I don’t think he is asking about carrying with empty chamber, I think it is after racking slide do you pop mag out to top it off.

I don’t top off.
My comments were addressing 2 questions in one post. But to be more accurate on this question- on my subcompact 9mm I ALWAYS top off. On my 1911- I may or may not, depending on where I am and what ammo is nearby.

Yes the first quote. Is what I am talking about. Chamber one then take out mag and top it off. Also sometimes I do the dud round drill where you pull the trigger on a snap cap then tap rack bang. That’s what I mean when I said it’s sometimes hard to rack the slide with a full mag and one in the pipe. Sometimes I suck at words and forget to say them.

Re: Mag capacity + 1 or just what it holds

My Glocks have never had the issue but a 45 shield was a little harder to rack if loaded full plus one. It never one time malfunctioned so that’s how I used it.

Mag capacity + 1 or just what it holds

I began thinking. Is it better to carry 15+1 in a gun that has a 15 round mag or is it better to carry 15 in the mag rack one in and leave it at that. I know some guns I have had when loaded to capacity then rack one and then top off the mag and insert, it would put a lot of pressure on the mag and slide and become difficult to insert. For this reason and increased reliability I download my AR mag 1-2 rounds depending on the spring...
