We talk a lot—a lot—about concealed carry and self-defensive handgun tactics here at Gun Digest. Part of that discussion always involves holsters, but you hardly ever see a full body of work dedicated to just that aspect. That’s why we’re thankful that Robert K. Campbell, one of our regular and most poplar contributors to the Gun Digest annual, has entire book on just that subject.
Holsters for Combat and Concealed Carry emphasizes one of the most obvious, and most overlooked, aspects of personal protection. As so many of our book authors point out, lots of us out there carrying a handgun in a concealed manner will stick our gun in any old thing and call it a day—or not. Truth is, the wrong holster chosen for how you live, drive, walk, and go about the day to day business of being you will likely have you leaving behind your gun on the bedroom dresser. Why? Because your holster doesn’t fit the gun well, it’s not comfortable, it doesn’t enable a solid draw, it’s too hard to un-conceal to get a grip on the gun it holds, it’s ugly, it’s too pretty, it’s … the list goes on in on. Author Campbell remedies all these maladies and more, plus he gives you the tactics you need to defend your life with a gun when you just might need to the most.
A one-of-a-kind reference work, Holsters for Combat and Concealed Carry should be on every concealed carry practitioner’s reading list, whether you just bought your first snubby or you’ve been packin’ for years. Simply put, this book might just save your life.
