If you are afraid you might AD your sidearm because it is in condition 1, you need more training.

No such thing as an AD. It's either unintentional but safe discharge, or negligent discharge.

I agree, I am an old timer that uses outdated language.

I wondered about this, never seen it....but....but.....Ive been around, worked and drank with all kinds spoke to a few Japanese self types, Mexi Spic Romanian Scottish gypsy type who made a living doing strange stuff, the Biker types and Chinese types who did who knows what, ....borderline civilized people....others very honest and honorable with that martial arts budo spirit....others not so honorable....seen a bunch of Brazilian carnie festival entertainer types quickly open up each others heads with a simple steel pole or wooden timbers, boink!...some of these people some from places where it can be difficult to get modern firearms so they go back to old school maniac and effective barbarian ways of maybe killing or fighting each other.... I get some of them they would carry knives or some kind of weapon a lot...and i know there is the old rule of 'Never bring a Knife to a Gunfight'...but at 6 feet, 4 feet I get the feeling you would need to depend on yourself and your physical reaction and you would not want to rely on that gun too much. The shit will go real fast & no time to think I guess its why Seals, Deltas and special Forces of the World also Carry that Trusty Knife. I think the Army and Police teach this 21 foot rule, 4 feet is way, way too close. I also wonder you know those stories of some crazyass school shooter out of his mind, bragging, shooting up some place...if someone with no fear and a basic weapon...could they do something? I did see film once of some Chinese maybe Thai dudes dealing with guys, holding off 'bad guys' who came with knifes, then getting a clear draw and shot, but you could see they were mentally sharp, at the peak of their game, probably doing combat sport, self defense, kicking boxing every week. @glassuser Sharp body helps with a sharp mind, 6 feet or 4 feet would be way too close IMO. Seen this interesting vid some months ago https://hooktube.com/watch?v=aDPlWAq-11I Elite Gun Fighter vs Elite Knife Fighter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=js0haocH4-o 21 Foot Rule?

I didn’t realize people carried without a round in the chamber. The only time I do that is with an old-style single-action without a transfer bar.

Guns don’t normally just “go off” unless it has been tampered with or you are using a unsafe holster that doesn’t hide the trigger.

Resource limit reached.

Always carry, have it as quick to access as humanly possible, always have a round in the chamber.

There are some technical aspects to your pistol where you may not want to carry it with a round chambered. You need to consider them, and you may even want to switch to a different carry weapon.

First off, is your pistol single action, single-double, or double-action only? Most modern pistols are single-double, where they will fire double-action if the hammer is down, but will keep the hammer cocked once fired. Some police pistols have been modified to double-action only, where the hammer will not stay in the cocked position but will have to be pulled back by the trigger with each shot. This is marginally safer, but IMO unnecessary. Single-action requires the hammer to be in the cocked position before the pistol can be fired.

The 1911 and its variants are considered great pistols, and depending on their safety features can be fine for concealed carry. They are single-action only, and are designed to be carried "cocked-and-locked", with the hammer cocked and the safety on. They typically have an additional grip safety which will prevent the pistol from firing if not being held firmly. If your pistol is too old to have a grip safety I don't recommend using it for concealed carry. (Some people like to carry it uncocked; I don't recommend this, as you then can't engage the safety and it's less convenient to make it ready.)

I do not recommend Glock pistols, or other striker-fire pistols that lack extra safety measures, for concealed carry. They are essentially single-action, always cocked, and the only controllable safety is the one on the trigger. Even if it's a pistol with a safety lever I have some opinions as to whether it's sufficiently safe for concealed carry. Needs a hammer block as well IMO.

Another thing: You should check your pistol's safeties, and make sure the pistol can't fire even if they're partially disengaged.

My personal preference for concealed carry is the SIG P226. YMMV.

You should learn guerrilla tactics. Watch videos and then practice those

There's a lot of stuff out there that you should take in. Research it.
