For anyone looking to obtain a concealed carry permit, you may need to complete a class as part of the process. The requirements vary from state to state, but for those who find themselves in a concealed carry course, there are a few additional things you need to consider.
Everyone’s Watching YouWhen you start carrying you’ll think your handgun sticks out, constantly drawing eyes your way. Once you’ve carried for a week or two, the feeling that everyone is warily watching you will subside.
Unless you’re carrying a larger pistol or wearing tight-fitting shirts, your gun won’t stick through and alert those around you. If you need a bit of reassurance to ease your mind, throw on a zip-up hoodie or light jacket for extra coverage until you get used to the feeling of having your gun on your hip.
Just remember, avoid tight-fitting apparel and do a spot-check in the mirror before you head out the door. It really is that easy.
