    Great episode! There are some SOLID GOLD nuggets for everyone (men and women). Just shared it with some transcriptions on a Concealed Carry Facebook Group:

    Post:
    Just finished listening to the Concealed Carry Podcast – Episode 197. It fits my philosophy on Concealed Carry so perfectly and explains why I sometimes hesitate to always dissuade someone from off-body carry. (Not ideal, but not evil)
    Anything’s better than leaving it at home – but we can always get better.

    I transcribed a couple small segments to illustrate… The second segment is gold for BUYING a concealed weapon.:

    00:43:37
    For anyone listening to this the key takeaway from concealed carry takeaway world for me, and that is this idea of progression and evolution if a student in my class asks me

    “What’s the way for me to carry”

    No problem: OWB Glock 17, 3 o’clock, with round in the chamber, three spare mags, tactical flashlight on support-side. Go to town, have fun! Right?

    No one can ever achieve that (well maybe Riley can ’cause he’s that dude), but for the most part, all of us have to do something LESS than that – less ideal, but we all have to start somewhere.

    and the takeaway perhaps is that anything we do (assuming it’s not unsafe) is better than leaving that gun home. And we can always improve over time…

    00:57:00
    …You’re not trapped in this dogma of “I need the smallest, lightest thing I can carry.” ‘Cause that’s what I see so often. I mean. So many of the students that come through my classes are like “I’m buying the Glock 43 or an LCP.”

    And I might ask “Well Why?”

    “That’s what I’m going to carry concealed because I can carry concealed, I can carry that concealed”

    They’ve trained their brain to think that’s the way you have to go, small and light.

    Yes, small and light is easier – but does that mean that’s what you SHOULD carry?
