We live in an amazing modern world of turn-key solutions. Especially in America, we have an astounding variety of tools, technology and instant access to information at our finger tips for solving our day-to-day problems. While many of these assets are convenient, they can make us mentally lazy if we let them. We could start to think that being in possession of the "right" or "best" equipment will solve our problems for us. To help shake off this mass media languor, here are a few tips to consider when sharpening up your concealed-carry mindset:

Concealed Firearms Do Not Make Us "Safe"
When was the last time you heard someone say, "I am so glad to have my driver's license, a good set of seat belts and air bags in my car. Now I can drive down that iced-over canyon road as fast as I want." Most of us would agree that driving with this kind of attitude is both impractical and dangerous. Instead, when we think of automotive safety, we look to defensive driving techniques to keep us safe. It’s understood that devices like seat belts and air bags are the last line of defense, not the first. Drivers around the world get to their destinations safely each day, not because of the equipment in their car, but because of their good driving habits. READ THE REST AT THE LINK ABOVE.

That was pretty much the most ugly OWB holster I have ever seen. Good info in the article though.

I don't quite understand that style of holster. Solution looking for a problem kinda thing.
Plus I think he's doing it wrong. Pretty sure the belt goes behind the holster.

Leave it to the NRA to screw up a picture like that. Rolleyes

They are so against open carry that they forget how to use an IWB holster.
My guidance counselor said I wouldn't amount to anything... Lucky guess! Dodgy
