A lot of people have guns to keep them and their family safe. Many people who don’t live in open carry states, and even some who do, choose to get their concealed carry permits. Below are three tips that you can use when you have a concealed carry permit and are using it.
- Don’t Advertise
It’s okay to tell your family and very close friends that you have a conceal carry permit, but it’s not a good idea to let other people know. Don’t tell anyone where you carry your gun, either. If the wrong person gets that information, it can end very badly.
- Don’t Act as If You’re Carrying
A lot of times, this is a problem that new carriers have. They often act somewhat nervous when they’re in public. Keep in mind that if you aren’t touching/playing with the gun and it’s properly concealed, nobody is going to know that you are carrying it.
- Be Safe
Just like you should with any firearm, make sure that you are practicing safe handling of your firearm. Make sure to keep it safe and locked if you have children in the house. Always treat your gun with respect and it will be a tool that can help keep you and your family safe.
Keep in mind that a concealed carry permit is a big responsibility and that you want to make sure that you and everyone around you is safe. That means showing your firearm the respect it deserves and remembering that it doesn’t give you immortality.
