Safety Equipment to Help Conceal & Carry Your Gun Safely, Carrollton, Kentucky

Are you preparing to carry a concealed firearm for the first time? Learn everything you need to know about the safe handling of guns before placing the weapon on your person. Gun safety is something the experts at Glauber’s Sports cannot stress enough, as taking the right steps protects both you and those around you. Review what the team at this Carrollton, KY, gun shop says about concealing and carrying safely to ensure optimal handling and firearm enjoyment.

Consider the following safety equipment whenever you wear or travel with your gun:

  • Holster: Purchase a high-quality holster that keeps your gun in place. The right holster not only feels comfortable and allows for instant firearm access, but it also guards the trigger. This prevents unnecessary trigger manipulation that puts you and others at risk.

  • Clothing: Wear clothing that makes concealing your weapon simple and comfortable. Getting used to wearing a piece takes time, so the more manageable your outerwear is, the easier it will be to carry your weapon comfortably.

  • gunsEye & Ear Protection: Procure quality eye and ear protection before setting foot on a firing range or enjoying a hunting excursion with friends. Never shoot your gun without protecting these vital organs. Debris can easily hit you in the face, while the noise emanating from the firearm can cause hearing damage.

  • Storage: Store your gun safely when traveling, as a conceal and carry permit allows you to keep your firearm in your vehicle. Ensure it is not susceptible to moisture or heat, and consider keeping it discharged. If you want to carry your gun loaded, keep the muzzle pointed away from you and your passengers at all times.

Take time to learn about carrying your concealed weapon safely. Always treat the gun as if it is loaded, know your intended target, and point the weapon at your mark only. Never alter your gun in any way, especially before wearing it or taking it with you on a trip.

This Carrollton gun shop will happily help you select the right firearm for your needs and provide you with every recommended accessory. For more on guns, hunting accessories, ammunition, and other products available through Glauber’s Sports, call (800) 557­-3380, like the company’s Facebook page, or visit the website.
