Talking About Camping

Hi there, my name is Jacob Franks. I created this website to discuss camping in tents and recreational vehicles. Since I love camping so much, I actually go off into the wilderness each season. I know how to camp comfortably in both hot and cold conditions. I can share my knowledge of camping gear and accessories you need for your unique excursions. I will also talk about ways to fend off wildlife trying to access your food or draw small creatures close for pictures. I hope you will visit my site on a regular basis to learn more about camping and outdoor recreation. Thanks for visiting.

Don't Make These 2 Mistakes With Your Firearm

Recreation & Sports Blog

Today, many people are partaking in firearms courses to be able to carry a concealed weapon. Whether it be because of their job or simply because they want to feel safe in the world around them, you have every right to carry a weapon with you at all times. However, you want to make sure you go about it the right way. Here are some of the common mistakes people make when carrying a concealed weapon and how you can avoid making them.

Only having the minimum amount of training required.

Depending on which state you live in, you might only need to take a hunter safety course to be eligible to carry a concealed weapon. These courses are all about being safe when hunting in the woods, which is quite different from carrying a weapon on the street with millions of people around the world. While it might teach you the rules of hunting and what you can shoot and where, it isn't going to help you learn how to interact with the world when walking the streets and carrying a gun on your side.

Take a firearms course from a reputable instructor that can give you the proper training you need to succeed. Just because you take a class now, that doesn't mean you shouldn't update your knowledge next year. Refreshing your memory is great. You can constantly learn and grow, while making sure you are safe.

Not getting the right holster for your firearm.

While saving money is nice, it isn't always the best thing to do when it comes to buying a holster for your firearm. You want to make sure you are buying a holster that is finely crafted and durable. Don't expect to get the best quality if you are only going to spend $5 on your new holster. That isn't going to happen.

You should spend some time checking out the different materials and styles to determine which one is best suited for your lifestyle. You need something that is comfortable enough for you to wear on your hip for hours on end. It might take a little trial and error before you find the one that fits just right. Comfort is the key.

While being able to carry a firearm is nice, you want to make sure you are following all of the rules and regulations put in place today and doing things the right way.
