Off-body concealed carry

Not everyone is comfortable carrying a concealed firearm in a holster or on their body. Carrying in your waistband or off your waistband is typically the most effective way to to concealed carry, but there are other concealed carry options. 

Off-body concealed carry means keeping your firearm in an accessible purse or bag, rather than on your direct person. This option takes more practice and thought, however, so the firearms experts at Frontier Justice put together this helpful guide to off-body concealed carry. 

Understand the risks to off-body concealed carry

When carrying off-body, you have to constantly be conscious of your bag. This means you can’t just leave your bag on your desk or unattended, because that could lead to a potentially dangerous situation.

Find a bag you are likely to keep with you

To effectively carry off body, you have to have a bag or purse that you’re comfortable carrying around. It needs to be something that you don’t mind keeping on you at all times. There are many different types of concealed carry purses and bags, so make sure you find one that fits your lifestyle and won’t be too cumbersome to keep on you throughout your day. 

Practice with your bag before committing to off-body concealed carry

It’s not enough to just carry your firearm. You need to be prepared to use it efficiently and effectively. Drawing your firearm while carrying off body is difficult, so it’s important to properly train to draw your firearm from its concealment.
