Holsters for New Gun Owners

Spread the love

Every state in the United States has laws that allow concealed carry firearms. As a matter of fact, there are nearly 20 million Americans already permitted to carry concealed weapons. If you are new concealed carry or are thinking about joining the ranks of responsible gun owners, there are some things you need to know.

One of those is how to safely, responsibly, and stylishly carry your firearm. This short guide will tell you the types of holsters you might choose for your carrying needs.

1. Hip Holstering

Companies like Blackhawk and Desantis Holsters have been making a variety of hip holsters for decades. It is the most popular holstering style, and for good reason. Hip holster can be comfortable, safe, and easy to use when the need arises.

If you plan to carry a hip holster, know that you’ll need a heavier duty belt than normal to account for the added weight of your gun. You’ll also need to decide if you want your holster inside or outside your waistband.

2. Ankle Holstering

This is a popular option among many gun owners for two big reasons. First, your ankle is an easy place to conceal your firearm. Most holsters are slim enough that they can’t be seen under a pant leg. Second, they are comfortable. If putting a gun on your hip or under your arm hampers you when you walk, this may be the option for you.

There are cons, as well. Of course, larger firearms don’t fit well on your ankle. It can also be more difficult to draw your weapon discreetly from an ankle. Consider these things when choosing how you want to carry.

3. Shoulder Holstering

You’ve, undoubtedly, seen plenty of movies or TV shows with detectives slinging their shoulder harnesses on under their jackets. There is a reason it is such a popular image. Shoulder holsters like these can be very comfortable.

They can be both easy to use and perfect for concealment. Many gun owners find shoulder holsters to be easier to move in and quicker to draw from. You’ll have to try one out before deciding if that is the case for you, as well.

The bottom line for any gun owner is that carrying a weapon is a personal thing. You need to try out as many holstering options as you can to find what works for you. In general, look for something that is comfortable, easy to wear all day, safe, and easy to use.
