As the President of ConcealedCarry.com I've spent years teaching people concealment mindset, tactics, laws, and skills. Recently however I discovered that there is something far more foundational and important than I ever could have imagined.
You see, it doesn't matter if you know how to shoot, if you know the rules of engagement, or if you can hit targets at 25 yards; if you don't have a gun on you to begin with.
The most recent data shows that over 24.5 MILLION American adults have a concealed carry permit. Yet, relatively few carry a firearm on them on a regular basis.
The top reason why they don't? Firearms are hard to conceal and they can be uncomfortable.
So, even though we think of the actual act of putting a firearm in a holster and putting it on your body in a manner that is comfortable and concealed as extremely basic and foundational to concealed carry; it is actually the greatest barrier that prevents people from taking proactive steps toward their own defense.
Thank you for considering this holsters & concealment course. I'm confident you won't regret it!

Nothing else about concealed carry or firearm-related self-defense matters if you don't have quick access to a firearm when your life is on the line.
Sadly the data tells us that a very low percentage of people who go to the effort of getting a concealed carry permit and/or committing to carrying a firearm some or all of the time actually do.
The majority of firearm owners, including those with permits, give up on the idea of regular concealed carry.
What do you think the top reason is for giving up? According to our survey data of thousands of former concealed carry class students…
Even Those That Carry End Up With A “Box of Holsters”
Even those who do carry regularly on average own more than 4 holsters each on average because comfort and concealment are dealbreakers to carrying a gun.
Comfortable is a relative term and we are all looking for the next best holster which will increase comfort and concealment.
The problem is rooted in education and training.
Overcoming discomfort and poor concealment probably isn't something you can solve by buying a new holster.
You might get lucky… and just get the right holster with the right layout, hardware, and setup that just works perfectly for you.
More likely your next holster will fail you if you don't understand the principles of concealment and how the holster plays into an overall strategy.
Effective concealment is about understanding a series of important principles, how those principles manifest themselves with holsters, guns, clothing, and belts, and how you leverage those principles to work with your own body.
So we set out to create a course that teaches and illustrates those principles to remove the mystery of concealment and comfort.
Since the holster is the primary element that affects concealment and comfort much of the conversation relates to holsters.
5 and 1/2 hours of online video content that covers in depth the principles of concealment from clothing to belts and everything in between.
This online video training program gives you the tools to build a concealment system tailor-made for your body, your gun, and your mission.
Taught by experts (more below) and given from the perspective of both men and women, this is the most comprehensive course ever created on this topic.
You might be thinking that we made this video course as a simple way to sell you a holster, a belt, or some other gizmo.
In Fact, There Is No Name Calling
Over 5 hours of content and this course doesn't endorse a single product or promote any brand over any other brand. When necessary or relevant a few products are named but almost without exception there is no name-calling; good or bad.
Remember this isn't about a product. It is about you learning principles and understanding what works and what doesn't work.
The idea is to give you a methodology and the information necessary to make your own decisions. Not make them for you.
Instructors Riley Bowman and Annette Evans cover different carry positions, how to overcome obstacles to comfort and concealment, holster materials, hardware, belts, and much more.
Lessons in this course include:

There is a lot of useful information in this course. I viewed it all online while waiting for the DVDs. I always like to get DVDs for online courses since sometimes the internet doesn’t work and I can then use the DVDs.
