Concealed-Carry Options for Women: Pros vs. Cons

Learn how to simplify your concealed-carry choices in this latest video from Smith & Wesson's GUNSMARTS series.

posted on August 3, 2021

Smith & Wesson's Julie Golob may have been carrying concealed (not to mention winning shooting competitions) for years, but she does remember what it was like trying to figure out how to carry a concealed gun comfortably. Women who choose to carry a firearm for personal defense have some choices to make about how to do that ... and every choice you'll make has both pros and cons.

In this video from S&W's GUNSMARTS series, Golob takes the gun-industry jargon ("on-body carry" and "off-body carry") and boils it down to its component parts. Is it better for a beginner to carry a concealed gun in a purse or backpack, or does it make more sense to wear the gun directly on the body? The answers are different for everyone, but you won't know what your answer is until you ask the right questions. Watch this video for some very simple tips that will lead you to the right concealed-carry solution for you!
