In speaking with more concealed carriers, I realized that two groups fundamentally disagree with one another on carrying a concealed handgun with a round in the chamber. This is not an article intended to bash those who do not carry their firearms with a round in the chamber
Articles that emphasize and teach about firearm safety rules and issues at home, when carrying, and at the range.
Instead I want to present the criteria you should be considering, and then you can take these considerations and find what fits you best. Let’s break down the considerations into four major topics: manufacturer, caliber, size and weight, and function.
As well intentioned as you may be, carrying a concealed firearm may not be a part of your everyday lifestyle. If you want to establish the habit of carrying concealed you must first understand how habits are formed and broken
For those of you who spend time at clubs or the bar, or even participate in bowling leagues, poker nights, or other environments where people are expected to throw back a few beers, you may feel like you have to leave your firearm at home more often than you bring it with you.
You might be surprised by the list of things here that won’t stop a bullet. When you are seeking cover from fire you should know what types of objects you should get behind.
Cover refers to anything that protects you from the threat. If you attacker(s) has a firearm then cover would be anything you can put between you and the oncoming bullets that would protect you from the bullets.
