I've done those drills ( including the one at the end, gets adrenaline up ), and while they do work, I prefer to carry locked and loaded. During
combat, whether real or simulated, you're mostly going to get only a flash sight picture or do point shooting anyway. At pistol ranges, with training,
it gets the job done.
With a modern pistol, there's no reason not to carry locked and loaded. Unless you're carrying a Saturday night special, it's not going to go off on
it's own, even if dropped.
Floating firing pin weapons are different. My rifles and shotguns are kept in the following fashion:
1 ) Chamber empty
2 ) Full mag or tube, inserted
3 ) Safety off
This way, no chance of a bump discharge, but it can quickly be brought into action.
