Thought it would be good for the members that are on the fence about carrying in condition 1

If you really want a difference comparison, try timing "one not in the chamber" vs "not carrying"

Still, I'd have to agree that carrying chambered is more effective and suitable for most cases, even though I personally don't.

Food for thought, Travon would still be walking around and George would have his brains laying on the sidewalk if there wasn't one in the chamber. If your busy fending off an attacker with your off hand you better have it ready to rock and roll with one in the pipe. It's a gun not a club.
