Concealed carry, my friend, is an art form.
Yoda: “Once you start down the path of the Armed Side, forever will it dominate your destiny.”
Luke: “Look runt, I’ve been carrying a laser blaster since I was twelve! Don’t hold back on warfare training now!” “Not knowing how to fight
seems more dangerous than knowing”
What most people need to understand about self defense is that it is essentially a new way of life. Being armed is less about what weapon that you
have and more about your training and your mindset. All weapons are different, and it does matter, but for a new join to the world of concealed carry
it is not the most important thing.
What you should do is go to a class and then go to a gun range where you can rent different firearms. Then, whatever one you decide on go ahead and
purchase it and start carrying. What you will find over time is that your training, tastes, and situations will change such that you will want to
either trade in your old gun for a different one, or go ahead and get a second gun or other weapon.
I myself am developing a host of different carry methods and weapons. Knives, guns, brass knuckles, kubotons, it’s all fair game and relevant given
the circumstances and the environment. I don’t carry an arsenal of crap on me at all times. What I have developed over time is a lot of tricks in my
bag so to speak.
That’s what will happen to you also. You will develop concealed carry into a life style of self defense. You will go through a lot of different
weapons at first finding the “one” that you want and then realize that all of them have their place and advantages. Then you will start developing
your styles, and your tool box, of self defense.
