I haven't made up my mind
Just voted "I haven't made up my mind", as I reach down to touch my LCP II (with one in the tube) in it's IWB Vedder holster, just to make sure its there, since I can't feel it over my appendectomy scar.
I would not carry a defensive pistol without having a live round chambered. I cannot be sure I have time to deploy the pistol even with a chambered round depending on the situation. Having to cycle the slide while I am under extreme pressure would not be a safe action in my opinion as too much time would be consumed.
The poll does not describe methods of carry. A properly designed holster is, in my opinion, absolutely essential when carrying pistols like the Ruger LCP II, Glocks, or any other (like my S&W SW9VE) that have similar safety configurations.

Hickock's statement doesn't surprise me at all, pennsy. The man is nothing if not cautious when it comes to firearm safety.
I follow Hickock closely and really like him a lot, but have to admit that more than once, I cringed as Gunner wandered among the targets he was shooting at. Absolutely the only thing I ever had to criticize him for. By the way, that man can and does shooting anything with any kind of trigger, so, I can't take his ability to shoot whatever as applicable to me.
