#1. The type of clothing you wear
Is always a vital part of your concealed carry task. You need to make sure the clothes you are wearing are compatible with your purpose of wearing them. A good jacket that has large easy to remove item designs to their pockets is a must.
You do not want to get your hand or gun stuck on the pocket edge. Also, having it a bit oversized will conceal a gun if you are carrying it inside or on your body. Sweaters need a large pocket as well. You will have to give up that pocketless style if you want to carry a gun.
Pants are okay but if they are going to be tight fitting you are going to have trouble removing your gun when you need it most. Make sure the clothes you buy work with concealed carry.
#2. The type of purse you carry

- Measurements- the purse should measure about 11 by 9 by 3 inches over all. The gun pocket should measure a minimum of 8 by 7 inches
- Practical use- the gun and gun pocket should be easily accessed with nothing in your hand’s way
