    Always one in the pipe. What's the point otherwise?

    Apparently, that notch in the rail is supposed to be there...

    A gun with out one in the chamber is a rock.
    A gun is like a parachute, if you need one and don't have one you will probably never need one again.

    The holster is the safety!

    Like the man said, once you put it in a holster made for the weapon (trigger covered) it is totally safe. I worried about it for a while but over the last several months of carry it's not a problem. I rear pocket carry my cm9 and learned from a post to NOT re-holster the weapon with the holster still in your pocket. Take it out each time and re-holster for obvious reason's if you think about it. I don't want my RH cheek going anywhere but in my pants..and I want all of it, no matter how little I have.

    New to carrying a gun? You'll get used to having one in the chamber very quickly. Keep the trigger covered in a holster and you will feel much safer. That gun has a Looonnnngggg trigger, so stop worrying about it lacking a safety. You don't need a safety either. You DO need one in the chamber. Start getting comfortable with that new gun and good luck with it.

    I am not new to concealed carry, just new to carrying a semi-auto pistol as my EDC. But you guys are right my snub nose .38 has a DA only trigger as the "safety".

    Thanks again for all the replies.

    Carry on !

    Always carry with one in the chamber!
    Beside being able to respond to a threat sooner, you will ALSO have one extra round to fight with!!
    And while I'm at it, carry at least one spare magazine.

    For me, one in the chamber is the way I roll. Kahr is a very safe and well designed pistol, so unless you pull the trigger while it's holstered your as safe as can be. Go to the range and shoot it more to get more comfortable with its macanics. Then go for it...
