Every day carry can open one’s eyes to a lot of things.
Thinking about what I’ve experienced in the past, I realize that I’ve learned a lot.. Read these facts below.
The first thing I learned was that normally, people are pretty naive.
I actaully sincerely mean that. You’re convinced, at first, that everyone can see the gun that you’re carrying. After a couple of weeks, you begin to realize that people are far more immersed in their phones than your appearance.
2. A frightening situation can alter one’s views on guns very fast.
3. Why you can’t settle for just any belt.
You want a sturdy belt that will support your gun while keeping it near you, and that won’t allow it to flop arounfd. A good belt is key to having your holster fit properly.
4. The necessity of a good holster
What should you expect from a good holster?

A time may come when you have to get your gun quickly. In this instance, your trigger would be protected. By having your gun in a holster, you are keeping the trigger protected until your hands are securely on the firearm.
You stay in control with your gun. Make sure you invest in a holster that will keep your gun secure through your range of daily activity whether that includes getting in and out of cars, working outside or any other sort of physical activity.
5. Be careful when you bend over
A number of carry methods can cause printing dysfunction if you’re not careful. Typical belt style holsters can press the gun’s grip against you if you are leaning forward too far. You learn pretty fast that the best way to avoid this is to change the way you grab things.
6. How many other people carry concealed.
Conceal carrying makes you want to look for other people who are carrying…kind of like a “where’s waldo” of guns. Whatever tips you off that someone is carrying a firearm, DON’T do what they’re doing.
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 there a more comfy way to carry? Sure. Would there be easier ways? Absolutely. Do you have to adjust your dress code? Most likely. But when it comes to attributes designed to save your life in an emergency, it’s tough to beat.
10. You don’t know anything.
You will always have things to learn when you start to carry a gun. Just because you own a gun doesn’t mean that you’ll never be ambushed. Carrying a gun is literally a matter of life or death, so make it a point to learn something new each and every day.
