* - Iraqi Offhand is a well known, poorly regarded CQB technique that involves shooting blindly through walls, floors, etc. in the direction of a suspected threat.  As bad an idea as this sounds, it has worked before in the past.
I always thought that "Iraqi offhand" was another name for "High over the head position" used for shooitng over cars, walls, sandbags, etc without exposing yourself too much to return fire.

If I own it, I charge it. Not much good otherwise. That includes one in the chamber for most actions, though there's a few I don't consider that safe for long term unattended storage.

I've always considered a weapon without a round in the chamber to be unloaded, regardless of the condition of the magazine.
 
That way lies accidental suicide, methinks. If you can think of no reason why your gun might not be loaded/charged 24/7, please don't clean your firearms around me.

Scaring off a goblin when racking a shotgun was brought up as a potential beneficial side effect, not a specific recommended tactic.

Well, there is Rule #1, of course.  I tend to shoot mine clean, anyhow.  ;)

Just pointing out that the slide-rack challenge, benefits aside, has some pretty serious drawbacks as well.  I'd avoid it.
