I also just reread your post. When I saw the word Fobus, I know there is no getting through to you. Definite training, gear, clothing, and attitude problem. People like you are the ones who end up shooting themselves and blaming it on the gun.

You didn't know? If you have blackhawk stuff, that's make you a certified B.A. All those hours of M.W. pay off you know.

My sig on the other hand this could be an option. But what if it slipped? Didn't catch the first time? I'll keep it chambered knowing all I have to do is squeeze and it will shoot.
That's why I don't care for the FLGR on the 1911 and replaced the set on my RIA Tactical with GI parts.

Rather than the sight, you can rack the 1911 by slapping the recoil spring plug on a dress shoe heel, edge of a table, or a block wall... any hard surface edge.

I make the conscious choice to carry without a round in the tube. Its my fucking choice.

M&P pistols usually dont have a safety. If my model did, i would be fine carrying loaded. Unfortunately, mine does not.

The only "safety" to my firearm, is the bottom trigger pivot. Thats it. That is extremely easy to pull if a errant zipper pull tab managed to get into the trigger area. Its a extremely unlikely scenario, but its enough to make me feel uncomfortable to carry in the tube. My fobus rides high enough to cover the trigger area, but its still a concern.

Dont come at me with this "holier than thou" bullshit, and then tack on "poor handling of firearms" to make yourself feel better. If you dont agree, say it as such. Dont pretend you are chris costa, and you know everything about concealed carry. Comfort > Opinion.
Perceived Safety<Facts and proper training. Respectfully I don't agree with you. You don't have to be Chris Costa to be able to know how deploy a loaded concealed handgun and apparently neither do the other 351 people that feel that way.

When i begin to carry, I plan on taking a full day class before buying a handgun, Then becoming 100% comfortable with my gun. Then il start carrying with a round. i just wouldnt even attempt it if i wasnt fully confident in my gun control.

Good call on taking a class before buying. I've seen people buying handguns and didn't even know which type of bullets they needed!

lol i have a cm40, and totally agree. slide is so stiff. its broken in a bit now that i have about 500 rounds through it, but still very stiff. when i first bought it, it was almost painful racking the slide ha.

no safety on the gun, but the trigger pull is long and a bit heavy. i carry with one chambered at all times. pocket holster.

my cw40 and cm9 feel similar and i see no reason to not have a round chambered. I really like my Kahrs. Remember you can use +p in the kahrs. idk about others.

Always. If you need a CCW pistol... chances are, you're not going to have the time to take it out and rack the slide to chamber a round first. Nor, with all the adrenaline pumping, are you likely to remember to do so unless you practice doing it that way like crazy.

I hate when I go to a sporting goods store that sells handguns or any gun at that and people that obviously have 0 experience with any type of fire arm flash everyone in the store and have thier finger wrapped around the trigger. They would do the same thing with it loaded and not know the difference.

Monday, two people met at the homedepot literally right behind my house to conduct a craigslist transaction.

The buyer pulled a weapon for whatever reason. The seller pulled his weapon, shot, and killed the threat. In such a circumstance, i would be very happy to have one chambered. Yes many may argue that chambering a round takes mile seconds, but after staring down the barrel of a weapon during armed robberies, I simply do NOT want to take that time to chamber a round.

I am usually carrying 99% of the time. but most dont know it. (minus work and marked places)

I concealed-carry a .40 Sig P239. I always carry 7 Federal HSTs in the mag and another one in the pipe. In my opinion, the Sig decocking/safety system is as safe of a "one in the pipe" system you can get without a true mechanical safety. It will NOT discharge unless you pull the trigger all the way. And who wants to fiddle with a mechanical safety when one second can determine whether you/your family or the bad guy has a really bad day? Oh yeah, and then there's that whole rock-solid reliability inherent to Sigs as well.
