    I have yet to actually try one . If it is similar to my LC9s pro , I hesitate to carry with one in the chamber except in specific situations.

    Thanks for your comment, pennsy. If I read it properly, your vote that although the LCP's action cannot be locked by choice, it's still safe to carry provided it's carried without a round in the chamber. That's a BIG contingency for sure . . . one alluded to by Ed's comment . . . and not one that I thought about when I constructed the poll. Fortunately it got caught properly in the universe of choices I presented, but that was sheer luck on my part. Well done for catching that, sir!

    Now you see why I encourage comments and why all my pencils have erasers on them. :-)

    Like when my burglar alarm goes off and I have to drive over to shut it off. Maybe sketchy parts of town. I would rather leave it loaded 100% of the time but it is too light for me.

    Hmmm. That's pretty gutsy as far as I'm concerned, pennsy. No way would I drive into "sketchy" parts of town at night without one in the tube . . . particularly if I thought I might be heading into harm's way. You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!

    Dave, we just HAVE to get you out of your shell. When are you going to learn that it's OK to express yourself here? ;-)

    PS: I like Rugaglock better, but Glockaru sure has a nice ring to it. :-)

    I'm saying those are the times I do chamber one.

    Oops! My bad. So when you chamber a round, do you hold your breath when you carry your LC9s Pro? ;-)
