Few things carry as heavy a responsibility as the concealed carry of a firearm. Yet to properly shoulder this burden, the citizen needs four things: proper training, a reliable firearm, proven ammunition and a quality holster. Unfortunately, the carry rig is given only a cursory mention in many discussions.

The holster is likely to have a greater impact than any other piece of equipment on whether or not you have a gun with you in a deadly-force encounter. A good concealment rig will be comfortable, secure the handgun in place and properly hide the pistol from sight. If a holster fails to do these things, you will be less likely to carry the gun regularly, reducing the chances of having it if you need it. In this roundup, there are a number of great options in the categories of inside-the-waistband, outside-the-waistband, pocket, ankle and shoulder holsters. Just like a firearm, different rigs will work better for different people. Scroll through the gallery above to find out what is right for you!
