To Chamber or Not To Chamber, That is the Question  

If you are not comfortable with the idea of carrying a chambered round, you may want to start with gaining confidence in:

  • the 4 Safe Gun Handling Rules: As long as you keep your finger off the trigger, it won't discharge. We are going to treat an unloaded gun EXACTLY the same as a loaded gun.
  • your firearm: Many modern firearms have internal safeties as well as external safeties, whose function is to ensure the firearm doesnít fire when it isnít supposed to. The trigger must be depressed for the firearm to discharge.
  • your holster. As long as you have a quality, kydex holster, preferably one that is designed for your make and model of firearm, the trigger should be covered at all times preventing any accidental pull of the trigger.

If you are nervous about carrying a round in the chamber, try this exercise.

So what are the disadvantages to racking the slide? First, a self defense situation is stressful and chaotic, and your body may not react the way you have been training. The simple act of racking the slide may be much more time consuming than under normal circumstances. Additionally, you may only have a split second of reaction time and may not be able to fully rack your slide causing a malfunction. Do you have both hands available or are you using your support hand to fight off an attacker? Ultimately, choosing to carry a round chambered is a personal choice. You will carry a round in the chamber when you are ready. In the meantime, just know that there are limitations with having to rack the slide.
