After I broke my dominant hand earlier this year, I began to strongly consider conceal carrying. I wanted to stack the odds in my favor as much as possible if I’m ever in physical danger.
There are a lot to consider before just going out to buy a gun, stick it in a cheap holster and start carrying. There are pros and cons to conceal carrying, and I’m not sure it is for me. So, I’m exploring.
I’m not going to argue on 2nd amendment and who should be allowed to carry. I am only setting boundaries for myself here. I will do the following to help myself make an informed decision:
- Obtain quality training in marksmanship and defensive tactics,
- Research all the legal and personal consequences
- Try this out with proper gear for an extended period of time.
I will cover my exploration in these 3 parts, training, legal/personal consequences consideration, and trying out.
