    So a friend of mine was amazed that I keep 1 in the chamber while carrying. He was also amazed that I did it because my gun has no safety(glock 27). His rational was that you can unholster the weapon and chamber a round before the bad guy got to you.. So does anyone have any links to some videos showing how long it takes to do all that while someone is coming at you?

    Simple, just get an airsoft gun, have him stick in in a holster, without one in the chamber, stand 10 feet away from him, and tell him that when he considers you to be a threat, pull out the gun, rack the slide, and shoot you.
    Wait for him to calm down, so he's not so jumpy, then run at him as fast as you can and punch him in the fucking face.

    Be sure to get that on video, so that we can pull it up every time this question is asked.

    Was your argument "be prepared vs. be almost prepared"?

    it amazes me that people think a gun is so dangerous because it has a bullet in it. Isnt that the point? And because it has no "safety" its absolutely ludicrous.

    You should have explained that the Glock has 3 safeties.

    Then punched him.

    the fact that the poll i did last week about this was almost 100% +1 carry is 1 thing, the other is what the fuck is the point of carrying if you have to rack the slide before firing, the bad guy will have 1 in his chamber for sure!

    on top of that if someone hasn't practiced enough with weapons to keep their finger off of the trigger until they want to fire then they shouldn't carry at all so tell your friend to eat your shit and practice more if he's affraid of accidentally pulling the trigger

    I was recently pulled over (as in 2 days ago) and the officer said out of the people he's pulled over carrying, I was only the 2nd or 3rd guy to keep one racked.
     
  16. :ugh: Did you ask him how he carries his duty weapon?

    I dont think he was saying he didnt carry one loaded, I think he was pointing out the fact hes smart and most people are idiots. My dad only puts 4rds in a jframe so its "safer"

    i remember hearing a story of some israeli military guy who was living in the US. he walks in to a bank that's being robbed, so he pulls out his legal gun (he has a ccw)

    he then "pulls back the slide to load his gun"

    media hailed him as a hero cuz he stopped the robbery. gun crew calls him a fucking idiot
     
  20. Nobody is saying you're guaranteed to be fucked if you don't have one in the chamber, the point is that you might not have time to chamber one. In this case the guy was lucky that he had time.

    I dunno im pretty sure i could rack the slide before I got to full extension. But I also wouldnt want to risk the number one failure point

    he walked in and he was behind the robber. pretty much the most ideal situation

    so much can go wrong in a panic

    i prefer a fired round to load my next round

    What movie is it that the guy has to chamber a round and he has to rack the slide so slowly that he kisses it all the way back? Nicholas Cage Face/Off maybe? Nope I think is was Desperado when he was in the library. Yep definitely Desperado. Not editing my post.
