Honestly, you needn’t get a trigger job on your pistol or break out your wood burning kit to stipple its grips to upgrade your carry rig. There are plenty of down-to-earth, sober options that will make you a more efficient armed citizen and the whole process a load easier. To boot, most of them fall within any shooter’s price range and will end up being money well spent. With that in mind, here are 4 Must-Have Concealed Carry Upgrades that are certain to enhance going armed.
Are you still using that strap you got at a department store’s summer sale to tote your gun? No wonder your rig is so danged uncomfortable. Your average everyday belt just doesn’t cut it when it comes to concealed carry, though there are plenty of folks who try to jam that square peg into a round hole. This overlooked piece of equipment ties your whole carry system together, makes sure your handgun is where it needs to be on the draw and makes carry just a whole heck of a lot easier. Nice thing is, there are plenty of concealed carry belts out there that won’t draw attention and provide the rigidity required to support a handgun. Galco, one of the oldest holster makers around, knows gun leather and has a good selection of leather belts, as does Crossbreed (pictured above). If you're looking for something nylon, BLACKHAWK! and Ares both are excellent places to start.
