    My carry, a semi auto, has a round chambered after which I use the safety to decock the hammer, then safety off. The first pull would be double action followed by single action. I feel this is best for me to reduce the chance of any accidental discharge. How do you carry?

    I carry LCR revolver loaded in my front jeans pocket. IMO can't get any safer or more reliable than this. Less chance of "Glocking" myself and no worry if it is in ready mode.

    Gun is fully loaded (includes one up the pipe) in a good holster. Two reloads available. :cool:

    I carry all my semiautos with one in the pipe. I carry my 1911 condition one. However, I don't carry my CZ75 Compact that way. Unlike a 1911, the CZ makes me uneasy in the cocked-n-locked condition. I carry, like you, chamber loaded and hammer decocked. I carry my Sig P6 the same way.

    My Glock G26 is my go-to EDC. One in the pipe and ready to go. No chance of an ND as long as you use a properly-fitted holster and use the safety between your ears.

    "Glocking" yourself? C'mon, you're better than that.

    Glocks are as safe as any other semi-auto handgun. As long as you're carrying in a properly-fitted holster and abiding by the four rules of gun safety, you're good-to-go.

    Just because I'm curious, how do you define "Glocking" oneself?

    From what I understand the term being glocked came from more than a few cops shooting themselves by ND with their Glock.

    The NDs cops suffer are more due to their mishandling the firearm than the Glock misfiring. Guns don't shoot themselves - not even Glocks.

    Cocked and locked in a good holster. When the shtf your not going to have time rack up a round. Modern handguns won't go off until you pull trigger.

    I've pocket carried a G26 for the last four years. I have other guns and holsters, but I'm too lazy to strap up every time. It's easier to just slip it in my pocket.

    I carry my Glock 21 fully loaded (13+1) in an Alien Gear Holster for 2 years now and have never had it go off on its own. The trigger is the only safety I need and or want if I ever need to use it.
