There are a lot of great YouTube channels out there that deal with firearms and concealed carry. One that we’ve been starting to share on a semi-regular basis is TheFirearmGuy. He’s to-the-point, likable, and doesn’t add any extra BS into his videos.

In the above video recently uploaded to his channel, Dan walks n00bs through different carry methods… and which are the most comfortable for most people.

Here are four very comfortable ways to carry a handgun. Your choice should be chosen by the quickness of the draw, comfortableness, and what needs to change carry correctly.

Give it a watch and let us know if you agree. What’s your preferred location of carry?

    The most comfortable way to carry a handgun is open-carry (OC) in a OWB holster, period. No matter where you put your gun when carrying concealed (CC), it’s a compromise re: comfort. And I’m talking about carrying all day long, whether standing, sitting, walking, jogging — whatever you do. ALL DAY carry, and doing it “comfortably.”

    And the larger the gun, the harder it is to accomplish “concealing comfortably” (which may even be an oxymoron).

    With an OWB holster, you can carry as LARGE a handgun as you want — just try concealing a .44 Magnum/.50AE Desert Eagle “comfortably.” I can’t even CC a 1911 “comfortably,” so my CC guns HAVE to be smaller. So hardware-wise, I’m “better armed” when I OC than when I CC.

    But when I MUST CC (necessary when visiting Texas), it either goes into a pocket, or, in an ankle holster, where I CAN carry relatively comfortably all day long (a compact 9mm is about the largest gun carried in my ankle holster, otherwise it’s a Beretta .32 auto or a S&W M60 Chief’s Special revolver). Yes, the ankle holster is probably the slowest way to carry concealed, but it sure is LOTS faster than leaving the gun @ home or in the car — because it can’t be carried “comfortably.”

    And leaving it @ home or in the car violates Rule # 1: Have a gun ON you and at ALL times…but the fact is an UNcomfortable gun just doesn’t get carried, does it.

    So what is “comfortable” may be different for each of us…

    BTW, even if a Desert Eagle in an OWB holster wasn’t “comfortable,” it would still be “comforting.” I could live with that trade-off. ;-)

    I and many others have found the appendix IWB carry the most comfortable, concealable and fastest access. Having to reach around behind is awkward. The shirt can ride up and expose the gun and you don’t even realize it because you can’t see it. And this guy wears a loose baggy shirt which will conceal damn near anything. I can conceal my pistol under a T-shirt.

    But carry your gun anyway you want and I’ll do the same.

      Yes…the MAIN thing is to CARRY, however you do it.

      And at ALL TIMES.
