This is one of those utterly ridiculous statements that gets repeated over and over by people who aren't thinking about what they are actually saying.
You can't rack the slide on a hammer and then shoot fifteen rounds at various targets. A gun without a round in the chamber is still a gun and a hammer is, well...just a hammer.
I know it's confusing, but try to keep up.
