Choosing a Holster
To properly conceal your weapon, you need proper concealment gear, including a proper holster. This gear will include a proper holster. Your holster should be made for the weapon you carry. Your weapon should fit securely into the holster so it doesn’t wiggle, bounce or shift when you walk, run or sit. It should allow you to smoothly draw your firearm without catching it on the holster. It should protect the trigger while allowing you to fully grip your weapon as you draw it out. Choose the highest quality holster you can afford and make sure it is made of quality material, such as leather or Kydex.
In some cases, you can’t completely conceal a traditional holster. For example, during the summer, you typically wear lighter or fewer clothes, which can make it difficult to hide your weapon. In this case, you may choose clothing that is made to holster your gun. For example, you may find shirts, jackets, vests and even underwear that have built-in holsters. Although some of these clothes are form-fitting, their holsters are made from high-quality elastics that hold your weapon securely. These types of clothing are made to be worn under other items. Jackets and vests are typically looser and can easily conceal your firearm.
If you don’t want to carry your firearm in your clothing or on your body, you can purchase concealment accessories, such as briefcases, bags or purses. They often have pockets on the outside that allow you to easily get to your gun easily and draw it smoothly.
Getting your gear in order is just the first step. Don’t jump into carrying your concealed weapon without learning everything you can about proper concealment and responsible gun ownership.
