I carry a semi-auto un-chambered in my home with the kids around, etc., otherwise I keep it chambered and ready with the safety (if it has one) off. I used to think playing it safe was better but with more experience I agree with the others that with a sufficiently heavy DA trigger, a good holster that covers the trigger and proper trigger finger control, the odds of having something bad happen are reduced enough for me to feel safe. But for me having to draw the gun, rack the slide (hopefully without a FTF under stress) and aim in situations that happen so fast, and are so unpredictible is just adding an un-necessary layer when you need to be able to act by instinct.

There is one small good point about your way though - if someone gets the drop on you and gets your gun you may be able to get away before they figure out how to shoot you with it.
