I remember when I first got into reading about carrying and I stumbled upon this site and read some misc stuff about carrying with one in the chamber and I almost thought maybe I would first carry without a round in the chamber but I thought more and just went ahead and carried ready to go. Things like this are the perfect example as to why there is no point having a gun without a round in the chamber. If you have to react fast you wont be as lucky if you have to rack the slide and chamber a round.
