posted on January 7, 2022

When it comes to firearms, there's been a horde of new shooters to join the mix in the last couple of years. Many of them are thinking about how to carry a concealed firearm for the first time. Still other, more experienced shooters are contemplating a switch from something more traditional, like 3 o'clock OWB carry to appendix. 

In this video, we talk about the main carry positions, including appendix, strong side, IWB, and OWB. We'll also take a look at some holster options that are ideal for each position, including models from CrossBreed, Blackpoint Tactical, and Galco. Finally, we'll show how these carry positions work in the field with the help of the Taurus GX4 TORO
