Let me preface this by saying that there is no right or wrong answer (As long as it’s at least 1).
THIS IS OPINION BASED
This is not so much a blog post, as it is a basic survey.
What I Carry and Why.
I carry a primary IWB (Inside the Waistband) and a pocket rocket.
There are many different benefits to having multiple firearms on you.
An IWB on your hip can give you the benefit of a quick draw for a surprise attack.
A pocket pistol can allow you to already have your hand on the pistol so that you have a tactical advantage.
Think About It
There is also the added benefit of a scenario where an assailant is being hostile, but not yet physical.
It just so happens that, as you are lifting your shirt to draw, the situation de-escalates.
Congratulations, you just brandished a firearm, or worse threatened the assailant with the use of a deadly weapon. The entire situation changed because you started your draw when you didn’t need to.
Well, that is how the lawyers may see it.
You strategically place your hands in your pocket, and have your gun in hand ready to draw, but don’t do it. The situation de-escalates and you resolve the conflict with words not bullets.
I know, only in a perfect world.
I was just showing you the benefits and disadvantages of both forms of carrying.
Enough About Me
What do y’all think?
Is one primary enough?
A primary and a backup in the pocket, perhaps?
