Default A round in the chamber of a Glock 36

Several months ago I bought a new Glock 36. With only a second trigger as a safety I'm concerned about having a round in the chamber. Any thoughts or experiences with this?

No need to worry, most glock unintentinal discharges happen during reholstering. I have a G19,G23, & G27 and i carry a full mag plus one in the chamber. Just be careful reholstering is my advice to ya. Hope that helps, Concealed 27

Keep your gun in the holster while donning and removal. I have a Glock 30 and carry it appendix style. I'm not concerned of a ND because the trigger is covered by the holster and nothing can trip it. Other than that, keep your finger off the trigger until you have your target acquired.

Carry with an empty chamber until you are comfortable/confident with handling your gun.

Thanks to both of your two replies. I don't use a holster. I bought one and also bought a spring steel clip that mounts on the right side of the slide. It cuts down on the wideth of the concealed. During these winter months I believe I may go back to the holster, then I'd feel more comfortable with one in the chamber.

Personally, I would not carry with one chambered without the trigger protected somehow. I just don't want to risk something getting inside the trigger guard and tripping the trigger. Having a ND while carrying appendix could be life altering.

The only way possible for a Glock to fire is by depressing the trigger. That said I would not carry any gun without a round in the chamber and the trigger covered. An empty chamber may cost you your life. An uncovered trigger may cost you your life.

Agreed with both of the above members, you can get slim holsters there is alot out there I live in Florida and carry a holster with every gun even thought it hot as hell, would rather be a little uncomfortable than putting a 45 ACP in my croch.....just another 2 cents 4 ya......

Put a round in the chamber and the pistol in a holster.

I agree that a holster or something that can protect the trigger from accidently being pulled would be a good idea. I recommend a Crossbreed Super Tuck holster. Even though expensive, they are worth every penny. Or as a good alternative, look at what High Noon Holsters has, I have heard very good responses about their equipment.

I always try to stay alert, even at home. That said, I think I'll keep the chamber empty unless I feel a threat is imminent.
Thanks for the info. My other guns "Bersa .380 has a safety position on the hammer and I don't have a problem with one in the chamber. This one without a holster is gonna stay clear chambered.
