For many people who possess a concealed carry permit, it is vital to be able to discreetly carry their weapons when they leave the house. Here are some solutions if you do not want to go out in public without easy access to your firearm.
Choose Loose Fitting Clothing
If you are carrying the gun in a holster or in your pants, there are steps you can take to avoid the firearm being noticed. Clothing that is not tight can make it harder to tell you are carrying. Additionally, patterned clothing can distract the eye and conceal the bulge of the gun, even if it is tighter. Choose a belt that can accommodate your gun as well.
Wear Specially Designed Apparel
Although it is relatively easy to concealed carry wearing your normal clothes, there are benefits to undercover clothes, or items that are specifically designed for gun owners who are concealed carrying. These come in a wide range of styles, such as tank tops, leggings, jackets and vests. Many of the items have a designated place for your handgun that is less visible but still easily accessible should you need it quickly.
Carry at Formal Events
For extra protection, you may want to carry your weapon when you are attending an event with a strict dress code, which may not always be forgiving towards concealing a firearm. For instance, if you are wearing a tuxedo, an ankle holster might be an ideal option. You can even meet with a tailor to design formalwear that allows you to have your gun with you at all times.
Whether you are going to the grocery store or to a fancy gala, there are many options for keeping your concealed carry firearm close to you, completely secure, and most importantly, hidden from the view of the public.
