Question One in the chamber?

Im new to the gun world, and have only had my concealed for about three and a half months. I have had a decent amount of shooting time at local ranges, But it makes me a little nervous carrying with one in the chamber. I have a taurus millenium pro .40 that I carry inside my waste band.

I was just wondering what you guys think and how you guys carry? Its about 50/50 for the guys I personally know who carry.

I carry the exact same gun, and I carry one in the chamber since it has a manual slide safety.(thats why I don't carry a glock, since the only safety is on the trigger) In a situation where one would need to be quick, or have the element of suprise, I don't think theres time to unholster, flip the safety(because on a taurus the safety has to be off to move the slide), <ock, aim and fire. But you can in one fluid movement, unhoster and flip the safety as you are on your way to position.

Is it just me, or does it seem like all Dodge drivers are A$$holes?

Not having a round in tha chamber is not a good idea. If it hits the fan I will be loading my second mag before you get off your first shot.
