If you are a gun owner, you may consider obtaining a concealed carry permit to allow you to legally carry your weapon with you. After obtaining this permit, the next step for you to take is to get the proper holsters, clothing, or accessories to safely carry your weapon.
The most popular carrying aid individuals typically start with is a well-fitted holster. With a wide selection of options, you are sure to find one that meets your needs.
If you choose to use a holster, you will need to consider the best body placement for you; common options are shoulder, waist, and ankle holsters. Choosing a holster is a matter of personal preference to ensure comfort and convenience for each user so it may be in your best interest to test several options before making a decision.
Concealed carry clothing offers you the option to conceal your weapon without needing to carry any additional accessories. Common options include compression clothing, jackets/vests, and jeans.
Another option you may want to consider is a belly band, which works similar to compression clothing, but instead is a single band that goes around your waist. Belly bands are great for those that want a comfortable and versatile option.
If you do not want to carry your weapon on your body, the other option for concealed carry is to keep it with you in a specially designed accessory such as a purse, backpack, or fannypack. The option to carry within an accessory as opposed to with a holster or your clothing allows you to have your gun nearby without having it physically attached to your body as it is with clothing or holster options.
Each of these carrying options offers both pros and cons so be sure to consider all sides to help in making the best decision to meet your gun-carrying needs.
