    OK, but in my reality, have been gone from home for almost 72hrs. and, even after returning home, LCP will not be unholstered 'til going to the range or time for cleaning. Yes, I may be tempted to play with somethings, but not my firearms.

    OK, here I go. Head first into the big dispute. I think the LCP II is safe to carry with 1 in the chamber. I would not recommend it be done by someone new to fire arms. However, I do think that experienced firearms owners that handle their guns frequently and are well aware of the potential dangers, can carry it safely.
    As far as new shooters, I do not think that they should carry at all until they are thoroughly familiar with their gun and all safety practices are done without thinking.
    I think pocket carry with the LCP or II II is out of the question. Drawing from a pocket is never as smooth and clean enough.
    Just my humble opinion.

    All the talk of fast draws makes me laugh. This is not the wild, wild west. Cops need to worry about fast draws. Civilians need to concern themselves with concealed carry .Keep your skinny jeans home and alls good.I know I'm going to get killed over this but I think we are all a bit paranoid.Fast draw is something invented by self proclaimed internet instructors.Unless you are living somewhere really dangerous,in which case I would move if it was that bad,speed is not my first concern. Ok, let me take cover now.

    "Speed" is not my long-suit, either. At my advanced age, suspect the BD is likely to perceive me as one of the least of his threats--hope so, anyway.

    I fully agree. As someone who has had a lot of birthdays, I may look like a tempting target to bad guys who tend to think older people are walking around with lots of cash on them. If I have to defend myself, I can do so based on years of gun handling including real world experience. I would not hesitate to carry an LCP II with a round in the chamber, but frankly prefer DA pocket pistols with longer, harder trigger pulls. I carried a 1911 for years and depended on the safety, so I am not worried about "forgetting" to release one, but don't need a safety on my LCP or Seecamp.
