    Is keeping a gun chambered prohibited in Pakistan?

    Few of my friends and an renowned Arms shop guy told me that keeping a Gun Chambered with a round is prohibited, they further added, If law enforcement agencies caught you with a chambered gun (even if you have all the eligible documents) they will take offensive actions against you in simple words they said its a crime.

    Is it true?

    Don't know about Pak, but it wouldn't be unheard of. There did used to be such a law in California allowing carry only of an unloaded firearm.

    Brother, never heard and read so....

    Infact its against the very purpose of gun owning...!

    Just my humble opinion... seniors may guide you more appropriatly...

    Unfortunately such a law does exist in fine-print somewhere, at least in Karachi it is a widespread law that carrying chambered indicates "intent to kill" and therefore is prohibited, however I still carry cocked n locked...

    I think it applies only during section 144, even IF you have a 144 permit.

    Regards.
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage, than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

    No it's not allowed to carry one in chamber, but you can always make it empty by shooting it whenever some one wants to check.

    I guess its not chambering a gun. Its more about not carrying it concealed in regular days and keeping it in your reach in 144. Carrying a licensed disassembled shotgun in trunk (e out cartridges) isn't a threat at all in any case. So, keeping a chambered or unchambered handgun with you will sound as alike. IMHO.
    Remember the first rule of gunfighting ... have a gun.

    And Karachi having a perpetual 144 imposed since as far back as i can remember, the prohibition of carrying chambered applies.

    I suppose the Law for Karachi is different to Punjab due to the high Criminal activities there and killings. May Allah ease the pain and suffering for the Beautiful City of Karachi and destroy those who are causing the problem. Ameen
