Invest in a Good Belt for Concealed Carry

downloadThe most common factor for people having issues with carrying is that they usually do not have a good belt. The belt is the most central and vital to any carry array. I’m surprised by the lack of information and discussion about this central piece. There is a very distinct type of belt for carrying.

Look for belts that have durable material and are thick and wide. Avoid belts that feel flimsy or can be bent across their width. Problems with printing, holster ride, and chaffing (to name a few) stem from an improper belt that cannot support the weight of a firearm.

Regal Cinemas Now Searching All Bags & Purses Of Moviegoers for Firearms

Regal Cinemas has been on the naughty list for some time now & they’re digging themselves an even deeper hole in the firearms community with their latest announcement regarding security.

If you go to a Regal Cinema, you will be greeted with a new sign at the ticket counter:

“For the safety and comfort of all our guests: Backpacks and bags of any kind are subject to inspection prior to entry to this facility.”

This new policy is said to be the reaction to the recent theater shootings, one in Lafayette, Louisiana and another outside Nashville, Tennessee.

The company’s Facebook page is seeing it’s share of backlash, with many comments in favor of patrons carrying concealed firearms.

“Just returned 2 movie tickets because ticket collector wanted to check my bag for a gun… Didn’t ask to frisk my husband who was also carrying so i guess your policy isn’t flawless”, wrote one woman.

Regal wrote on it’s website, “We acknowledge that this procedure can cause some inconvenience and that it is not without flaws, but hope these are minor in comparison to increased safety.”

The lesson that can be taken away from this policy change, especially for women, is to find ways to conceal your firearm on your person.

The Point: it’s not going to do any good to stop mass shooters, but it will do a great job with hindering the law-abiding from protecting themselves.

A question for Regal Cinemas; if we can’t carry into your theaters, who do you have on staff that will guarantee our safety?
