Something I used to do when I worked in the projects was keep my first chamber empty (Colt King Cobra 357 revolver). I don't anymore, but I wonder if there is any merit to it now. Reasons: 1) Added safety against accidental discharge. 2) In case someone would grab it, it would give me the edge I need to get it back 3) I could still fire the first loaded chamber quickly, and 5 rounds should do. 4) Reason 4 dropped. Do you think that the first chamber empty is a good idea, or was I not making much logical sense.
