Concealed Carry 101: What They Didn’t Tell You During Firearm Training
If you ask me the CCW or the open carry is a necessary part of life here in America. We are facing so many threats. The country is divided and we have Muslim radicals hiding in the shadows while we are busy fighting with one another.
Your ability to protect yourself changes everything. Having a weapon gives you the power of choice. If you are attacked by someone or multiple attackers your choices get limited. With a gun, you have the power. Firearms are the great equalizer.
The first thing to consider is the type of holster you are going to use. You can buy minimalist Kydex holsters or leather holsters. There are also combo holsters, as well. The combos are some of the best for comfort but Kydex makes it very easy to carry a weapon. They are light as air.
Once you find out what type of holster you want to carry you will have to consider where to carry that firearm.
You can carry a firearm almost anywhere but there are a few places that are more popular than others.
Also known as appendix or front carry, the 12 O’Clock position is a very interesting position that is one of the quickest to access. With the right holster, it is not as uncomfortable as you would think.
On your right hip. It’s a very common location and one that makes sense for people who are right-handed. It puts the firearm in a natural position where your arm hangs. This can be very effective when it comes to draw speed.
At the small of your back is another popular spot to nestle that holster. This area is less convenient compared to the first two but it keeps the weapon out of the way
The choice is yours!
