5 Tips for Enhanced Conceal Carry Comfort

If conceal carry is uncomfortable for you physically, there are things you can do to change that.

The last thing you want is for your full-size pistol to be stabbing your stomach. That makes you less likely to want to carry each day, jeopardizing your safety for the sake of comfort if you decide to leave your weapon at home. Here are five tips for enhanced conceal carry comfort. Some of these you may have to combine to find your ultimate conceal carry style.

Tip #1: Use the MyCloud

This is a new product from Galco, which makes a variety of truly amazing holsters that are actually very comfortable to wear. Their new MyCloud is made of their “comfort cloth technology” that some of their holsters are lined with. This new 6 x 4 inch contoured pad is meant to attach to any holster. It also helps to wick moisture away from your body, so your holster will feel drier against your skin. It’s a great way to adapt pretty much any holster you have so that it’s not digging into your stomach when you belt carry.

Tip #2: Change Up Your Placement

If you have been carrying in an uncomfortable spot, you should consider changing it up. The most common places are on the belt, with either the hip or appendix carry. When you are stuck carrying in one place, you may be surprised at how comfortable the other slightly different location can be. Or how about trying out an ankle carry? If you can tolerate using a smaller gun for everyday carry, this might be an ideal location.

Tip #3: Buy a Better Holster

If your holster was $10 or $15 bucks, that might be the issue. The material is cheap, isn’t going to wick moisture away, and might have some seams and edges that are poking into you. When you splurge on a great holster that costs a little bit more money, like in the $100 to $150 range, the quality is going to go way up. Try buying one in person so you can try it on in the store.

Tip #4: Have a Real Gun Belt

This is an issue if you are just using your regular belt as your gun belt. It’s not meant to support the weight of the weapon and the holster. It might make the gun hit you in the wrong spot since it’s sagging down. Outfit yourself with a true gun belt, and you will probably be more comfortable.

Tip #5: Wear a Undershirt

If your gun is flesh up against your skin, and the grip is rubbing at you, then it’s time to wear an undershirt tucked in for protection. You’ll be amazed at how much less chaffing you’ll have when there is that buffer of undershirt shielding your skin.
