With this most recent Arctic Blast of frigid cold (at least by Georgia standards) I find myself facing new challenges. How do you conceal carry in winter? A heavy coat can obstruct a draw from the waistline and carrying in the coat pocket is great until you walk inside a warm building and need to take the coat off. I’m almost always cold and thus bundled up. All that bundling makes it quite difficult to access my carry gun at a leisurely pace, let alone in a hurry. As so many of us do today, I turned to the internet for answers. I discovered a well-informed and well-written article that addresses these issues and many others that I had not even thought of. While I found many other articles that addressed some of the issues, I found none addressed the winter carrying challenge as thoroughly and honestly as the US Concealed Carry article by John Perez. If your daily routine includes putting on a warm coat, I highly recommend you read his article.

Stay safe and think warm thoughts.

    I use a CC fanny pack to carry when I’m not able or willing to carry openly. Since it is usually dry here, even when extremely cold, I seldom wear a really heavy coat, and seldom have that zipped or buttoned up completely anyway. We must each find the method that will work best for us, of course. My usual solution is simply to stay home in such weather. 🙂
