grappling with b g with strong arm free, wounded in left arm, other traumatic injury to one arm.
It's covered in training for various courses and there are tons of videos on how to perform the technique. I'd say, if you're grappling with someone, you're doing it wrong.

I wanted to provide an alternative to not carrying +1, as people do not carry +1.

Carrying loaded

I always carry with the gun loaded, ALWAYS. I have familiarized myself to each handgun I own, and went through enough holsters to start my own store. Get to know the gun WELL, then get a holster that prevents an embarrassing discharge, or a discharge that could harm you or someone you do not want to harm. You get accustomed to having a round in the chamber. My belief is to be ready if the time comes when I may have to use my weapon, and I pray that time never comes. I carried a Colt 1911 in the
Army along with an M16, and a 45 caliber "grease" gun. Along with these personal weapons our tanks had 30 caliber machine gun, a 50 caliber machine gun, and the main gun which on my tank was a 105 cannon. Plenty of firepower. All of the personal guns were cocked and locked. Meaning they were loaded and ready to go. Even the main gun had a round in the chamber. So yes load it and carry it. You willget used to it, and it may just save your life.

If your worry is a half-cocked trigger, carry a revolver.

It's sad to see so many people on here advocates of the nanny state.
Nanny State? Come on! We're talking about a little training for carrying a deadly weapon. It's no different than the obvious need for a driver's license, speed limits, stop lights/signs, drinking ages and the like?

I think it should be a MORAL, not LEGAL, obligation to seek training and practice. I had already trained and practiced concealed carry tactics A LOT before I got my permit.

I agree with you in the moral obligation to seek training as opposed to it being state, or federally, mandated.... But let's be honest for a minute. How many people are that morally driven?

Disclaimer: You may see, now and again, me say some things that are REALLY stupid. I am a firm believer in having a holistic view of a situation and tend to argue the other side of the point, whether I believe in it or not. I do believe, in this instance, believe that most people would seek training to better prepare themselves for that uncertain scenario. I say most because there are always people who will carry because they thing "carrying a gun around is cool" or "if people just know I have a gun, they won't bother me." I fully believe in "train the way you fight and fight the way you train."

this is your comment in an earlier thread:

opie:
If you're racking the slide, you are brandishing and responding to a threat.

how does michigan view unholstering & racking the slide, just being friendly?

In FL, there is no use of the word "brandishing" but there is "inappropriate exhibition" or something like that. They basically describe brandishing in that "exhibiting in a rude, angry, or threatening manner" as being a misdemeanor. Having a shirt raise up to display isn't a crime. It's starting to sound like Florida has very lax laws on this....

"Is that gun loaded?"

Welcome! I'll use an incident that occurred to me a couple of years ago to illustrate and underscore the above points. I was carrying open with my 229 in a holster (I do have a CC permit), stopped for gas, and went in to pay for my gas. W,hole I was waiting to pay, a lady asked me, "Is that gun loaded?" I responded, "Yes ma'am, it's not much use unloaded.". She says, "isn't that dangerous?". I looked her in the eye and said - very respectfully, "If I'm around and someoene were to assault you it would be VERY dangerous."
