From the Author
Congratulations. You've completed your concealed weapons class and have your permit. Now you're ready to go to the local gun shop and pick out that one perfect pistol for self-defense. So far, so good.
However, if you're like most folks, you didn't think much about how you'll actually carry the thing around. This can lead to an uncomfortable exchange with the bespectacled gun-counter guy. If your experience is anything like mine, he'll look down his nose at you while a little drop of white spittle forms at the corner of his mouth. You'll ask which holster he recommends. And he'll sneer.
Instead, he'll point and make a strange grunting noise, which will seem to direct you to the holster section. Puzzled, you'll wander over and stare at a wall of holsters. They'll stare back. Now what? I hope this guide helps with the decision.
