    Tell me what you think. Is a pistol with a fully loaded magazine locked in place but no round in the chamber considered loaded? I say no, it's unloaded.

    I keep a round chambered because in a seconds notice you dont have the time to pull that action and have it ready. Here is a video proving it.

    Yes, but that is not what I asked.

    My police friends say yes but some of them said no. So it depends on the individual making the determination. Now my six shooter is always loaded so that makes it easy to know what anyone would think.

    It is arguable, keep a revolver and remove all doubt.

    The POLICE will consider the weapon loaded whether the bullet is chambered or not, if that is what you are referring to?

    No, I am asking if in general, people say a gun is loaded even though it has no round in the chamber.
