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. Take a look below.
The typical person really doesn’t have a clue.
This is not a bad thing. You’re convinced, at first, that everyone can see the gun that you’re carrying. You learn, after a while, that people are mostly focused on their priorities.
2. Those who once thought of themselves as “anti-gun”, may find themselves being “pro-gun” in an instant.
3. A quality belt is so important.
A quality gun belt will hold the weight of your gun, keep it close to your body, and prevent the holster from flopping around due to belt flex. A good belt is key to having your holster fit properly.
4. The necessity of a good holster
There are a few things that a quality holster should do
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 holster will protect the gun’s trigger, which is what you need if you are ever in a high stress situation. Until you are holding your gun safely, the holster will keep your trigger protected.
You stay in charge of your gun 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. Bending over can get you in trouble-in more ways than one.
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.
You begin to search for others who also carry when you first start to carry. A great exercise is to find those who are carrying, and determine what it was that told you they were carrying.
7. Guns are heavy.
Actually, even light guns get heavy. When you carry a loaded gun and a couple of spare magazines, you’re talking about serious pocket change!
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. It is definitely a hassle to conceal and it isn’t alway comfortable. 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.
You learn so much the longer you carry. You won’t automatically be safe if you have a gun. You don’t have a 100 percent chance of winning a fight even if you practice all the time. Always be open to learning because carrying a gun is life or death.
