Here is a list of things that you may find out when you begin to carry your gun everyday.
I’ve have had the opportunity to find out a lot of things about carrying a gun. Here’s a short list.
The first thing I learned was that normally, people are pretty naive.
This fact is not necessarily bad. You’re convinced, at first, that everyone can see the gun that you’re carrying. 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. The value of a good belt.
By having a good belt, you are preventing your gun flopping around too much. Something to think about when you can get your holster to fit comfortable is to make sure that you’ve got a good belt on.
4. The importance of a great holster
A good holster does three things:
In order to keep your gun secure, you need a good holster. The value of having your gun in a secure position is that you will know exactly where it is when you need to grab it.
A time may come when you have to get your gun quickly. In this instance, your trigger would be protected. A safe holster keeps the trigger completely protected until you have a proper, and safe, grip.
You stay in charge of your gun You want a holster that will keep your firearm secure even when you are moving.
5. Bending down can cause problems
You can run into a “printing” situation if you aren’t mindful of what you’re doing. Most belt holsters, inside or outside the waistband, can cause the gun grip to press against the back of your shorts or cover garment if you lean forward too much. 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.
Once you start carrying, you tend to look for other people who are also carrying. A good way to learn what not to do is to take those people that you spot carrying, and remember to not make those mistakes.
7. Guns are heavy.
Consider this: even if you buy a lightweight gun, the amo and extra magazines that you’ll carry with it really add up.
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. Although there are some downsides to carrying like this, you will be very happy you did should you ever find yourself in a sticky situation.
10. You don’t know anything.
There is always something new to learn about carrying. Just because you own a gun doesn’t mean that you’ll never be ambushed. Your goal should be to learn something each day so that when it comes to a life or death situation, you can be ready.
