    Does anyone feel nervous about carrying one in the chamber when you are around your children?

    Not a bit. Nothing is different if they are there or not...

    I see no reason to be if the firearm is on you.

    I remedied my misgivings about carrying around my kid by teaching him to clear it, and teaching him about guns in general! If I know he knows how to handle a weapon and how to clear it (aka make it safe, drop mag clear the chamber) then it gets rid of a lot of my misgivings about firearms and my kid!

    if the gun is very secure on your hip all the time, not too concerned.

    but if it's in a purse, coat pocket, fanny pack or the like that you may set down somewhere, then i'd be pretty concerned, whether one is in the chamber, the chamber is empty but a full mag is in the gun, or even if the ammo and gun are both accessible by prying hands.

    No, not at all.

    I carry in a kydex IWB holster that fully covers the trigger, holds the gun very securely, and very snug against my body. The gun cannot come out without me knowing it, and the trigger cannot be accessed unless the gun is removed from the holster. The gun is, of course, a modern firearm design to be completely safe for C1 carry. If I was the slightest bit concerned, I would simply switch to an IWB holster with a thumb-break (to eliminate any possibility of the gun coming out of the holster even during rough-housing) rather than downgrading my carry condition to C3.

    No, not even a little bit.

    I'd be nervous were I not capable of expediently and effectively ending a threat to their safety and/or well being.:wavey:

    I don't have children, but have carried around children before, and ALWAYS carry condition 1. I never have any reason to feel uneasy about it. I am in control of my weapon.

    Um, no. The little devil has still never attempted to jump out of my holster and shoot anyone. I keep watching, though.

    wouldn't having your kids with you make you want to be condition 1 more than ever?

    No. I have never had my weapon off around the house. It's under my control, not the kids.

    People have many razor sharp knives and lots of cleaning chemicals in the kitchen, not locked up in any way, and no one notices.

    ^^^ good posting:thumbsup:
     
  17. If you were to fall down and hit your head, and then your kid started trying to help you and see why you were out. And if he found your gun, and was facinated with it, and drew it out of the holster, and didn't know about guns, and then pulled the trigger and shot somebody with it.

    Then yes, I'd worry about it.

    Otherwise, if the gun functions correctly, and you have a well designed holster, and your kid has already learned firearm safety, then I wouldn't worry about it.

    This!! Education is the most important safety measure you can have when it comes to children and firearms.
