Who carries unchambered and who carries chambered?

I like the way the israeli's do it. Draw chamber fire. I do not like a chambered weapon.


What are your pros and cons?

Chambered... You're firearm is useless without ammo in the chamber.

Chambered safety on. The couple times I got nervous about a situation, I reached down and flipped the safety off.

I would never carry unchambered, and I've been thinking about carrying safety off from now on. If you need your weapon, you are going to regret having to chamber around. Especially if it's a situation where the element of surprise would be beneficial.

When I travel with my M&P in the truck, it is not chambered. If I were to carry it on my person, you can bet it will have one in the spout. When you start adding more things to do before it goes BANG, such as having to rack a round, you needlessly complicate things.

Chambered with safety on . How fast do you think you can chamber if SHTF ?? Probably very very little .

100% chambered, no question. If my firearm is unchambered, the mag is out and slide is locked to the rear.

My main reason is it takes 2 hands to chamber a round... You cant count on having both hands in a pinch...

Also prefer to let my finger be the safety rather than have to manually switch a safety off.

Always chambered. Good reasons mentioned already.
