I kinda use condition 1 for home defense, thought about it for when I carry, what do you guys think?
I'm kinda a noob, but it seems to me if anything, that would be reversed. In the safety of your own home it would be more diffcult for someone to "get the jump on you". Whereas out and about, you may be more vulnerable to a surprise or an ambush. Of course, that's just my opinion. I agree that a person should carry the way they feel good about. Just for the record... I carry condition one always.

Same exact thing here only at 6am, and in az...lolDevilDawg235 said:Even when I walk out of my apt at 4:30Am here in Orlando ( about 30 yards ) to my car, its always got one chambered. Once I get to my job's parking lot, it goes in the glove box.
I'm torn in this. I've carried in C-3 all my life. It was part of my earliest training and I guess I have developed a sense of added safety in C-3 mode. I realize this is not for everyone (such as Mom's with small children on and about their person), but my mind tells me that for "me", Condition One makes the most sense to accommodate the dangers in which I wish to be ready for.
I think I need to step up my awareness and readiness to C-1. Something to seriously consider.
I understand your concern and felt the same for a very brief time.I kinda use condition 1 for home defense, thought about it for when I carry, what do you guys think?
I understand your concern and felt the same for a very brief time.
Carrying a loaded firearm has to be done correctly because you understand the implications of your actions and I applaude that.
The matter of being comfortable with carry in condition 1 is a learned trate, just like the first time you go out into the public with a concealed weaponstrapped on, you just, "feel different." That is your senses telling you in a light fight or flight mode. But you got used to it and are now pretty comfortable with CW carry so you are at ease with it.
Carrying in condition 1 requires you to have more training and go thur more 'feeling different" stuff because now you will be toting a live weapon. Again, your senses will kick in because you know the gun is ready to fire. It doesn't matter if anyone else does it only matters to you because you are accountable for that gun and any action it brings to the fight.
To carry a loaded ready to fire GLOCK you have to have a holster that completely encases the trigger and firmly prevents the pulling of that trigger. Keydex comes to mind here. Personally, I did away with leather for several reasons but that's me.
Training inculdes learning how to, draw that weapon without distrubing the trigger
How to holster that weapon hot
How to load and unload that weapon
and confidence that you can do it and that the weapon remains unaffected/safe during your daily activites.
Ther are times in my daily activities that I have to disarm because of my state laws. I never unload my weapon, I just transfer it from my carry holster and place it into my vehicle holster. It can be a challenge to do this in a public place with being seen. Again too, ti taks practice to accomplish smoothly and with confidence.
