You are fairly knew aren't you. This forum never stays on topic long. It's sort of our thing. A lil zig here a zag there, two or three little meanders, a major detour or two, all the while peeking back in at the original topic. Best get used to it if you plan on being around long lol.Read first page only, and the discussion is about carrying on an empty chamber. I click to page #5, and somehow we're talking about tea and coffee.
I carry a handgun with a full chamber and a rifle and shotgun with an empty chamber because they generally aren't drop safe.
I don't fault those and think there's absolutely nothing wrong with EDCing with an unchambered handgun. Everything comes with pros and cons. There are situations where each method is superior. Do what works for you and makes you feel comfortable whether it be empty chamber, thumb safety, mag disconnect, etc. There are no wrong answers IMHO.
