Concealed Carry

3 Essential Items for Women Who Concealed Carry

If you are a female who is able to concealed carry, you are likely quite familiar with gun laws and the importance of gun safety. Here are three essential items that will make it easier and safer to carry your gun.

A Holster

A concealed carry holster is the safest way to carry your gun in public. Look for concealed carry holsters for women that hold your gun in place and don’t allow it to move even if you have to move aggressively. Give it a “shake test” to ensure that it stays in place. You don’t want to lose your gun — or worse — have it go off accidentally because the trigger has been pressed.

Loose-Fitting Clothing

No matter how you intend on carrying your gun, it should always be worn under a loose-fitting top or pants. Since the goal is the have the gun concealed, you don’t want people to see the obvious “print” of the firearm under your clothing. The fact that you have a gun should be something that you keep to yourself unless the need arises to make it known.

The Proper Gun

This may seem obvious, but it is, perhaps, the most important advice of all. Ensure that you choose a gun that is both simple to carry and also works well for your purposes. Become an expert with any gun you choose before you take it into public so you can avoid any unnecessary accidents. Be a responsible gun owner from the second you choose your weapon to when you have it on your person.

Having the right to carry a concealed weapon is one that should not be taken lightly. Whether you are new to gun ownership or a tenured and experienced owner, ensure that you always have the proper items so that you can carry safely.
