Always chambered, and depending on what I am carrying, it's cocked and locked

Chambered or not? Really? What carry? Might as well put a round I your shirt pocket Barney and hope the assailant doesn't have his chambered. That split second is life or death. If your scared of shooting yourself or that your kids may get to it get a gun with a thumb safety and train to use it.

This is my opinion, first time owners should not carry a Glock or any other stricter fired that depend on just a drop trigger safety. Everyone wants a Glock, the hype will get you killed. Don't be stupid and get a Glock before you know what your doing you can always trade for one later.

ATTN: All Glock Fanboys reading this! I own Glocks and enjoy them, this is not an attempt to bash. It is a simple educational post to prevent ND's. but not only Glock, Walters, SA, S&W and all other non external safety handguns!

Allow me to point out the flaw in your thinking here:

Let's say someone takes your advice and starts with a pistol, oh, say a Beretta 92, with DA first pull, a and a decocker/safety. They get used to all of these safety features. They get used to relying on them.

Then they buy a Glock, which has none of them...but, because they are used to the Beretta, they need to unlearn everything they knew, and start all over again...and in the process of relearning, is a greater candidate for an accident.

On the flip side, if you start with a pistol like a Glock, and you treat every other future pistol in the same manner (if the trigger gets pressed, it's gonna go bang)...you are waaaay ahead of the game.

Think about it.

I sort of agree with you, however, as has been stated by multiple posters, you should spend a few days with your weapon unloaded so you can get a feel for it. If you have a round in the chamber, and you don't know the weapon inside and out, you're wrong.

Even in the Chair Force, we learned how our M-16's worked and how to field strip them weeks before we even got to the range.

Carrying it around your home, where risk of actually needing it is low? Great idea.

Carrying it out in public where the chances just went up exponentially? Bad idea.

I like it,

its offensive in nauture, you need room to do it. What if its hands on and you have one hand. Even if you atei cocking serrations thats more time you have to one handed mantain control of your gun. Fighting for it your not going to be able to rack it. 2 OCers walking together yes that would work quite well.

However it misses the most important issue the most likely time for a gun to jam is when loading it. Even if it jams after the first round 99.99% of the time thats going to be enough to have you survive. I must have that first round work.
