver (all chambers loaded, hammer in safety notch on cylender). Why? because Im carrying a gun, not a club.
Doesn't the Military/Police in Israel carry on an empty chamber?
EDC and BUG - Condition 2
Only after confronting a suspected bad guy .
I carry cocked, and locked, and I carry hammer down, and a live round under the hammer. Depends on which gun I'm carrying. 1911 style guns, cocked and locked. DA guns, one in the chamber, hammer down. I do not like to mix carrying pistols that operate differently. To much to remember! You shouldn't have to think about do I disengage the safety, or just pull the trigger? When I make the switch, I spend quite a bit of time practicing with the gun I will be carrying for the next year, or so. I don't carry a 1911 one day, and a Beretta, or a Walther, the next day.
Ive noticed that when I draw my LCP, my thumb still sweeps down for the safety as I draw.
And reaching for that safety is time lost in a gun fight! On the other hand, you might be carrying a pistol with a safety, thinking you are carrying a DA pistol, and forget to disengage the safety. Carry one, or the other.
No lost time, as it happens during draw. I agree that carrying similar platforms is best, with the only difference in my main carrys being a safety.
A BUG does not have to have the same trigger as your EDC. Mix and match here. But the gun you go to first had better be the one you practice with!
Is it just me or what-
I've always connect the term "hot zone" with war-time when you are almost certain of being engaged by an enemy. I personally, don't know of any "Hot Zones" here in the USA. Crime is everywhere and you can be a victim of such a crime anywhere & anytime. (See it everyday on the news)
I sure would love to know where the "SAFE" Zones are in our country. Where are the places you feel 100% CERTAIN you are completely safe? (I may need to move.)
Where are these "Hot Zones" you speak of? (I want to be sure to avoid them at all costs!)
Double action semi auto fully loaded. No external safety.
