Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are carrying a concealed firearm.

Invest in a Comfortable, Secure Concealed Carry Holster:

  • A quality holster is essential. It must securely hold your pistol and be comfortable enough for daily wear.
  • Never carry without a holster; pocket carrying or other methods without a holster can lead to accidents.
  • Choose wisely, as your holster is a critical part of your concealed carry system¹.

Dress for Success: Concealed Carry Clothing:

  • Opt for loose-fitting clothing that prevents printing (when the outline of your gun shows through your clothes).
  • Tall-size shirts provide extra hem length, helping to conceal your pistol and holster.
  • Dressing appropriately ensures both comfort and discretion¹.

Carry Extra Ammunition and Consider Carrying Two Guns:

  • While most fights can be handled with the ammunition in your gun, exceptions exist.
  • Carry extra rounds in a spare magazine or consider carrying a backup gun.
  • Murphy’s Law can strike unexpectedly, so be prepared¹.

Practice Regularly:

  • Regular practice is crucial. Train drawing from concealment, clearing cover garments, and shooting accurately.
  • Familiarity with your concealed carry system builds confidence and competence.
  • Defensive shooting involves drawing from under your cover garment, aligning sights, and landing accurate shots¹.

Stay Alert and Aware:

  • Adopt a state of relaxed alertness (Condition Yellow) whenever you’re out and about.
  • Know entrances and exits, watch your surroundings, and position yourself for cover and concealment.
  • Avoid dangerous situations and people; the best gunfight is the one you don’t attend¹.

Remember, concealed carry is a serious responsibility. These tips can help you stay safe, but always seek proper training and follow local laws and regulations¹.
