Welcome to Everyday Carry Concealed
My name is Mike and my goal is to provide you with all types of information for your everyday carry and concealed carry needs.
I am a concealed permit holder (for over a decade), a lifetime NRA member, a certified instructor, and a firearm enthusiast.Many of my friends and family are former or active duty military, and I have consulted with them on the topics I cover in this blog over the years.
If there's a topic you want covered, or a question to ask, please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for taking the time to review the material on this site.
