    Am I showing my age or region by still not understanding the question?

    Carrying what up where? ;)

    I honestly have NEVER heard of carrying with a round in the chamber as being referred to "one up"?

    That being said, i carry with one in the chamber.

    Ah... gotcha. so it' a regional term. learn something new everyday.

    I was hoping it wasn't one of those "so THAT'S what the kids are calling it these days" moments. :D

    Unless you practice racking as you draw and you're very proficient at it, I'd say one in the chamber is the way to go.

  9. I always carry with one in the chamber although with my 10 round G30 mags I'll normally be "one down" in the mag so it'll seat easily. So, I'm actually 9+1 instead of 10+1. Still, if I can't get the job done with 10 rounds of 45acp it's a job that I shouldn't have took in the first place,LOL.
     
  10. Plus 1 extensions on my mags for my 26 + 1 chambered for a total of 12 rounds

    Carry with one up? Interesting way to put it......

    I always have one up when I sleep too, within reach, on the nightstand, that is.

    Always.
    In an emergency, you may not have time to rack the slide.
