Instructors hear this story all of the time. Someone decided to get their concealed carry permit for one reason or another and after a few days/weeks/months of carrying concealed they give it up. It is really unfortunate that this happens and if you could count yourself among those who don't carry as often as you should or as often as you used to then we will be publishing a series of articles over the next two weeks that are just for you.
This series of articles titled “Falling Back In Love With Carrying Concealed” will discuss the different reasons we most often hear from people that they don't carry their firearm. Below is a list of the different articles we will be publishing during the next two weeks. As each one “goes live” on the site we will link to it from the below list so coming back here to this article will always give you direct access to each of these as they become available.
While you are waiting to hear more, use the comments below to let us know if you feel we have missed any of the primary reasons why people don't carry their firearm.
