WINTER CARRY: If You Aren’t Practicing This, Then You Aren’t Prepared


Part of carrying a firearm is being prepared. Ok, that’s most of it. I continue to be surprised to hear from concealed carriers that they don’t practice drawing in the clothes that they wear on a day to day basis. If this is you, I urge you to change your bad habits… starting today.

Let’s say you’re out in the dead of winter and you’re wearing your fancy new winter jacket. Let’s say it’s unzipped. A little practice of moving that jacket out of the way goes a long way, and is a pretty simple implementation. But what if your jacket is zipped up? Now we’re talking a whole other scenario for gaining quick access to your firearm if you really need it.

The last thing you want is to be fumbling around to get your firearm. When seconds count, your preparedness matters.

The young gentleman in the video above nails this concept in a great way. He hammers home the point of practicing in what you wear.

A hoodie vs a zipped up jacket can have a completely different feel, and one may be tighter around your waist than the other. The point is; practice with every single garment that you wear while carrying concealed.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
