Carrying Israeli style (empty chamber, loaded mag) is a bad idea for one big reason. If your weak hand is immobilized it will be impossible to rack the slide one handed.
On the show Best Defense Rob Pincus demonstrated how one can rack the slide if only one hand is functional. You can practice it bunches and get proficient at it BUT remember the time needed to accomplish a reload or loading of the chamber under stress while doing so one handed allows the attacker time to get to you and to sling as much lead your way as possible while you fiddle a one handed loading of the chamber
