It was incredible to talk with them about what they were struggling with, and I worked with their prospective coaches to figure out the details.

Three Reasons To Choose A Shoulder Holster When You're Overweight

Much of being able to successfully carry a concealed weapon depends on the type of holster you choose. You're looking for a balance between a holster that isn't evident to others, but that allows you to reach it quickly when you need to draw your firearm. If you're overweight and wish to carry a concealed firearm after completing a concealed carry class, you'll need to select the right holster that will suit your body type. Not every holster is ideal for those with a larger stature, but you may find that a shoulder holster is a smart choice. Here are some reasons why.

It Doesn't Press Hard Against Your Body

While many people who carry a concealed firearm wear a holster inside the waist of their pants, this isn't always ideal if you're overweight. You may already feel a high degree of snugness and pressure in this area, and adding something between your body and your pants only makes it more uncomfortable to move. Conversely, a handgun in a shoulder holster will sit comfortably against your skin but won't dig into you, because you aren't wearing a belt on the outside of the holster.

It's Ideal For Baggier Clothing

One of the drawbacks to a shoulder holster for those who are smaller in stature is that the holster and even the outline of the firearm may be visible. This is especially the case for smaller people who wear tight clothing. While not every overweight person wears baggy clothing, this is often the case. When you're bigger, you seldom want attire that hugs your body. This means that if you're wearing a loose shirt, such as a button-up shirt that you wear un-tucked, you can easily fit a shoulder holster and your handgun under the garment without experiencing any discomfort.

You Can Grab The Gun Easily

The holster that you choose isn't only about how comfortable it feels. You also need to select a holster that will allow you to draw your firearm in a quick manner should you feel threatened. Some holsters are less than ideal for this purpose, especially if your weight limits your ability to be nimble. For example, while there are plenty of advantages to an ankle holster, you might not be able to reach down to your ankle quickly if you're heavy. However, you should be able to easily slip your hand under your shirt to draw your weapon from its shoulder holster.
