Here is a list of things that you may find out when you begin to carry your gun everyday.
Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about gun carrying. Read these facts below.
The typical person really doesn’t have a clue.
This is not a bad thing. Initially, it seems like everyone notices your gun. It becomes apparent after some time, that people are pretty bad at paying attention to anything other tan technology.
2. People who are usually very against guns can change their minds in a split second.
3. Why you can’t settle for just any belt.
A cheapo belt can allow your gun to wiggle around too much while you carry. You want it to be nice and secure, and snug against your body. A good belt is key to having your holster fit properly.
4. The value of a good holster.
There are a few things that a quality holster should do
It will keep your gun in a secure position. It can be distracting to always have to check on your gun’s location. Having your gun in a proper holster will give you the peace of mind knowing that it will be exactly where you want it in the event that you need it.
It protects the trigger. By necessity, you may have to find and grip your gun quickly while under stress. By having your gun in a holster, you are keeping the trigger protected until your hands are securely on the firearm.
Your firearm is protected because you are in charge If you’re going to spend money on a holster, find one that will keep your pistol in position when you are doing things such as getting in or out of your car, doing yardwork, or anything like that.
5. Be careful when you bend over
You might end up accidentally prining if you don’t watch what you’re doing. Printing can easily happen if the gun grip is pressed against your clothing while you bend over. If you carry a gun daily, you quickly learn how to reach low things by bending your knees and keeping your back straight.
6. How many other people carry concealed.
You will find yourself trying to spot other carriers. If you can spot others carrying, consider what tipped you off to their armed status, and don’t make the same mistake yourself.
7. Guns are heavy.
A loaded gun with some extra amo really adds up in weight.
8. Heroism is overrated.
Even after justifiable self-defense shootings, ambitious prosecutors or family members of the perpetrator can take your life savings-and freedom-in the post-event courtroom.
9. It’s hard to beat a traditional belt holster.
No matter what kind of holster you prefer, a belt carry is the most secure. Is it a pain to conceal? Yes. Is it comfortable? Not necessarily. Another downfall is that you may need to change some clothing options, but you will not be let down by this carry method.
10. You don’t know anything.
There is always something new to learn about carrying. Owning a gun won’t necessarily protect you from crime. Going to the range to practice doesn’t necessarily mean you will prevail in a fight. When you carry a pistol, we are talking life and death here. You need to try to learn something new every day.
