One of the most common questions we get here at Fun Guns is “What is the best firearm for concealed carry?”. With more and more people choosing to arm themselves, this question comes up daily in just about every gun shop. Today, we are going to look at what concealed carry is, what factors influence the best option for you, and where you should conceal a firearm on your body.
What Is Concealed Carry?
Concealed carry refers to the practice of carrying a firearm in public in a concealed manner. This usually refers to a handgun located along the hip under your shirt or other locations on the body where the firearms can be covered. The objective of concealed carry is to hide the weapon from surrounding people while still being able to quickly and safely access it in the event of an emergency. Concealed carry is the exact opposite of open carry, the practice of wearing your firearm outside of your shirt or other clothing where everyone can see it.
Do I Need A License To Conceal Carry?
In most states, you will need a License To Carry, or LTC, in order to carry a handgun concealed or openly. In order to find out if you will need an LTC in your state, you will need to get familiar with your state’s laws. Since laws change quite often, you will need to try to stay current on any laws that change regarding concealed carry. For example, as of September 1, 2021, Texans will not be required to have an LTC for concealed carry.
What Is The Best Firearm For Concealed Carry?
When it comes to choosing the best firearm for concealed carry, there are many options to choose from.
