If you have a license for concealed carry, you also need to own the proper gear to safely and appropriately carry your firearm. Here are three useful accessories for concealed carry.
1. Magazine Carriers
When you carry a firearm, you also need to carry the appropriate ammunition for it. This means magazine carriers and holders are some of the most essential concealed carry accessories. There are many choices depending on the type of firearm you own and the reasons for which you own the firearm. You can choose flap-type pouches, open-top pouches and slim-fit pouches, among others. Slim-fit pouches are easier to conceal and open-top ones can be used for speedy loading, while flap-type pouches are the most secure.
2. Fanny Packs
Fanny packs are some of the most versatile accessories for concealed carry. You can purchase specialty fanny packs with holsters built into them or regular mass-marketed fanny packs, according to your preferences and needs. If you’re going to be in situations where you need to quickly draw your gun, a fanny pack may not be the best option for you, but it can be useful in certain situations.
Most people who have concealed carry licenses utilize belts in some capacity. Remember, if you’re going to use a belt holster, you can’t simply attach your holster to a belt you already own. You need a belt that matches the type of firearm you own, such as a wide, leather belt for a relatively heavy gun. Your belt needs to be strong enough to hold your holster steady and keep it horizontal, without drooping or otherwise making it obvious you’re carrying a gun.
The accessories you choose will depend on your interests, preferences and needs. They will also depend on the type of firearm you own. Some guns will be better suited for belts and others for shoulder holsters, for example.
