You can safely carry the SR9C with a chambered round, in a holster that covers the trigger guard, and with the ambidextrous manual safety in the off position,.

Instruction Manual for the Ruger SR9C Manual Safety Model Pistol, page 9: "The trigger safety and firing pin block prevent firing unless trigger is completely pulled."

I don't have an SR9c (YET!) but I do carry a Glock 19 with 15 + 1 and an extra mag. I will probably carry mine (or my wifes which ever comes first) with the safety off with one in the pipe. I agree that as long as it is in a good holster you're good.

Although training with a safety gives you good practice. All good.

I live in California and do not yet have my CCW. But when I go out of state where its permitted (ie Arizona) and once i get my CCW, there is, and will always be, one in the chamber with the safety off. The safety is just one more thing to think about. In a life threatening situation, with heightened adrenaline, that can cost you your life. My holster has a trigger guard to help prevent any ADs.

The only times my SR9c does NOT have a round in the chamber is:
1. While changing magazines
2. When being cleaned
3. When locked in the gun vault

If you are uncomfortable carrying it with a round chambered, trade it for a revolver. Remember, trouble does not make an appointment. You may not have the time or the use of both hands to rack the slide when trouble surprises you.

I carry loaded and locked because an unloaded gun is not useful.
I had a Glock for a while and it made me uneasy because of the number of reported accidental discharges.
It was otherwise a great gun, accurate and reliable.
I decided that it was not worth the worry, real or imagined, and traded it for a Sig.
I'm happy and the fellow who got the Glock is happy.

I carry a P89, one in the chamber, 15 in the magazine, decocked, safety off. I use a high quality iwb holster that covers and protects the trigger. Safe and quick.

I carry one in the pipe safety on. Not doing so means you will be playing catch-up with your life. Saying you can draw and rack is great. But I doubt anyone has practiced it when someone has a hold of their other arm.

I carry mine with one in the chamber and with the safety on. The only reason I carry it with the safety on is because I carry 1911s more than I do the SR9C and it's just second nature to snick off the safety as I bring the gun to the ready position.

Anything I carry has a round in the chamber, with either the hammer down on decock pistols or cocked / locked for my 1911's. I know it only takes seconds to rack the slide, but that's a few seconds that might be the difference in surviving.

Good arguements.

Has no one had a round not chamber racking a slide?

If it is already back and a fresh mag inserted,the slide release is a different story.

If the weapon is a 1911 it was designed for cocked and locked carry.

If it a P-90,P-95,etc double action on the first shot. It has a firing pin block safety as well as the long trigger pull. Probably the same on say an LCP.

Would worry me on say a Glock since many reports of police shooting them selves,so is the trigger that easy to pull and the safety is in the middle of the trigger? Could you hit both safety and trigger just putting the weapon into a holster?

I always carry with one in the chamber. Neither of my carry guns (Walther P99 & Ruger SP101) have a safety. I'm picking up a new SR9C this week and will probably keep one in the pipe and safety ON.
