How to get comfortable with your concealed carry gun and holster. Technique tips, holster comfort mods, and carry position advice for ALL body types, including how to sit with an appendix carry (AIWB) holster. This is not just for PHLster holsters and not just for appendix carry – you can make any brand of IWB (inside the waistband) holster more comfortable by learning these skills.
If you’ve ever bought a holster everyone swore was the “most comfortable CCW holster ever” – only to put it on and hate it, these tips will help. All holsters need to be adjusted and customized to fit your body, and this will teach you how. Wedges, wings, and concealment mechanics don’t just make your gun conceal well – they also make it more comfortable to wear. See the links below for more detailed concealment resources.
Additionally, knowing how to position the gun on your body is critical. Many common concealed carry comfort problems come from having the gun in the wrong carry position for your body type. If you have problems with your gun poking, jabbing, or rubbing you, especially when you sit or bend over, learning your correct carry position will help. You can also learn how to customize your CCW setup for exercise, running, and other high-movement activities.
