For those who CCW on the mainland or currently live there, did it take time to get comfortable with concealed carrying with a round in the chamber and no manual safety/decocker? I travel every so often and recently took the CCW class in Vegas and would like to carry on the mainland.
While I'm not new to shooting, I'd be new to CCW and feel I may have an irrational fear about carrying with a round in the chamber without a manual safety or da/sa. I say irrational as I'd buy a quality holster and would holster the gun prior to clipping it on IWB, so it would never come out unless I'm back at the hotel or unless I absolutely need to use it and I don't really see how the trigger could "accidentally" be pulled if utilized this way.
The two main setups I was considering up until recently would be either a CZ P-01 with decocker or a S&W M&P 2.0 Compact with Manual Safety (not concerned about AD with the CZ). Currently, I'm debating swapping the M&P to the version without the safety or maybe potentially a glock 19 as I had owned a 23 in the past and shoot glocks well. Regardless, I'd practice daily as far as drawing and holstering goes. I'm taking my setup into careful consideration as I've bought and sold guns at a loss multiple times and want to make sure I choose wisely this time. As far as pistols, I've owned and sold Glock, Sig, and HK. I currently have a CZ Shadow 2 that's a keeper. This CCW gun would also be my HD gun.
Am I the only one who has gone through an internal CCW debate?
