Things have changed over the last 5 years.
If you have a reasonable cause, apply again.


716 civilian permits in San Diego in 2011.
Compared to 1627 in San Bernardino, which is as close to "shall issue" as it gets, along with a few other counties, in California.

Interesting that San Francisco went from 1 to 0.
Dianne must have finally changed her county of residence.

always keep on in the chamber while carrying. Its takes that much longer to get the gun cocked if you ever need to use it. In those few seconds your target/threat may already beating the crap out of you haha. Its all about saving time because in a real life situation you prob wont have much of it.

I carry a 1911, in condition one. Cocked and locked. The only time. I would ever say carry without a round in the chamber is if you carry in a cross draw or shoulder rig, every time I have seen those drawn from a holster the gun muzzle sweeps your entire right or left side when it is being deployed. I carry and recommend a strong side carry with a round in the chamber

I carried for a few months without one in the chamber just to get comfortable with the firearm.

Now I always carry with one in the pipe after I realized the trigger would never accidentally get pressed.

IKR. The only time my EDC ever comes out of the holster is for cleaning or shooting.

Keep your finger off the trigger until you acquire your target. Too much time advantage for the bad guy if you have to rack a round. Lock and load.

Nope, because ND's happen. Working in a career where such an ND would get you fired and blacklisted, I always scratch that step.

I am not aware of any modern autoloading handguns that don't have safeties or a very long, heavy DA only trigger.

Depends on what I'm carrying. My Sig P229, yes. My Kel-Tec P3AT, no. There's no safety or de-cock.

no round chambered. If you are carrying holstered and getting into situations to have to send lead down range without chambering, is typically LEO or military. Having a loaded weapon, mentally should have situational awareness and scan to get focused.

Some states will see having a chambered round negatively at the same time seeing that you chambered a round also negative. its all opinions and personal preference, but for testosterone fueled beings, best idea is to keep it not chambered. It gives all of you another chance to think what you are doing before chambering, changing selector switch and pulling the trigger.
