    Sometimes I carry with a round chambered, sometimes I don't. Quite comfortable both ways. Always qualify both hands as well, been doing that since the eighties. That came in handy yesterday as I had to clear some defunct storage areas that had no lights and strange twist and turns. (a few I had never been in before) Sure wakes you up in a hurry on an otherwise peaceful day.

    Afterwards I had a triple expresso - just to bring my heart rate down. :)

    Man Buka....get you some backup before you start clearing areas. You ain't at Neo level yet.

    I'm old, bro, more at Morpheus level. :)

    You know how it goes, set up a wide perimeter and close. We were spread out, but it all worked out.

    I'll get it out and give that a try later. That might be what I've been doing that makes it drawable. In any case, my point was that someone who reaches in and tries to take the gun from that holster is really just attaching themselves to my hip. Makes a nice point from which to break their structure, for an Aikido guy. I get to keep the gun and stay on my feet. They probably don't get either.

    I worry about the folks in blue when y'all have to do that kind of stuff. Too many movies, too many friends in blue.

    I'm glad all that came out good for you guys, bro.

    I've always worked both hands when shooting. I think my dad actually started me on that, but I'm not sure.

    Me, too.
    But what I do should not be confused with actual Police work. It was on that day, but that's an exception rather than the rule. Ninety percent of the time we are nothing more than uniformed baby sitters.

    Ninety percent of the time, I don't have to worry about you, brother.
