Tactical Belts: Common Concealed Carry Mistakes - Part 2

22nd Dec 2015

Last time, we discussed the first three mistakes that concealed carriers often make with their weapon. However, even with the right training, the proper precautions against exposing your gun and a quality gun holster, you can still make irresponsible choices or oversights. When you need a concealed carry or tactical belt that you can trust, look no further than Crosstac. When you are preparing to be a responsible concealed carry licensee, avoid the following mistakes:

Wearing The Wrong Clothes

With a concealed carry, the point is to hide the fact that you are carrying a weapon. This means avoiding tight-fitting clothing that would risk printing, but it can also mean avoiding head-to-toe tactical gear. Although you may not be able to see the gun in the latter situation, you are letting other people get the impression that you are probably carrying. With experimentation, you’ll be able to find a style that fits you while concealing your weapon.

Constantly Checking Your Gun

Especially if you are new to the concealed carry world, you are going to have the impulse to constantly check your gun. This impulse behavior is almost guaranteed to let someone on that you are carrying a weapon, and can even make you look nervous enough to scare them. The good news is, if you have the right gun holster and conceal carry belt, then you will have no reason to keep checking your gun — it’ll be there when you need it.


Along the same lines but much more noticeable, the act of adjusting your gun, holster or tactical belt in public can get you noticed right away. If you do find the need to adjust, then go into a bathroom stall or your car. However, this problem is easily avoided with the right belt and holster.

Not Enough Practice

The time when you need your gun most is not the time to find out that your ammo, aim or gun isn’t right. Take the time to practice with real ammo, especially self-defense ammo, so you can be prepared when the time comes.
