Default Do you carry "+1" in your semi-auto?

I was talking to a pistol instructor friend of mine where he advised me to not carry "+1" in my semi-autos. I've never had any trouble carrying +1 in my Sig P232 in hundreds of rounds through it.
Just wondering what the consensus was on whether to carry +1 or not.

An example:
For example, if your magazine is a 10-round magazine when crammed absolutely full, you've got 1 in the chamber and 10 in the magazine, for a total of 11 rounds.
He was saying to load the magazine full, insert it, chamber a round, and leave it be. So, in my above example the gun would be stoked with 10 rounds - 1 in the chamber and 9 remaining in the magazine.
