Why Women Should Carry?

Why Women Should Carry? me

 

Why does a woman need to carry? A lot of women these days are not thinking about protecting their self. They are relying on their significant other or someone else too. Some women say, “oh it’s too heavy to carry a weapon in my purse” or “I can’t wear holsters on me because I wear fitted clothes”. There are many excuses to why not to carry but there is way more reason to why NOT carry?

Coming from a women, that I am, I have been in a few difficult situations where I needed a weapon for protection and in some cases where the weapon saved my life. Several years ago I was in college in our local gym taking some extra PE classes to get in shape. As you know, in the state of NC you can’t carry a weapon on campus, so therefore I could not bring my weapon with me. So I went with plan B, bring my stun gun. FYI, a stun gun is not classified as a weapon, however, a Taser is, big difference. We will discuss this in another topic. So back to the gym, I was in the locker room changing from my swim class and just so happened I was a lone, nobody else in there. FYI again, try to always have a gym buddy or have somebody with you. While I was changing, a tall muscular man walked in the “WOMENS ONLY” locker room and came close to me and just looked at me. It felt like several minutes, however I knew it was probably only a few seconds. I was so scared and my adrenaline was raging. I was thinking of so many different tactics that I could do to protect myself. The tall man was standing between me and the locker door entrance. So, I looked at the locker room door as if someone was coming in and the man looked too. As soon as I knew that he was not watching me I reached for my stun gun real fast and I started to press the shocker not actually at on him, but very close to where you could feel the “heat”. I started to yell and shout, “GET OUT OF HERE”. The tall man ran for his life out of that locker before I could do anything else. After he ran out, I did too, I chased him out of the gym door. After he was out of sight, I went and reported him, I never saw that man again in the gym.

So ladies, it is very important to always have some sort of protection whether it be a weapon, stun gun, Taser, knife or etc. I will discuss in later topics different weapons for protection. Whatever you decide to carry than please be trained at carrying it and using it. Be prepared.

Advantages of Carry in the Pocket “5 A’s”

ad_02

 

Everyone wants A’s on their report card right? Well why not for carrying your weapon too? The 5 A’s can help you decide whether pocket carry is right for you. There are many ways to carrying your weapon in a pocket. Whether you carry in the back pocket, front pocket, jacket pocket or a cargo pocket, it’s all an excellent way to guarantee you have a weapon when you need one. Just remember the 5 A’s when considering carrying in the pocket.

The 5 A’s for Pocket Carry:

  1. Acquainted Routine-Most everyone has pockets and carry things in their pockets. It’s a natural regimen to stick your hands in your pocket, or grab things from your pocket or even rest your hands in your pocket. Your average person would not think of a weapon being in your pocket these days. Due to most people have cell phones that are larger than a small 380 or 9mm weapon. With that being said, there is not much discomfort when carrying a weapon in the pocket because one is already use to carrying large things in their pocket. When one gets into a routine of carrying a weapon in the pocket, one never remembers that there is a weapon in the pocket, it’s too familiar.
  2. Awareness is at ease and concealment is easy-When carrying in the pocket, one of the greatest advantage is that the weapon is not noticeable. The mind is at ease when you don’t have to worry about your weapon showing. A lot, of people stress when carrying a weapon in certain places due to they’re afraid of their weapon showing when they move or sit. This can cause problems if you are in a situation and you need to draw your weapon. When concealing your weapon you need to be at ease and comfortable.
  3. Affordable- The price of a pocket holster is usually the same price as a descent wallet. Keep in mind that a good made pocket holster may not be cheap, but who wants to carry a $300 weapon in a $20 holster.
  4. Attire- To start with your attire dose not usually affect the clothing you wear. One could wear a suit and tie and carry the weapon in the pants pocket or jacket pocket. In my opinion, 80% of pants have pockets and 90% of jackets have pockets. So you have one less thing to worry about when thinking about carrying your weapon.
  5. Access is relaxed- As stated in the acquainted routine, it’s a natural routine to stick your hands in the pocket for a numerous of reasons. So access to your weapon may be more of a natural response to someone else. Which will make it feel more relaxing to one as well. One does not have to take about twisting the weapon a certain way to release the weapon or pressing a button to release the weapon. The weapon is easily accessible to draw, however it may not be the fastest, but it’s one of the less complicated ways.

MTR Custom Leather gives you the option to add double stitching to your Punisher rig (around the holsters only), this option will add stiffness and durability to the holsters (see picture for example). Also, adding an enclosed barrel is another great option for your Punisher rig, this enables dust and debris from entering your barrel. The Punisher rig is a great choice of shoulder rig to aid in emergency situations where you may need to shoot with your non-dominate hand.
