When you're re-holstering, keep your bugger hook off the trigger and you're your palm off the grip safety. Then there's now way for it to go off.

Being a fellow Oregonian, why don't you carry into a bank? If you carry concealed, and have a permit, you are good to go. Just do not show it off, flash it, jsut keep it concealed.
Banks are NOT a Federal building, the money is Federally protected, but they are Not a federal building, therefore, you can carry concealed in a bank.

Full magazine, and One in the Pipe at ALL times.

As always, Stay Safe.

lol i didn't look to see where the OP was from. i just assumed he was not from our great state because there is no reason to leave your gun in the car to go to the bank, and lots of reasons to take it with (ever heard of bank robbers?) lol. if you live in oregon, you can carry pretty everywhere...

Well alright, I'd say the general opinion is to keep a cartridge chambered or leave the gun at home! I appreciate the feedback. I love this Great State despite the cancerous tumor hanging from our South border. I was hesitant with the bank thing - for some reason I thought the cop who taught the safety class said not to carry in a bank. I understand federal buildings and post offices require us to leave our constitutional rights at the door. What about local government buildings with no conspicuous sign on the front?

Yes. Only way to go. For safety when unholstering/reholstering I have my thumb on the rear sight and finger off the trigger. Gun can't go boom! On the flip side, if you carry with an empty chamber, and need to use your gun, you'll draw with a good "ready to fire grip," but gun can't go boom until the slide is racked! Be smart about it and you'll be safe.

An unchambered carry gun is a rock. Always chambered and ready.

I can understand the question because when I first started to carry I did not chamber a round. I felt like I did not have the confidence to carry a "loaded" gun.
Then my son yelled at me and gave me a word of advice: "Finger Off The Trigger!"
That pretty much took care of that issue.

just wondering, why are you holstering and unholstering? I know of one reason to take it out of the holster during everyday life. Unless you are talking about the first time you put it on in the morning. I carry IWB and I secure the belt first and then holster my sidearm. If you are talking about doing drawing drills at your house, you shouldn't even have live ammo in the same room with you let alone one in the pipe.
