Do you prefer to carry with one in the chamber? If so why? and if you don't why not?...
It just amazes me how this topic even comes up on the different boards. Your attacker is going to have one in the chamber. He/she has a serious advantage over you if you don't. You might as well carry a rock, because your only option you will have time for is going to be to throw it, anyway.Do you prefer to carry with one in the chamber?

Pretty much exactly how I feel. I used to think I would only carry when I was going to be in sketchy areas. Man I was wrong. Stuff happens all over and you'll never know when. I am not going to live with guilt because I didn't "think" I would need it.LOAD IT, OR LEAVE IT AT HOME.
I also believe you should always have your weapon chambered but I think this person may be asking from a safety point of view considering all the accidental discharge stories associated with glocks. I carry a gen 2 glock 22 and feel safe but that is in a good holster with the trigger covered and tons of practice. For a beginner, I would suggest they use a pistol with a grip and trigger safety until they reach a confidence level that allows them to feel safe chambering a glock. Lack of training, a cheap holster with access to the trigger and gittery nerves have caused more than one person to shoot themselves going for their glock.
