For law purposes, would having a chambered round be better than one that is not?

1. I picked up my gun and fired it at the intruder.
2. I picked up my gun, chambered it, and fired it at the intruder.
3. I picked up my gun, loaded the magazine, chambered it, and fired it at the intruder.

Wondering if lawyers would nit pick and say that since you decided to load it, it took you some time to think about what you plan on doing with it. Maybe even a super long stretch like you premeditated it by taking your time to load the weapon first.

Interesting observation.....sounds like some of this is going on with the Pistorious murder trial. With the Pistorious trail, even use of hollow points became a factor in the prosecution.

I think some of the premeditation factor will depend on local law and statutes. The same scenario defensive shooting in Hawaii will play out much differently in Texas.

Yeah, that's what you get for using one of them fancy new auto-repeaters.  Get a REAL handgun!

yeah, but then if an intruder was in my house, i'd have to put on jeans, cowboy boots, spurs, chaps, long sleeve shirt, bandana, vest, leather long coat, 10 gallon hat...
and by that time, i would be dead from the intruder

Six rounds in chambers of bedroom gun.  Always,



I do believe that the radical and crazy notion that the Founders meant what they said, is gradually soaking through the judicial system.

I prefer to keep the gun "cold" with a mag handy & ready if needed.

Actually, for one of my carry guns, that's 100% true, too.  Including the laser.  Including the Gold Dots.

Lasered J-frame always resides in either my coat or pants pocket when going out.  Ideal summer carry gun.  In the midst of changing the batteries in mine right now.

I only answered the thread question with respect to my in-the-house SD gun, a six-chambered revolvolator, even though the thread was directed toward them automagical guns.

G19 w TLR-4 loaded and chambered in the nightstand. Full battle-rattle SHTF rifle loaded not chambered in the safe. Gonna get a shotgun soon and that will be loaded not chambered as well.  :thumbsup:
