With the proper training and legal steps, carrying a handgun is a right you can practice. Of course, concealing your handgun can be a bit complicated for some because they are unsure of the best way to carry. A purse is always an option to consider, but some men and women prefer to wear their handgun on their person for easy access. With these tips, you will be able to find a conceal carry holster suited to your needs.

Choose the Right Fit

It is important to note that all holsters are not created equal, meaning your specific handgun may not work for every type of holster. Basically, you need to select a holster that will fit your handgun's make and model.

The handgun should fit into the holster perfectly, which means it is not only secure, but easy to access. The actual holster and belt should be secure so there is no movement or sloping. The handgun should glide in and lock into place with ease. You should not have to force it in or out of the holster.

Choose the Right Design

There are also a variety of holster designs to consider. Choosing one can seem overwhelming, but it is important to take your overall style and comfort level into consideration when reviewing your options.

A holster that is worn on your belt/waistline is a popular design because it is easily accessible and works well for both men and women. You can choose a holster that is worn on the side of your belt/waistline or on your back, whichever is most comfortable for you.

Many men and women also love the holster that is worn across their body under their shirt, called stealth holsters. You can also choose from an ankle or thigh holster. These may be a bit more difficult to access, especially if you need to access your handgun quickly in the event of an emergency.

Try out a few different styles to determine which is right for you.

Choose for Confidence

The way your handgun fits into the holster and the actual way you wear your holster are all important factors to consider when you want to conceal carry. However, you also need to select a holster that helps you remain confident in your ability to access and use the handgun if and when necessary.

Make sure to practice removing the handgun multiple times from the holster you are wearing. If you are struggling in any way to remove the handgun from the holster or access it quickly enough, you should choose another option.

You need to be confidant in the fact that you can and will be able to access the handgun efficiently and effectively even in stressful conditions.
