116. Cant stop stupid. The newer glocks have a loaded chamber indicator
so you can see if it is "loaded". It would take a true idiot to use this as the primary check vs racking the slide. Still I have stripped many handguns without incident, including glocks.

Failure to follow the 4 rules makes an embarrassing incident a potentially lethal one.
