Zero Carry elite IWB holster

I just received a brand new Zero Carry elite holster today. It fits and holds my weapon good. It's intuitive to draw safely so all seems well and good... except;

The package says ;
"... Zero Carry is not to be used with a firearm holstered in condition 0, 1 or 2...."

I'm disappointed because it sounds like they want it used without a round in the chamber?

Zero Carry elite IWB holster

For people curious about what this is (never hurts to give people information when you ask questions):

Given the dowel that goes down the barrel to align the holster, I wonder if part of the reason for not carrying with a round chambered is because the dowel might actually be blocked by a chambered round on shorter barreled pistols.

A gun without a round in the chamber is just about useless.
Say when.....

If they don't want you to have it loaded why have a trigger guard? I suspect the comment is designed to protect them from liability if you shoot yourself.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

A holster with a built in barrel obstruction, what could go wrong?

VersaCarry, who makes a similar product in their Zerobulk line, has a similar product warning but does not differentiate the warning from the holsters with a rod in the barrel from the other more traditional holsters they also sell.

From in part :
CARRY “CONDITION” OF FIREARM: Carrying any firearm with a live cartridge in the chamber immediately in front of the firing pin may cause an accidental discharge. All firearms should be carried with the hammer or firing pin resting on an empty chamber. Versacarry® holsters with retention straps intended for single-action pistols (such as the 1911) are designed for "hammer down, empty chamber" carry. 
All data is flawed, some just less so.
