I have tried to search the site to find out if all or any of you carry the Steyr m a-1 with one in the chamber. I can't get a true and definite answer. I have the A-1 in 40sw, found a neat IWB holster and want to carry it with one in the pipe. What is the traditional answer, is it safe given the fact that there is no manual safety and I should rely on the trigger safety. I havent had any problems with the Steyr with 300+ rounds through it but I dont want to lose a leg...or ****. Anyway for you professionals is it advisable to carry the A-1 with a loaded chamber.
