A loaded gun with a safety enabled is 1000x less retarded than an empty gun. At least most of the time that can be operated with one hand!

I rarely bother saying anything anymore but I usually tell people "if you're going to carry an empty gun pick something else that you would be more confident loaded with". A 5 shot j frame with a 10 pound trigger is less of a liability than an empty gun is.

I got called a 'cuck' plenty by fellow gun enthusiasts for choosing to carry a HK P30S loaded but with the safety on. They're like why bro? Your double action first trigger is your safety. Wait till they hear about my fashion man purse I like to carry it in sometimes. People ought to stop worrying how others carry. Why care? Y'all live longer lol.

i gonna be honest here - when i was single i had a glock gen1 with one in chamber all the time, when i needed it. and i had to use it a couple of times.
now with family and kids by my side i simply do not carry glock - i carry p365 with one in chamber and safety on. it is a compromise that makes me comfortable.
if someone somewhere is not OK with that - they can f*** themselves for what i care.
Roger that.
I'm pretty comfortable carrying a G43 or 19 in a good holster ready to go.
I was curious about when you had to use your Glock a couple of times. Can you share those experiences?

Some caves off Route 40 past Groton
If I remember correctly, JMB’s original design didn’t incorporate a grip safety.
That dovetails perfectly with the fact that
I don't depend upon my grip safety to keep me safe.

"This gun only shoots when you hold it" is almost as stupid as
"this gun only shoots when you pull its trigger".

I don’t carry chambered. Don’t see the need for it and don’t care about anecdotes and opinions,

you may become the subject of an anecdote or opinion.​

I don’t wear a seat belt all the time. I figure if I need it I will put it on right before the crash. [thumbsup]
I knew her.
She was selfless - she didn't try and put on her own belt.
When it was hitting the fan and everything was on the line,
she'd steer with her left hand, and throw out her right arm
to protect the front seat passenger.

I think everyone getting COVID is making people stupid.

I am basing this on the recent amount of stupid threads on NES asking about high cap mags, leaving guns unattended, carrying condition 1 or not ...
No; the cabin fever is getting so bad that newbs are saying to themselves,
"self, I've read everything else on the Intarwebs -
I guess it's time to try asking questions on NES".

This, 100%. Mixing it up is a bad idea. You will need it one day and will rack the slide, wasting an expensive round. Have you seen the price of 9mm?
Yahbut if it's a lethal force encounter,
the cops will help you crawl around on the ground
to find the errant round.

Get some Nitro Wood and walk around condition 1.
Doesn't that belong in the CLP thread?

Carrying an unloaded gun is the same as not carrying any gun,.. Good luck with that.
Except when you're carrying under the influence in Mass.
Then, it's legal.[shocked]

+1 for the fanny pack.
It's a Bat Belt, dammit!

Recommend keeping the gun at the low ready at all times and move from cover to cover in a staggered fashion, waving your party to follow one at a time, especially in Boston. Don’t forget hand signals to maintain comms blackout.

Tueller Proofs, bymebbe?
I dunno.

Ehhh I appreciate your levity, but I left that there because there's a lot of people on NES (yourself excluded im sure) that talk about knife fighting but really have no idea how horrible it is.
I've never really recovered from just watching the
Haverhill Strip Mall Asian Bistro Box-Cutter Stumblebum video NES thread.

And that was just some confused stumblebum with a box-cutter -
not even a Mean Drunk, let alone a motivated sociopathic mugger.

Anyone here who doesn't have experience with wet-brain drunks and
guys waving a blade owes it to themselves to invest 16 minutes in that video
and ponder what could have happened if someone got cut.

20 feet is basically the length of a truck, so it's essentially shooting someone charging you at a gas pump
F that noise; you should be so lucky.
Hose him down with 87 octane (starting at the eyes) and pray for a spark.

Most good trainers teach situational awareness and avoidance in their firearm classes. I know mine does.
The goal is to learn situational awareness.

Yup. Don’t walk on the train tracks if you don’t have.
Word.


Honestly I think it’s impossible to be situationally aware all the time.
Yahbut <insert Cooper Color Code wisdom here>.

... there are people out there who are oblivious to their surroundings all the time.
A.k.a. the Walking Unconscious.

Agreed, stay out of the hood and off the street after 10pm. Nothing good happens after 10pm.
whatever happened to midnight? [rofl]

Just got back from Target in Leominster and they had an Xbox SX so I had to buy it for some reason... I was walking out with both hands full carrying the box and a bag of yogurt( my BF wasn't around to carry the bags) and amazingly enough I didn't get mugged for the toy !
Yogurt counts for a lot in some quarters.

Without a round in the chamber all you have is a hammer
Hammer counts for a lot.

Eh , NES is like any magazine ….constant rotation of the same old shit.
Like golf magazines how many “sand trap” tips can they publish each year.
