I assume my semi-autos are loaded unless:

I see the slide locked open,
I see the magazine is not in the gun,
I see no round in the chamber.

A revolver is loaded when there is any ammunition in the cylinder. A semi is loaded when there is any ammunition in the chamber or magazine.

I feel SOMEWHAT safe carrying a peice that has ammo in the mag, but not chambered, but if i had the option, id only screw around with a fully unloaded weapon.
