      Carry for a few days with the mag loaded, chamber empty, but the striker in its normal trigger forward(partially cocked) mode. If you have it in a holster you can go about your business and at the end of each day check to see if the gun snapped while you were doing whatever.

      This should convince you that your glock is safe to carry chamber loaded and you won't have to worry about blowing your 'nads off.

      Good luck!!!!!!!!
      Smart test. Good advice. You need to be confident.

      I don't have one in the chamber for HD and would advise anyone that does and has children, guests, or the like to be absolutely sure it it's in a very secured place. I'll take my chances of having time to rack the slide or chamber a shell in my shotgun to confront the situation. I make sure I lock my doors and windows however. One mistake with a loaded handgun can bring tradgedy in an instant. Just remember we are human and humans have been known to become complacent, fatiqued and make mistakes.

      Police have one in the chamber and I bet their backup gun have one in the chamber. I never take a bullet out of the chamber. Instead I have a Gun vault on my night stand that I store my firearm when not in my pocket and of course in a holster that covers the trigger and nothing else goes in the pocket including my hand.

      I was not in the military so someone that was will have to answer this:

      When do the soldiers have a round in the chamber?

      I did some Google research after I posed the question. And the answer I found was "it varies". The most concise answer I found was this:

      "That's a decision made by the commander based on the operation's rules of engagement (ROE), the mission and risk factors."

      So the commander decides whether the risk (to the soldiers) is greater with everyone walking around with a chambered round and ready for a fire fight, or is it safer for the guys to be near-ready with an empty chamber.

      Good point about the military. In combat chambered with safety on. Outside of combat even in armed security roles loaded mag in and empty chamber was my experience. Commanders discretion makes sense as well. We had 1911's and got pretty good at sling shotting the slide at speed. Dumb tactic though. Never been a fan of training to the lowest common denominator.

      Chambered is the way to go and is safe providing the holster is appropriate to the model and the handler doesn't become complacent and make an error. The most dangerous time with a striker fired weapon and no manual safety like a Glock isn't carrying or even drawing but rather reholstering. Finger off the bang switch and slow and deliberate with each and every reholster. Try appendix IWB carry around the house with an empty chamber and you'll get the point.
