One can talk theory all day. What would really be helpful, especially to the naysayers, is a study of many actual cases of civilian CCW responders to a threat, the outcome , and the method of carry.
This is the rational that should be used in every case of assessing, what firearm, what mode of carry, and what things you should practice on the range.
Especially with LEOs, and easier to gain this information for the Police, as they document each shooting.
Did not some famous scholar not say "Those who do not study History are bound to repeat it?"
Hunter Girl, if you did this study, one of the first lessons would be, IMHO do not carry chamber empty, I think!
