Heavy Duty Belts
Women who conceal carry are definitely in the minority, especially those who practice on the person concealed carry, rather than in a purse or bag. First, there just aren’t a lot of women out there who shoot. Of those, there aren’t a lot of who want to carry concealed. While this trend is growing, it is still a small number compared to the number of men who carry concealed.

BEST CONCEALED CARRY POSITIONS FOR WOMEN
Concealed carry positions are numbered according to a clock. Twelve o’clock is your belly button, 3 o’clock is your hip, and 5 o’clock is where your kidneys are located. Let’s take a look below at the best places for women and what they need to consider for concealed carry on Klik belts.
12 O’CLOCK POSITION
The 12 o’clock position is at your belly button. Your concealed carry weapon should align with your zipper. This is great for both IWB (inside the waistband) or OWB (outside the waistband) carry for your Klick gun. Many women prefer this because when you sit down, the barrel of the gun does not jab you. This position works great for petite and skinny women. However, if you are wearing low-rise pants, you’ll have to cover your firearm with your shirt or jacket instead.
2 O’CLOCK POSITION
The 2 o’clock position (also known as the appendix position) is very popular with women. The firearm is easily accessible and easy to hide. You may have to adjust this based on how it feels while you sit because the barrel may hit the top of your thigh. Bending forward may jab you, so squatting may be the better option. Also, if you love to hug people, this concealed carry position may not be the best for you because the gun can jab the other person, especially if the hug is tight.
3 O’CLOCK POSITION
For most people, the 3 o’clock position for carrying your gun, whether concealed or open carry, is the preferred place. Most law enforcement officials carry their gun in this position because it sits right on the hip. The gun is out of the way of your legs and is easy to draw when needed. Your TSA-Approved Klik Belt will be perfect for this type of carry. This carry accommodates both IWB and OWB holsters and carries. The main problem that women have when carrying concealed with the 3 o’clock position is that your gun can make your hips look uneven, which then draws attention to your firearm. However, you are fully free to move and bend over with your firearm in this position.
4:30 O'CLOCK POSITION
Another popular position is the 4:30 concealed carry position, which is just behind your back. This is a great way for women to carry your firearm using your Klick Belt. It’s out of the way, extremely comfortable, and you are able to move freely. You can hide your firearm easily this way, except when you bend forward, which can leave a firearm imprint. The key to this position since your firearm is behind you is to make sure you have the mobility to easily grab your gun and to practice drawing it. However, this carry is great for women who like to wear tighter clothing.
6 O’CLOCK CARRY POSITION
Also known as the Small of Back (SOB) position, this position is not convenient for most women. While it does a great job at fitting in the small of your back, it can be hard to reach for most women. It also can be uncomfortable if you sit a lot, and if you are grabbed from behind by a perpetrator, it will be almost impossible to reach your gun in this position. Belt-wise, Klik Belts do an amazing job at holding your gun in position. Again, bending forward will reveal your gun so squatting will be the answer to avoid this.
THE MISSION OF KLIK BELTS FOR WOMEN
Let’s face it, carrying a concealed weapon can be a burden, especially for women who tend to wear tight clothes. However, if you want to protect yourself and your family from threats, this is the best way to do so. You should always carry your concealed weapon with a holster in order to protect the gun and protect yourself from the gun accidentally firing. You should conceal carry consistently; otherwise, you will leave yourself vulnerable in case something happens. One final tip for women who conceal carry: you need to have your gun chambered. Otherwise, when you pull your gun out to fire, either you have to take the time with your adrenaline pumping to chamber the gun or the perpetrator will already be firing at you. Shooting to kill can be a matter of seconds.
