cuffdblmagFor people in professions that require they carry a concealed weapon, safety is priority number one.  The professionals in certain law enforcement or private security organizations have duties that necessitate they carry a firearm in a discrete manner.  Take members of the Secret Service for example.  Typically when you think of the Secret Service, you envision a stoic person in a suite with sunglasses and an ear piece for communication, running along side a Presidential motorcade.  What you don’t see are the dozens of Secret Service agents that are embedded in the crowds of Presidential events.  The agents are plane clothed  and armed with a concealed weapon(s).  Their presence is advantageous because of their ability to blend in with the crowds of people at the event.  The agents can interact with crowds and possibly can gain helpful insights into possible forthcoming events.  They are also poised in position should someone in the crowd make any hostile advances or gestures to the President.  Since they blend in with the crowd it adds a level of complexity for would be criminals to be able to tell who is who in a crowd.  If a criminal can’t tell who around them is an agent they can’t make counter actions or contingency plans accordingly.  One of the key parts of blending in requires an agent’s weapon to be concealed and not easily detectable.  To conceal a weapon, agents, law enforcement officers and private security personnel, rely on low profile holsters to stow their firearms.  They depend on their holsters to not only be discrete but to house their weapon safely.  A gun holster has to be comfortable under clothing, easily accessible but secure in the event of the users possible physical actions like running or tackling an attacker.  This Kansas City blog caught up with one of the country’s premier holster manufacturers to discuss his business to business connection with a wholesale cotton muslin bag company.
