    Trying to decide what style of action would be best for a CC situation

    Glock/XD crew
    Are you chambered and cocked or no? I'm not sure I like the idea of no safety and being cocked 24/7

    DA/SA crew
    are you chambered, cocked, safety on/off?

    Basically I wanna know what style gun you carry and how you carry.

    Safety is in your head.

    Once I get a holster, itll be one in the chamber with no manual safety. H&K with LEM trigger.

    Glocks and XDs are made to carry with one in the chamber, just like most DA/SA are made to be decocked with the safety on.

    The gun isn't going to go off without something in the trigger guard. If you think you will be messing with your gun during the day while carrying than it's probably not for you.
     
  6. Glocks also aren't really "cocked" with a round chambered.

    if the firing pin is back and ready to fire, then I call it cocked.

    fair enough, I guess it seems these are the only kinds of guns people CC.
     
  9. The striker (not firing pin in a Glock) is not "back and ready to fire" when a round is chambered.

    Smooth = no safety
    Safe = finger off the fucking trigger

    how hard can it be?

    With proper training and "focused" practice, you could react smoothly and safely with a Lorcin in a Fobus holster. What you need is software upgrade, not hardware.

    But here's the answer "you're" looking for. Glock 22/17 out of a Bladetech kydex IWB holster in a solid gun belt. Equally important is proper attire, trigger finger "discipline" and dry fire practice.

    As for what is the "proper" "condition" (not position). You shouldn't concern yourself with what "other" people are doing, rather it should be in the same condition you "train" in. Do you engage a target at the range with an empty chamber first? I have 1 in the pipe because that's how I train.

    The condition to carry is dictated by comfort, comfort comes from repitition.

    I carry a DA only hammerless .357 and it's carried usually in a SOB holster.

    Glock 19 with one in the pipe.

    I was nervous about leaving it chambered initially as well, and i have a simple rule...it does not leave the holster unless it is going to be shot or cleaned. The rest of the time I treat the holster and gun as a single unit.

    Exactly. If ever needed, that will be the loudest "CLICK" of your life. My SA guns are chambered w/ safety on. And my double action/Glocks/DAO guns are chambered. I only carry in a holster that covers the trigger completely. Right now that's a P32 in my right pocket. Other times it's whatever in a VM2 ~4 o'clock.

    The firing pin is held about 25% back. Pressing the trigger brings the firing pin the last 75% back (first stage) and then releases the striker (second stage of the trigger pull).

    If there was a round in the chamber, and the "cocked" pin dropped, it would have to to bypass the firing pin safety (trigger actuated), and even then, it doesn't have enough energy to fire off a round. My % are just estimates, take look for yourself.

    :rofl:

    +1

    There is no way I'd carry a gun without having a round in the chamber or cocked and locked.

    I carry 4:30-5:00 I print too much at 3:00 :(
