Every day carry can open one’s eyes to a lot of things.
I’ve have had the opportunity to find out a lot of things about carrying a gun. Read these facts below.
The first thing I learned was that normally, people are pretty naive.
I actaully sincerely mean that. When you first start carrying, you manage to convince yourself that every person you see in public will spot your gun. It becomes apparent after some time, that people are pretty bad at paying attention to anything other tan technology.
2. A frightening situation can alter one’s views on guns very fast.
3. A quality belt is so important.
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 value of a good holster.
What should you expect from a good holster?
A holster will hold your gun in a fixed position. 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.
It protects the trigger. By necessity, you may have to find and grip your gun quickly while under stress. 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. You want a holster that will keep your firearm secure even when you are moving.
5. Bending down can cause problems
A number of carry methods can cause printing dysfunction if you’re not careful. Whether your holster is an inner waistband or outer waistband, leaning too far out can cause you to print. 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 will find yourself trying to spot other carriers. 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.
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.
Regardless of whether you prefer IWB or OWB holsters, on-the-belt carry is had to beat for gun security and quick accessibility. Is there a more comfy way to carry? Sure. Would there be easier ways? Absolutely. 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. Owning a gun won’t necessarily protect you from crime. Going to the range to practice doesn’t necessarily mean you will prevail in a fight. When you carry a pistol, we are talking life and death here. You need to try to learn something new every day.
