Especially those situations where you know there’s a good chance you could find yourself compromised, like say for instance, if you happen to be entering a dangerous, messed-up part of town.

People can’t go two seconds without looking at their phone. There are many documented cases of people walking into traffic, walking off a cliff, and other stupid yet lethal incidents while ogling their iPhone screens!

I know it’s hard – but just do it. You’ll thank me later.

Plus of course, when you have a phone in hand, you can’t also be expected to easily access your concealed carry. Bottom line… stay alert to your surroundings. A simple rule to live by that could save your life.

Also, make sure access to your firearm is unimpeded — unzip your coat, release the snap closure on your holster, and make sure your undershirt or shirt tails don’t get in the way of unholstering your gun.
