Although Linda Hasselberg has been around guns her entire life, she just recently got her concealed carry license. The small business owner in Texas Hills, Texas, said she wants to be prepared for a potentially dangerous situation. “I carry because I want to make sure that everyone around me is safe,” she said.
Hasselberg’s carry gun is a Kimber Micro 9, which she prefers because it’s easy to rack the slide. That aspect was important to her due to an issue in her hands. “I not only wanted to make sure my gun was easy to shoot but that as I got older, I would still be able to carry and use it,” she said.
When Hasselberg carries, she said she doesn’t want people to know, especially when they’re visiting her store. So, for now, she’s using a Lirisy conceal carry belt pouch. “Nobody knows my gun is in it and no one is going to ever be able to get it off of me,” she said. “A big plus, I also have a place to carry my cell phone. It’s easy to get into and my gun is always ready to grab.”
