Concealed Carry

Just wondering how many carry a firearm for personal protection on their person or in a vehicle.

I have a Glock 27 .40 cal and would like a holster to carry maybe an ankle or in the pants.Any suggestions on a holster for carrying on the body?

The trick is to conceal the bulge. I carry a Glock 27, usually in a lightweight shoulder rig. But I've used an inside-the-pants holster to carry while wearing shorts and a T-shirt. I was a little paranoid about it being noticeable, but my teenage kids had no idea, so I guess it worked.

Here in AZ there was an incident that a person carring concealed shot a burgler when she tried holding up the place. He shot four times with a 45 and hit his target twice.

Nationwide, PD's report that only 10% +/- of shots fired hit their intended target. Kind of scary considering that not much is said about all the errant rounds that missed.

For this reason, Shot Placement is #1, Choice of Bullet = #2, and Choice of Caliber is #3.

Thumbs up Absolutly. I agree with that logic. You figure that most of the true gunfighters in the old west that lived was because they were able to hold steady and aim under duress and fire to ensure that they hit their target everytime. No second chances in those days.

no need to conceal it besides it is against the law to carry it concealed even in vehicle just leave it in plain site and they know not to mess with you then.

Concealed Carry

Many police officers appreciate responsible citizens who care enough to get the proper training in order to qualify for a Concealed Carry Permit.

A Licensed Permit enables trained citizens more flexibility and in essence, they provide a service to society - almost like unto under-cover police officials.

While it's mandatory to disclose to an inquiring officer that you have a Concealed Carry Permit (whether you're carrying or not), I've never seen one who was not appreciative for a responsible citizen's service in somewhat backing them up.

Risk to police officers and society is greatly reduced concerning honorable citizens propers trained on the use of firearms.

Those with Concealed Carry Permits are involved in far less shootings or controversial issues than PD's and are viewed as honest, law abiding citizens - just the opposite of those who (literally and figuratively) have hidden agendas / something to hide.
