Conceal Carry

Hey guys and Gals I thought maybe you could share some thoughts on CC for the newer carriers or someone who is thinking about carrying.
Dos and don'ts and your favorite carry guns and favorite holsters.
Thanks Guys and Gals

Re: Conceal Carry

Take a gun safety class if you haven't taken any. Worth it's weight in gold compared to hand me down instructions.

Invest in quality holsters and avoid nylon IWB's, Uncle mike's type holsters.

don't carry anything bigger than you can shoot accurately and quickly, combined.

Make sure you get your CC Permit...

Re: Conceal Carry

regarding holsters, I'm partial to IWB types from CompTac and Crossbreed, I think they're some of the best IWB out there if you like Hybrid holsters.

Re: Conceal Carry

A good belt and holster helps a ton...a weak belt and sloppy uncomfortable holsters means no comfort...


Gun is a really personal thing...something you can shoot well and carries well for you is best..I like a 4" 1911. Slim and carries well...but at the same time it is completely shootable...I can dump a mag on target...can't do that with my baby glock in 40s&w even with mag grip extensions...little bigger just jumps out ta your hand after a few rounds..

Picking out a gun and holster you are comfortable with is key...if not you will find yourself not carrying it....a gun not carried isn't doing any good...

Re: Conceal Carry

I prefer to carry in an IWB holster.........

I usually carry a 3.5" 1911 in a Comp-Tac Minoataur strong side @ 4 o' clock.....

Like mentioned above, it has to be a gun you are comfortable with , and be able to put a group in a person sized target

A good belt is also a must for CC

Re: Conceal Carry

Your body size and type have a lot to do with the size of gun and holster that works for you as far as concealing and being able to draw from various positions. Your "wardrobe" may need to change or adjusted a little depending on all of the above advice.

Re: Conceal Carry

I like the inside the pants waist band holster that has a clip to secure it, my jacket hides it. Now that warm weather is here, I can drop my shirt tail over the grips. I don't like it being seen by even the good guys!

Re: Conceal Carry

I have fallen asleep with a j frame in my pocket....38 special snub nose or a .357 with some mid range loads in it is what I would go with.

Re: Conceal Carry

Whatever gun you plannin on carrying it doesnt do ya any good if ya dont carry it because its too big or uncomfortable
