(TacticalNews.com) – The world is a dangerous place, and you need to prepare for potential trouble. Random acts of violence, or planned ones, happen all too often. The risk of being attacked isn’t limited to any particular location or situation either. It can even happen while you are sunning yourself at the beach or lounging around at a swimming pool
It’s up to you to decide whether to carry a firearm to the beach or a public pool. There are a few points to consider if you answer in the affirmative. As always, safety is number one. Swimming pools and beaches require special attention due to the fact children frequent those locations. However you decide to carry your weapon, make sure it’s not readily accessible to anyone who might stumble upon it.
For that reason, carrying it on your person might be your best option. A belly band used in combination with a baggy swimsuit or tee-shirt works great. Pocket carry is also an option since a lot of swimwear comes with pockets deep enough to hold a firearm.
Some experts might advise you to use a ziplock or some other waterproof container to carry your weapon while swimming. However, that’s not a good idea since the bag could leak. You could even lose your weapon while swimming turning a fun outing into an expensive life-lesson.
It’s probably best to leave your weapon in the care of another responsible adult while you’re in the water. If you can’t leave it with another person, make sure you place a proper trigger guard on your gun and try to stash it somewhere safe, like in the trunk of your car.
There are plenty of concealed carry options for everyone. Be sure to check out options for females and the handicapped. You should also make sure that concealed carry is right for you. This article covers the pros and cons of concealed and open carry to help you find out which is best for you.
