How to Adjust Concealed Carry Attire for Comfort and Safety

If you have a concealed carry permit, you need a holster to keep your gun safe and secure. But how do you dress to properly hide your firearm? To hide it when you wear the OWB, you may need an undershirt and an outer shirt, such as a flannel or a vest. This is fine for some, but not an option for most. An OWB belt cover requires you to wear belted pants, which is also fine for some but not an option for many, especially in hot climates.

The practice of drawing at home is essential. Check that the gun is unloaded and that you have a safe address, then practice drawing with your holster with your street clothes. This will quickly reveal any problems with the case, carrying position, or cabinet, and frequent practice will increase your comfort level with the gun. Skinny men can have a disadvantage when it comes to carrying appendages.

We recommend wearing it in a vertical orientation for greater comfort or bringing the IWB cover closer to the center line of the body. In addition, people who are thinner tend to report greater comfort when the driving height is high. This prevents the snout from pressing on the lower abdomen or the hip flexors when sitting. Thigh covers, also called saggy leg covers, are ideal for hidden use if you don't want to wear a belt or a waist cover.

Nowadays, carrying the appendix is a bit more sophisticated than it was in the 19th century, with covers, belts and specialized techniques that make it a much safer and more comfortable method of transport. We understand this concern; you want to maintain a comfortable and free range of motion with your hidden luggage. Whether you're an experienced handgun owner or a new owner, you know that carrying concealed weapons isn't a decision to be taken lightly. Fortunately, once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to carry a hidden carrying case confidentially.

If you follow these tips and practice proper safety techniques, you'll be able to carry your concealed carrying case with confidence. Also note that you usually shoot a gun with a full grip better than one that only allows a partial grip, but having a full grip tends to cause the gun to imprint through clothing when you're wearing it hidden.
