Ok, i have carried conceled for years, been around guns almost all my life....this is my first NEW Glock in prob. 15 years.....and i was surprised in the manual it says to carry w/out a round in the chamber. I understand for novices this is a good idea....but....so safe or not??? BTW, I love how much better this G27 "wears" compared even with my XD9 subcompact!!!! cant wait to try her out!!!!
