Experimenting With Different Carry Options

I am carrying daily, again. I typically do not leave the house without my firearm on me. I started to get sloppy and wasn’t carrying while at work from time to time. A recent event got me thinking about my job and some of the situations I end up in while on the clock and I decided to get back into my usual daily carry habit.

This week I have been rocking a Glock 26 that I borrowed from a good buddy (thanks Bob). Monday and Wednesday I carried it in my Concealment Solutions Sidewinder. It is my go-to daily carry holster for my 19 and the 26 worked great in it. On Tuesday I tried something a little different and popped on my Raven Concealment Vanguard 2 and tried a little appendix carry.

I am a huge fan of owb carry. For me it just works best. I can say that I enjoyed carrying more on Monday and Wednesday than I did on Tuesday. There is just something about me that I cannot do iwb or appendix. It might be my body type or that I am in and out of a vehicle a lot. I am not giving up completely I want to try a couple other holsters before that happens.

I will be finishing the week off with carrying the wife’s Smith & Wesson Shield in a NUoSU Concealment holster. Since the wife is gone for the week and it is officially MAN-morial weekend I will do as I please. (Just don’t tell her)

I am trying to get a feel in the difference between carrying the double stack vs. the single. I am a dedicated Glock shooter and I love the 26 but the Shield is so thin it makes it hard to say no to it. If the 26 ends up coming out on top there is a good possibility that an OD green 26 will be in my future. If the Shield wins… well I guess I saved myself 500 bucks.

I will update at the end of the week and let you know my decision. Until then check out the Facebook page because I will be putting up pictures of random MAN-morial week stuff especially over the weekend. I will be attending another Vickers Shooting Methods 2 class on Saturday and I hope to have a post explaining how I am prepping in the next day or two so stay tuned for that.

Keep Calm and Carry Often,
