Daily Defense #7: Carrying a Firearm in Public

Jeff introduces us to "EDC" or every day carry of a firearm, also often called "concealed carry," since most folks don't carry a gun openly in public. We can't predict when and where threats to our safety might arise, so carrying a firearm for self-defense is a way to be prepared while going about our daily lives. If you choose to carry a gun, you probably won't do it EVERY day. There are places (airports, courthouses, government buildings, many workplaces, etc.) where you can't carry a firearm. So you may actually carry closer to 80% of the time. Out of a 24-hour day, how many hours will you be armed? You'll also have to integrate the firearm into your everyday wardrobe. Your work environment is a big factor; working in an office has different limitations than working at home. ALL of this affects your choice of firearm. As a result, there isn't a single EDC strategy that's right for everybody in all situations.
