    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.

    So what was your understanding of the LCP II's trigger safety when you bought yours?

    Agreed, but to have added holster considerations would have made the poll unwieldy. I figured folks could cover that in their comments if they chose to. And for what it's worth, a holster . . . properly designed or otherwise . . . is not a substitute for a gun that lacks adequate safeguards of its own in my estimation.

    I put it in the holster and leave it there. I use a kydex IWB that covers the trigger . Where it gets less safe is when it gets drawn and needs to go back in at the 4 oclock position. That's where I'm really,really careful. I definitely would rather a smooth, long , double action trigger but did not realize this until owning it for awhile. Do you ever notice Hickok says it a lot .He rather have some resistance in his triggers as long as it is smooth and breaks cleanly and consistently. (Yea, I'm a hickok discipal)

    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.

    Sure . . . provided you put in as much practice time and shoot as many weapons as he does. ;-) As for me, I'll never shoot as well with the range of weapons at Hickock's disposal as he does. But that's OK with me. I only have to shoot the weapons at my disposal well enough and safely enough to get the job done.
