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.

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.

I carry with a round in the chamber and I will never CC a weapon with a external safety.
