1. Rule is: treat every weapon as though it were loaded. It’s a great rule, until you need to use it and it isn’t.

    2. Except when you NEED it to be loaded, in which case you want to be sure.

      IMO a press check is not necessary if you have a loaded chamber indicator or a witness hole and good light.

  1. I like my springfield XD because it has a loaded chamber flag that you can just rub your finger over to see if a round is in the chamber, and it has a little nub that you can rub your finger over to see if the striker is cocked. Can do it in the total dark if need be. That’s part of the reason that the XD is my carry piece even though I am a 1911 fanboy.
