          Having a 4 year old granddaughter who comes into our lives weekly I choose to clear my weapon (M&P 9) before entering my granddaughters home and placing the weapon out of reach. When at my home watching her, my weapon is placed away from her reach but readily available to me.
          I agree with experts and otherwise carry my auto pistol with one in the chamber and ready to fire ( I prefer safey on from my 1911 days). Israeli Style carry puts the citizen at a big time disadvantage-one Iím not willing to take. Fearful of carrying in condition zero or one should consider a revolver or SA/DA pistol. My 2 cents as a graybeard citizen

            revolver is the way to go in my opinion, if you have a failure to eject, failure to fire in a semi auto your out of luck with time. With a revolver just pull again or **** the hammer.

              When I first started carrying I didn’t chamber a round now it is always loaded.

                It's hard to explain how you got that .45 caliber hole in your butt carrying your 1911 behind the back. Even Highly Trained LEO's have had accidental discharges with thier Glocks. So having one in the chamber won't make up for a loss of situational awareness. But if you feel you must have one in the chamber, make sure the semi-auto pistol has a decocking lever and a D/A trigger. 13 pounds of D/A trigger pull has kept many a person from having to explain what went wrong with thier "Quick-Draw".
