Retired accountant and longtime firearms instructor Judd Earley said he’ll carry both full and subcompact pistols, but to stay comfortable under the hot Texas sun, he’ll use an assortment of holsters. “As a professional (accountant) for 32 years, I carried every day and my clients never knew I had a gun,” Earley said. He recommends that others do the same to stay comfortable no matter what they wear.

“Even though we have concealed carry and open carry in Texas, I never open carry,” he said. “When it’s too hot to wear a vest to help conceal my Glock 17, I wear a Glock 43 in what is called a Cell Pal holster.”

Originally designed to hold a flip phone, the Cell Pal portion is an actual cell phone case that clips to a belt and the gun inserts into an actual holster that hangs below the waistband inside the pants. “The gun rests comfortably on the top of your thigh and the muzzle never points into the top of your leg or into your groin,” Earley said about the design.

Earley is a License to Carry (LTC) Instructor, NRA Instructor, a Texas Commission of Law Enforcement Instructor and a CCL holder. He and his wife Sheila have been teaching LTC classes in Texas since 2000.
