Your first priority is moving the clothing that is concealing your weapon.

IWB Concealed Carry Holster Draw

Drawing from an IWB can be entirely different than drawing from your duty holster. Points of consideration include: placement of the weapon on the body, retention systems of the holster, and the layers of clothing that might be covering the firearm. With these variables in mind, let's look at how to draw from an IWB, regardless of where it is located on your belt line. For more, read Drawing from Non-Duty Holsters.

Beretta says its new Pico is the thinnest .380 auto made. The snag-free Pico's slide and frame are a true 18 millimeters at their widest point. The grip frame, sights, and caliber (go from a .380 to a .32ACP by changing the barrel) are all simple to modify. The chassis can accommodate a Lasermax Laser frame and be customized with a selection of colored frames.

SHOT Show 2014

We sent Police Magazine contributing editor Mark W. Clark to the SHOT Show in January and he came back with these shots of guns and gear from Media Day at the Range and from the show floor.

Up-and-coming AR maker Windham Weaponry announced a new .308 rifle in late fall. At 7.5 pounds, the Windham .308 SRC is one of the lightest 7.62mm AR variants on the market.

Retail price is $1,431, and the rifle is covered by Windham's lifetime transferable warranty.

Firearms 2014

Each year the latest firearms, law enforcement gear, and shooting sports products make their debut at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show. This year's show is scheduled for the middle of this month at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. And from what the POLICE editorial staff is hearing from some of the top law enforcement product manufacturers, the guns making their debut (or U.S. debut) at SHOT 2014 will continue some of the trends that we have seen in the last five or so years.

Since the expansion of concealed carry laws nationwide, some of the biggest sellers in the firearms market have been compact or even pocket-sized pistols. The word from major pistol makers is that this trend will continue and probably gain steam.

The other major trend in the firearms market is the AR-variant rifle. These semi-automatic versions of military-style rifles called "modern sporting rifles" in the industry continue to be extremely popular as target and hunting rifles with gun enthusiasts and as patrol rifles for law enforcement. Both new and improved versions of ARs will be on display at this year's SHOT.
