I still can't convince myself to carry around a loaded pistol in my pants.
Easy. Don't carry Mexican style like Mr Burress (meaning, no holster covering the trigger).
Every holster on the market now (or a vast majority) cover the trigger in some form or another. My gun cannot go off unless the trigger is directly manipulated, as is the exact same case here with douchebag Bob blaming the gun and not the guy.
I was a bit nervous about CC at first but now it's commonplace and I'm comfortable with it. Still, I never ever ever ever ever forget my rules of gun safety. Just because I'm used to it doesn't mean I need to get complacent.
Better to have a magazine full and none in the chamber than no gun at all
This is certainly true. But I only suggest this for new CC'ers. Once they get comfortable with it and realize the trigger won't pull itself, they see the practicality in having the gun ready to go. But, a gun is better than no gun, for sure.
