The thing that blows my mind every time one of these 'chamber empty or not for ccw' threads comes up is that there is even a discussion about it. Why anyone in their right mind would intentionally opt make themselves even LESS likely to prevail in a life and death struggle is beyond my ability to comprehend. If carrying a loaded gun makes a person uncomfortable then put it away and go buy some pepper spray, and if the design of the weapon is such that empty chamber carry is the only safe way, then save your pennies and go buy a decent weapon.
