KEEP it holstered at HOME, too? Is it because your gun is a big, heavy CLUNK? Is it because you have an uncomfortable rig? or is it because you are such a wussy that you can't stand to wear a set of pants more than 10 hours at a time?

I wear a gun most of the time, and my usual attire is a pair of shorts (it was only 110F here today, slightly cool weather for this time of the year).

Yeah, and I leave it loaded and chambered.

Maybe if you read the thread this should have been posted to, you'd discovered that he might not want to wear his duty rig all the time, and instead wears something else when at home.

why don't just LEAVE the rd chambered, hmm?
This is an inherently unsafe practice, in regards to most firearms on the market.

In some climates this may be detrimental to the chambered round. Condensation, sweat, gun lubricant or holster chemicals could compromise it's reliability.

only if u use JUNK ammo. I've sprayed military .45 ball with WD-40,let it soak overnight, ALL fired fine the next day. I've left reloaded .45 swc ammo in a glass of water all WEEK, all fired fine. I'd sealed around the case mouth and the primer with model airplane "dope".

You are ignorant jerk. If the gun is unsafe to LEAVE a rd chambered at home, it's ALSO unsafe to so carry it in the street, <font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font>.

BS. First of all, WD 40 isn't a rust preventative, it's a penetrant. Secondly, if you soak ammo in WD 40, it's going to kill the primers. It eats through the sealant used by the military on the primers. Model airplane glue dissolves in WD 40. My Father in law is an RC airplane buff and has shown me some cool tidbits of info on those.

Now, about unsafe at home vs on the street. You don't know what you are talking about. He may have children at home, or his living situation may be such that a loaded gun at home is more of a liability than anything. Get a clue, you don't know anything.
