    I know this is probably a topic that comes up all the time but I am new here and want to hear your honest opinions on the matter. I know the debate is that some people think you don't have enough time or motor skills in a high stress situation to rack the slide and get on target. on the other hand I hear people have ended up shooting them selves in a defense situation from grabbing the gun and pulling the trigger prematurely. what is your take on this?

    One of the most popular threads on here is about carrying condition 1. There are over 1,000 replies IIRC.

    Check that one out

    There are even rap songs about the right way to carry!

    "Sixteen in the clip and one in the hole, Nate Dogg 'bout to make some bodies turn cold!"

    If an obscure early 90's rapper says to do it, we all should!

    Hey Guys---
    Do a search for "condition one" ! This fellows post is the only post to show for this subject------I am new here too and tried this search earlier because of questions I had. How 'bout a small bit of slack for newcomers --we are newbies and all suffer from a syndrome called "inexperience" !
    ........You ever been there ?

    A Glock without one in the chamber is a hammer.
