Its like a dummy light for your engine oil.... YOU should be checking the chamber visually to make sure it is NOT loaded regardless of the LCI... thats how NDs happen because people get too comfortable with the weapon and too confident in themselves.This open talk about NDs has got me wondering... Why all the hatred of the LCIs, I know that they can be a bit unsightly for some but to me it seems that their observance may have prevented some of these mishaps. I know that on my LC9, the LCI is a bit obvious. Guess I just don't really understand why so many harbor such disdain for what could possibly aid in preventing a tragic accident. I even sorta like mine, its like the little pistol is shouting "all loaded and ready to go!"
If you are handling a firearm without bothering to first VISUALLY check the chamber to see if it is loaded then you should NOT be handling a weapon period
Check your weapon and ANY weapon you pick up EVERY time!!!
