Do You Make These Concealed Carry Mistakes

Unless you have taken a CCW class there is a good chance you might be making at least one of these concealed carry mistakes. Even with a class, you dropping a gunmight have gotten some bad info and have fallen into one of these.

I found a great video that talks about somethings you should keep in mind when carrying.  Now I don’t totally agree with all of these but there are a couple I hadn’t thought of e.g. injuring your back with a SOB carry.

Here is a summary of what he talks about:

  1. Mexican Carry – Carrying the weapon in the waistband with no holster
  2. Pocket Carry – Carrying without a holster is an all around bad idea
  3. SOB Carry – Small of back carry. Bad for your back if you fall on it and not good for weapons retention
  4. Shoulder Carry – Lots of shoulder holsters are worn improperly and weapon is not pointed in safe direction when first drawn from holster
  5. Cheap, nylon holster – Guns will fall out
  6. Too many retention straps on holster
  7. Not practicing with retention straps/system
  8. Gym Bag Carry – Tossing a gun into any sort of bag and not keeping it in your control
  9. Ankle Carry – Having your gun in an cheap ankle holster and not practicing the draw. (I like ankle carry for a secondary weapon or in autos)

Check out the video. He gives a good explanation each of the mistakes. It is worth watching for the captions anyway.

Let us know in the comments what you think of these concealed carry mistakes.
