RE­MEM­BER THESE 9 SHOUL­DER HOL­STER TIPS

ANY­ONE CON­SID­ER­ING US­ING A SHOUL­DER HOL­STER SHOULD BEAR IN MIND THE FOL­LOW­ING POINTS:

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - EXPERT’S CORNER -

01 The jacket must be kept on at all times to keep the hol­ster from be­ing ex­posed. This same is­sue will arise, how­ever, with most belt holsters. On a cou­ple of oc­ca­sions, if it was ab­so­lutely nec­es­sary to re­move my jacket, I wrapped the shoul­der rig with gun in it and kept it on my lap. 02 Care­ful fit­ting is nec­es­sary for com­fort. Fit can be ad­justed by length­en­ing or short­en­ing the straps. 03 It will be nec­es­sary to prac­tice pre­sen­ta­tion of the hand­gun, in­clud­ing re­leas­ing a re­ten­tion strap if present and learn­ing the smoothest method to draw the weapon. Nor­mally, the safety strap should be kept snapped un­less draw­ing. 04 Cloth­ing will have to be cho­sen that is not so light that the straps pat­tern, es­pe­cially at the back. 05 Be­cause the shoul­der hol­ster is worn un­der the arm, it will cause per­spi­ra­tion. As a re­sult, af­ter car­ry­ing the hand­gun in hot weather, it will be nec­es­sary to wipe it down with a lightly oiled rag. It will also be nec­es­sary to hang up the hol­ster to dry out. 06 Ver­ti­cal shoul­der holsters nor­mally have a belt loop that can be af­fixed to keep the hol­ster from mov­ing too much for com­fort. To al­low the most rapid draw, it is im­por­tant to use this loop. 07 A shoul­der rig that in­cor­po­rates a method for car­ry­ing spare ammo is most con­ve­nient. 08 If items are car­ried in an in­side jacket pocket, it is best that they are in a pocket op­po­site the side as the gun is car­ried to pre­vent ex­pos­ing the butt when reach­ing into the jacket. 09 Prac­tice draw­ing the weapon while seated at a ta­ble, desk, or in a ve­hi­cle is ad­vis­able.
