Video: Massad Ayoob on Handgun Concealment Considerations


Buy a handgun and a holster, then it's off to the races. If only concealed carry were so simple.

From proper training to the right equipment, the discipline has a multitude of aspects that must be considered and carefully weighed before responsibly carrying. One facet that should be thoroughly examined is exactly what type of gun will be carried and how it will remain concealed.

The above Panteao Production video featuring personal-defense guru Massad Ayoob covers the expansive topic of handgun concealment very well, given its brevity. And what Ayoob talks about basically boils down to to one thing – potential tradeoffs.

A sub-compact pistol might disappear under nearly any wardrobe you wear, but can you shoot it well? At the range you knock the X out of targets with a full-sized service pistol, but can you practically conceal that beast everyday?

These are a few questions anyone thinking about concealed carrying should ponder. Mas gives some food for thought well worth chewing on before slapping hard-earned money down on equipment that might prove nonviable soon after it's utilized.
