As important as it is to carry a gun for personal safety, it’s equally as important to put in the time to train and practice. While most gun owners prefer to roll to the range in either tactical gear or rags lying around the house, there’s no reason gun owners can’t look snazzy while running concealed carry drills.

Cris Crannigan donned some fun duds from Brooklyn Cloth Mfg. Co, Broken Threads and Tailored Recreation Premium. In addition to some brightly colored attire, Crannigan carried a Smith & Wesson Shield 9mm model in a Hidden Hybrid Single Clip Strong Side/AIWB holster then later switched over to the larger, midsize Gen. 4 Glock 19 in a Bravo Concealment Torsion 3.0 Holster. Both feature a hardshell design with an inside-the-waistband approach for ultimate concealment.

Running through the drawing drills, Crannigan demonstrated draws from t-shirts as well as a looser overshirt, proving that you don’t have to be tacticool to concealed carry. Scroll through the pics to check out Crannigan in action alongside the fun, summery looks.
