...a right-front pocket or the appendix area of the waist-band, because over 80% of armed suspects carry their guns in this location.

When observing people that may be carrying a concealed weapon, there are certain things to look for, explains the Absolute Rights newsletter. Some Absolute Rights examples of behavior to observe are, when a person walks they only swing one arm, their coat is left open in cold weather, a shirt is buttoned only at the top and the tail is hanging loose over the waistband, and a person that may be carrying a concealed weapon looks at another person then looks down toward their hip, then avoids eye contact.

Some of these traits are now taught to the U.S. Secret Service agents for crowd assessment during presidential and dignitary protection assignments, explains the Absolute Rights newsletter. Most people are right-handed and when they greet other people they use their right hands, explains the Absolute Rights newsletter, like when some questionable looking people are hanging around and someone walks up to greet them using their left hand it could signal the presence of a weapon.

People who hide an illegal gun in their pocket tend to hold on to it to prevent its outline showing through the clothing, reveals the Absolute Rights newsletter, and someone with a gun in his waistband tends to keep a hand in the nearest pocket to hold the gun, and keep it from falling below the waistband. Another way to spot people who carry an illegal handgun is to know that they tend not to use a holster, explains the Absolute Rights newsletter, because if they have to drop the gun and run they don't want to be caught with and have to explain an empty holster.

The Absolute Rights newsletter reveals some common methods that people use to carry a concealed handgun, which include:
1) A right-front pocket or the appendix area of the waist-band, because over 80% of armed suspects carry their guns in this location.

2) A right-rear pocket or the waistband between the right hip and the small of the back.

3) The left hip waistband (cross-draw position) is the least popular.

When looking for concealed weapons explains the Absolute Rights newsletter, look for things that don't look right, like a jacket that doesn't hang naturally, because an uneven hemline may indicate the presence of a gun in the coat pocket. When an armed person moves, explains the Absolute Rights newsletter, the heavy object will swing and because the person carrying the concealed handgun is aware of this, they may hold on to the hem near where the gun is to keep it steady.

This type of valuable survival information is delivered to subscribers of the Absolute Rights newsletter, that they can use to keep themselves and their families safe.
