    I get asked a lot about what methods of concealed carry i think work best. I think there are way too many ways that do work so it is easier for me to discuss methods I do not think work or are not good ideas from one reason or another. This video details all those "concealed carry don'ts."

    A .380 in a wallet holster was the only way I could carry comfortably. I use a slim clip ( as seen on tv ) as my wallet in my front pocket and the TCP in a wallet holster is no more uncomfortable than a regular wallet.

    All right! If you can't respect the opinions of a guy in Dr. Pepper ball cap and Batman T-shirt.......

    Wifey carries at times in a concealing purse, but the #1 rule is the purse is never ever out of reach and most of the time she is in direct control of the purse.

    Very well done video! You and I share a lot of the same views except that I'm guilty of leaving my carry gun in my backpack locked up in te car while at work.

    Your hat or head is not off kilter, your shoulders are. Just answering one of the first questions...but on a more serious not, liked the video, good info.

    He does not like Mexican carry, I'm glad he is smarter than General Patton.

    I will go on record as saying anyone that thinks mexican carry is a safe a valid method of carry is a moron. No matter how many stars they have on their shoulder.

    Terrific job!
    Easygoing approach but lots of info - that I happen to agree with, too.

    I think he could have emphasized the dangers of shoulder holsters more. So many people cover their own arm or elbow without giving it a second thought, every time they draw and holster their weapon.

    I have one vertical shoulder holster I use with a suppressed .22 that I carry on the property to deal with varmints. Boy am I ever careful about muzzle discipline with that combination.

    Strangely enough, I read the title of the thread as "Concealed Carry Donuts"
