There are a lot of misconceptions about concealed carry rules, coming from not only outside of the gun community but also from within it. Let’s debunk three common myths about concealed carry—evaluate your concealed carry methods and whether these myths have formed your opinions on how to carry.

You Can Switch the Guns You Carry

When you’re in a life-threatening situation, your flight, fight, or freeze tendencies will naturally take over. This, partnered with adrenaline, can make it very difficult for you to grab your gun during a crisis. This is why unholstering, gripping, and shooting your gun should be habits. They should feel like second nature so that your when your body is filled with adrenaline, you’ll still able to shoot quickly and accurately.

This is why it’s wise to carry the same gun. You won’t have to mentally think about what gun you’re carrying; it will be the same one with which you’ve built habits and the one you’re used to.

You Must Carry With an Empty Chamber

There’s a common myth that it’s safer to carry your firearm with an empty chamber. This may be one of the most popular of the three common myths about concealed carry to debunk. If you carry with an empty chamber, you must take the time to rack the slide and chamber a round before using your firearm. In the event of a crisis, those extra seconds could mean the difference between life and death. A firearm’s safety lock is an important feature that allows a round to stay in the chamber at all times.

If you’re still concerned, sign up for local firearm and concealed carry classes. They’ll provide you with peace of mind for carrying a round in your chamber.

You Have To Carry in a Holster

The third myth is that your firearm is best carried in a holster. Although there are pros and cons to each way you carry, many other options are just as effective as a holster. A CCW backpack is one of these possibilities. Its versatility and flexibility will allow you to more easily perform activities without the need to clean your gun of any perspiration resulting from those activities. In the case that you would like to leave your firearm in your vehicle, this is another safe way to conceal it from sight.
