    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!

    You cant own a certain magazine for a weapon, But buying a handgun without previous experience and or training... Why not?! what could go wrong?!???

    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.

    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. FS to go a good home. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    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.

    A thumb safety is disengaged on the draw stroke. It incurs no time penalty.

    My first Sig 1911 had a frame hardness problem, and a broken extractor. The thumb safety was displacing metal on the opposite side of the frame. I sent them pictures, with the areas circled, and a detailed description. They sent it back with a new extractor, and nothing else They eventually replaced my gun, but I was not impressed. I loved the old and new one, but I never want to deal with their CS again.

    A chambered round would not have helped that woman - the invader kicked in the door and was on her in seconds. Unless she was carrying a weapon ON her person, and it was IMMEDIATELY accessible, she would not have been able stop him.

    It was a "tongue in cheek" comment ... but had no icon for it ... :confused:.

    IIRC, once she heard the door crash ... if she would have had quick access to a weapon ... she had time to "rack a round" or "pull a slide".

    The secret is what my buddy does and some on here do ... hide weapons all over the house for quick access ... :D
