    I just cot an email that my Crossbreed holster has been shipped!!!
    I was curious on how many of you carry with one chambered or not chambered?
    Is there that much added risk, or is it something that I just need to get comfortable with?

    I think this a personal decision that you have to make, but most people on here will call you crazy and chastise you if you don't carry with one in the chamber.

    Chambered=potentially effective SD weapon.

    Unchambered=rock

    Obviously, you need to become proficient at safely carrying and handling your weapon while loaded.

    Chambered. An unloaded sidearm is no better than a stick.

    I carried mine un-chambered for the first week or so with the carry permit in order to get myself comfortable with having it on my person. Afterwards I've always carried chambered.
