Sun, Fun, Water and Guns, Part 2: Carrying at the Pool | USCCA

In my last blog, we explored some of the challenges of carrying a defensive firearm to the beach. And I shared the importance of removing any saltwater or sand from your gun (and from yourself … and likely from all of your belongings). And since summertime is still enticing a lot of people to get outdoors, this week, we’re heading to the pool!
