Here is a list of things that you may find out when you begin to carry your gun everyday.
Reflecting on my experiences carrying a gun daily for near a couple of decades, I figured out that I’ve learned a couple of things. Take a look below.
1. It is pretty common for the average passeryby to have no clue.
This fact is not necessarily bad. You’re convinced, at first, that everyone can see the gun that you’re carrying. After 2 or 3 weeks, you can see that the public is too focused
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. 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 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. 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.
You could possibly be put in a position where you have to get your gun quickly. A safe holster keeps the trigger completely protected until you have a proper, and safe, grip.
You stay in control with 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 down can cause problems
A number of carry methods can cause printing dysfunction if you’re not careful. 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. The number of people who also conceal carry
You begin to search for others who also carry when you first start to carry. 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.
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.
Prosecutors and the perps’ family members will try to take your money and freedom even if the shooting is completely justifiable.
9. It’s hard to beat a traditional belt holster.
Regardless of whether you prefer IWB or OWB holsters, on-the-belt carry is had to beat for gun security and quick accessibility. 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 will always have things to learn when you start to carry a gun. Having a firearm doesn’t make you safe. Your goal should be to learn something each day so that when it comes to a life or death situation, you can be ready.
