Concealed Carry While Carrying a Baby

This isn’t something guys think about – concealed carry while carrying a baby. Concealed Carry While Carry a Baby It doesn’t have to be an either or choice.  There are some things to think about and precautions to take when you mix guns and especially young kids.

I came across an excellent video on the subject. She discuss several issues and steps to take when carrying both a gun and a baby. Here is a short summary:

  1. First of all, safety comes first – the safety of your children, your family and yourself. You are going to have to balance the availability of the weapon to you and the children.
  2. Arm up (put your gun on) in a different area. Don’t mess with the gun and the child at the same time.
  3. Make sure the trigger guard is completely protected by the holster. You never know where small fingers might go, especially when you have a struggling, screaming toddler in your arms.
  4. Carry a child on the opposite hip of your weapon if possible.
  5. Sling carriers are great for handling both the child and the weapon.

She demos some good ways to manage the weapon and the child at the same time.  I would suggest that you go out to the range and practice (WITHOUT the baby) to develop the muscle memory to be smooth when you need to be.

Check out the video and let us know in the comments your experiences with concealed carry with a baby.
