JC provides some great considerations for when it’s not a full-blown SHTF scenario. What he presents below is a good reason for when to use varying types of body armor, and how to wear it.
Last week we talked about whether a long gun was appropriate to carry, and which ones are somewhat concealable. This time we’ll talk about methods I’ve used to conceal a handgun. We’ll also review what heavy duty (rifle plates) body armor and long gun ammo rigs can be concealed, and how to do it. Concealing your gear and weapons in the “In between” time period of bad times could mean the difference between life and death. At a minimum, being seen wearing heavy duty body armor will probably bring unwanted questioning by those in authority, so concealment is the way to go if at all possible.
Level 3A soft body armor. A full size pistol (Beretta M9) in a paddle holster (two mag pouch on off side). The pancake is one of the best external belt holsters for concealing a pistol, especially a full sized one.
