Don’t let your cousin’s wedding or your daughter’s school benefit stop you from carrying a weapon with you. In fact, dressing up nice is easier than you might think with the help of ccw dress clothes and a few quick tips that will ensure that you are ready for anything. Don’t let a form-fitting suit or slim dress stop you from being prepared!
Pick the Right Gun
The first step to carrying your weapon is easy: decide which gun to bring! Take note that magazine shape and size can drastically affect how easy it is to hide your gun under a nice shirt or dress. It’s recommended that a gun compatible with a single stack magazine rather than a double stack is used in these situations because of bulk and size. You’ll have to balance caliber, access, and weight to find exactly what will work for the situation.
Pick the Right Holster
For men, the best and most stylish option for carrying is easily the shoulder holster. With this, you’ll easily be able to carry 2 weapons and some extra ammunition under your suit jacket fairly easily. You can even have your suit tailored specifically to fit around the holster for a more secure, concealed fit.
For women, depending on the type of dress you are wearing you may be able to get away with an ankle holster. An even better but less comfortable option is the thigh holster. This will allow you to easily conceal your gun and some extra ammo just above the knee for easy access.
In any situation, pocket carrying or loosely tucking your weapon into your belt is not recommended. Aside from being an uncomfortable and ineffective way of handling your weapon, using this method could cause the gun to easily fall out, which is a breach of safety. Always remember that no matter the style, safety is always the first priority!
