Did you know that almost 40 million guns were purchased in 2020 in the United States?

Keep reading to learn your gun holster options.
One of the main factors to take into consideration is ensuring that the holster you choose will hold your weapon securely. The last thing you need is a holster that does not hold your gun or that does not provide safeguards against accidental discharge. There are some newer holsters that have fully adjustable retention screws that will allow you to adjust how tight the holster grips your weapon.
You also want to make sure that you are legally covered if you choose to carry your weapon around in public. You can get more information here to take the proper steps for a concealed license.
No matter how secure your holster is, if it is not comfortable it will be of no use because you will not be able to stand wearing it for a long period of time. For example, if it is rubbing against you every time you wear it you are going to constantly be fighting with it to adjust it. This can lead to not wearing it or to wearing it incorrectly and compromising its safety.
3. Ease of Access
There is no point in carrying a concealed weapon for protection if you can’t access it easily. You want to be able to draw your weapon quickly. Something that can make a difference in how easily you can access your weapon is the angle at which your weapon sits when it is in the holster.
Take the time to try on the holster you are planning on buying and making sure that you can draw your weapon without getting tangled or stuck in the process.
You definitely want to look for something that will last for years and not suddenly break while you are out and about. A holster that is poorly made can slip or stick while you are in the middle of drawing your weapon. Do not buy solely on the price, make sure to invest your money in something solid.
Most people do not run around showing off that they have a gun so, if you too are looking for concealed carry holsters, make sure that the holster fits well under your jacket, shirt, etc. Proper concealment will help you avoid any uncomfortable circumstances where your handgun is accidentally exposed and someone calls law enforcement on you.
