I was speaking with a mom who had three children ranging from 3 to 12 the other day. She was debating getting her concealed carry permit. I told her I thought it was a great idea if she was willing to put in the time to train - she was.
Turns out, her biggest concern wasn’t training or having a firearm (the family already has them in the home and has started teaching the kids age-appropriate gun safety). Her concern was that her youngest at 3 would get the gun out of the holster when she was wearing it.
We discussed how tight a holster should hold a firearm and the variety of retention holsters that are on the market. While I didn’t think she’d need the retention holster, she liked the option because she wanted to make sure the little one would never get it out of the holster without her knowing something was up. After our conversation, she signed up for the concealed carry class!
