As long as you are comfortable and confident, you rock and roll. None of any of this matters without being able to confidently carry gun in a way that YOU are comfortable with. There are some rules that should never be broken and some rules that are kind of like once you get to the point you are breaking them, you are past the skill and knowledge of those telling you that they are rules. An example being "always carry a round in the chamber".How dare you? Carry without a live round chambered in a single action striker fired pistol? Sacrilege!
I too have decided to carry with an empty chamber. I will explain why for those who care.
First and foremost I do not want a negligent discharge to ruin my life and/or the life of anyone else.
Second, I always know the state of my pistol and know that I have to rack the slide to change that condition.
Third, I am not in a hurry to shoot my pistol without surveying the situation, assessing the threat, and the chances of a successful retreat. I do not want to rush to judgement on a life altering choice.
Lastly, if I take the time to assess the situation as I rack the slide I won't be so likely to shoot the wrong guy.
As a side bonus, if someone is able to disarm me I may be able to keep him from killing me by preventing him from chambering a round.
YMMV or (your mileage must vary)
