I know some people tout Israeli carry, the practice of carrying a firearm without a round in the chamber but with a full magazine. This video shows why I think that is a really bad idea...it can get you killed!

What good is it if it's not chambered in a emergancy

When people think of Israel and guns they see the IDF and the UZI carried in the open. While some might be intimated by that image, once knowing they have an empty chamber, you have the advantage when you want to commit some act. That time difference as Charlie points out is worthless.

I believe this was my point to begin with. It's the purpose of posting the video in the first place, as an FYI....................

John, good post but an argument can be said for not carrying condition 1. Over the last year here I think there have been 2 and maybe 3 I think accidental shootings by cops. Every one of the incidents were there "I forgot, I didn't know, I assumed, etc.) excuse. All have been in public places too. But as with anything there will always be two sides to each question. Me? One in the pipe, mag full and extra mag as well. Never go out behind the 8 ball to start.
