Welcome to the forum!!! You will find both responses, for and against. For me, it would be for 1 in the chamber because you do not have time to rack one in, in a life or death situation, you might as well be dead without one in there.
Are you scared or concerned and not comfortable?Pierre said:Im kindda scared to put a round on the chamber while carrying my glock
With training it doesn't add much time to rack the slide when drawing, key word "TRAINING".
Open carry is even faster for putting rounds "down range". An extra .5 seconds isn't going to let me put that many extra rounds "down range".Adding time being the the opposite of the purpose of training "to put more rounds accurately down range faster..."
True. You need both hands, I want both hands to clear my garment. I want both hands to do a proper draw. I want both hands to clear a misfire. I want both hands to reload. I guess I have to add another .5 second so I can drop "whatever" and draw my gun.That, of course, assumes that you always have both hands available. If you can carry groceries, your kids, hold your dog's leash, etc, and still have both hands available, then I imagine you've had a third arm attached?
Or never shop, or always have someone do a carryout for you; never carry anything from house to car or car to house; don't and never will have kids; never hold your significant other's hand in public or put your arm around them; will never have or never walk or take your dog anywhere; never have to carry a briefcase, gym bag or luggage; never go to the range or always buy/rent everything when you get there so you don't have to carry a range bag; the list goes on...
No, but the point is that if it's in C1, I don't need my other hand. Yeah, I'm going to drop whatever I'm carrying, but have you ever gotten a plastic grocery bag twisted and stuck on your hand? Have your hand run through your dog's leash?Seriously, your gonna hang on to your groceries/gym bag/whatever if you have to draw your gun? Other than the kids, what else really matters? Not to mention, if I keep holding my wife's hand, I'm stopping her from drawing her gun. LOL!
The Glock has three internal safeties that will keep the weapon from discharging the round if dropped or banged around. The only way the pistol will fire is if your booger hooker is in the trigger guard when it shouldn't be or you play Joe the Gun Plumber on the internals without the proper training.Pierre said:Im kindda scared to put a round on the chamber while carrying my glock
