SOLID feedback everyone, I appreciate it. Hearing these personal stories and experienced testimonials helps me gain a bit more understanding and confidence to trust myself and my carry system for the remaining 25% of the time I that make excuses NOT to carry.
As for chambering a round while carrying...I think I'm sold on the notion of a high stress situation and how a simple slide rack can go wrong once you get a dose of adrenaline and stress.
Makes me realize there is absolutely no point to own and carry a firearm if I cannot defend myself or others in a real situation. A damaged weak hand or failure under stress to rack the slide could prove deadly for sure. Im making a strong effort from this day forward to maintain the best carry system and skills needed to neutralize a bad situation as fast as possible. You guys rock!
