Carrying a concealed handgun is a great responsibility. You need to conduct more research than if you were purchasing a bicycle but less outlay than if you were purchasing a Harley Davidson. And the effort is worthwhile on every point. If you understand how to use it properly, a handgun might someday help save your life. Choosing a firearm, ammunition, a holster, accessories and less-lethal devices need not be stressful. It only needs to be well-thought-out. Choose quality gear. (The old adage “buy cheap, buy twice” applies here.) Then, obtain training and go through the proper channels to get your concealed carry permit.
