This is why I ALWAYS chamber check my weapon when it has been out of my possession, even if it was just in the night stand overnight: If I do it every time
, I won't forget to do it the one time when it's important.
(Kinda like turn signals: If I signal every time, even turning into the garage, then I won't forget to signal when it's important.)

What does an "after market safety" have to do with the price of Pekoe in Peking?
