I have a Comp-Tac Minotaur holster for my Glock 19. It's awesome, never had a problem since I got it a few months back. Glock is stock, stock trigger, etc. I keep the mag full, but I don't chamber a round while carrying. I feel 100% comfortable with it on me without a round chambered. It's just like a weight on my hip, I don't feel any pressure of responsibility really. While picturing various situations, I feel like carrying without a round in the chamber gives me bluff power but very little protection. Having to rack the slide seems like it would take forever, require 2 hands, and give the BG a huge opening to just bum rush me. The thing is, some part of me feels like a huge weight would be on my shoulders for carrying a gun with no manual safety with a round in the chamber. Just the fact that a Glock is always condition 1 makes me just want to be extra cautious. I want to convince myself that I'll be as safe as I can be carrying with a round chambered. I like to keep the gun on my nightstand table in the holster, although I think I'd prefer it be unloaded while there. What procedures do you follow in order to ensure maximum safety on the day to day with your loaded handgun? Do you ever unload the round from the chamber?
