Concealed carry on its own is a power move. It guarantees self-protection for crucial moments when you unexpectedly need it the most. You never know where or when a life-changing event that would require self defense can occur, and you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to always remain prepared. Being responsible with a concealed firearm is the best way to go while waiting for authorities to arrive.
In 2019, an estimated 18.66 million Americans became legally permitted to conceal carry. Just imagine how the numbers will grow in the years to come!
As our community grows, we should all know one thing: there's more to concealed carrying than just putting a gun in your holster. The key to keeping concealed carry a safety standard is the commitment to consistency. Not sticking to it discourages discipline and habit, two things which we need if we want to successfully conceal carry.
Consistency in Habits
Always keep in mind that you may have to use your gun when there’s a threat nearby. In situations like that, tension will rise and panic will start to build up. Being unprepared to draw your gun may render your weapon useless and could lead to you missing an opportunity or the criminal getting an advantage.
The moment you get your firearm, you have to be 100% aware of how to use it, including how you are going to draw and shoot it when needed. Practice this often – in a shooting range, or even in your room (just make sure you unload your bullets first prior to practicing). These exercises let you register these movements in your memory. It will be easier for you to do the movements when you have to use your firearm in real life, putting you at a big advantage in any encounters!
But concealed carry as a habit isn’t limited to how to use your firearm when the need arises. You also need to form the habit of carrying your firearms every day. Leaving behind your gun because of laziness or lack of discipline means you are leaving behind your means of protection.
It is critical to accustom yourself to concealed carrying everyday. The BravoBelt’s versatility makes this very easy in any situation. It has an All Day Comfort + Flex Fit Design, with a new breathable CoolVent perforated neoprene base that lays softly against the body. This allows you to comfortably conceal carry for extended periods, with the belly band holster molding to your body for maximum firearm retention.
Whether you’re at the gym, running, going around town, or lounging around at home, the design lets you always carry everywhere. You never feel tempted to leave behind your gun because it always works!
Consistency in Equipment
When you're not satisfied with your holster, chances are you'll find yourself swapping in between different models each time. At the gym, in the office, at home - you wear different clothes and perform different activities, so you might have to change how you carry for each one. Plus, there can be days when you’d want to carry a different firearm, and then you’d have to change your holster.
Changing holsters for different situations is time-consuming and tedious. You would have to adjust your carry method every time, which can affect how quickly or effectively you can draw your firearm. That's bad when you’re trying to form a habit and develop your muscle memory!
With the BravoBelt, it’s always in the same spot no matter what you wear, where you go, or what you do. You can wear it with anything; suit and tie, jeans, leggings, pajamas, gym shorts, etc. Plus, it’s compatible with Glock 17, 19, 23, 38, 25, 32, 26, 27, 29, 30, 39, 28, 33, 42, 43, 36, Smith & Wesson, Bodyguard, M&P Shield, Sig Sauer, Ruger, Kahr, Beretta, Springfield, Taurus, Kimber, Rock Island, Bersa, Kel Tec, Walther, and more. There’s no need to change carry methods!
Use Tools That Help You Stay Consistent
You’ll never know when you will be put in a position where you’d have to defend yourself. A threat can arise anywhere and any time, even when you are in the safety of your home. It is always recommended that you conceal carry, and that you stay consistent. BravoBelt has versatile and comfortable belly band holsters that always stay in place to help you maximize your concealed carrying potential!
