mr ed, with all due respect, your idea has no merit at all. I honestly do not mean this as a peronal (or impersonal) insult, but the idea is just plain silly. If the situation dictates you must draw your weapon why in the world would you want it in any other condition than ready to do what the weapon was made to do? If you do not feel that the situation has come to that extreme (or has the potential to very quickly) then you should not be pointing a gun at someone regardless of what it's loaded with.
There really isn't a need for any long explanations - if you can't see the glaring flaw then you should reconsider your decision to be armed.
The pen is mightier than the sword - unless you are facing a man armed with a sword, then the pen is pretty much useless. 45 Fu
