In light of the recent death of a woman who accidentally shot herself while holstering her weapon, Glenn Fleming from Acadiana Gunworks in Scott urged folks to make sure they buy a quality holster and know how to holster and drawing your weapon.

"When selecting a holster of any type, make sure it's a good quality holster," Fleming said, and then make sure you practice holstering and drawing your weapon.

"Start slow. Slow is smooth and smooth is fast," Fleming said.

What type of holster you get depends on your personal preferences, such as where you wear it. And when practicing your draw, Fleming said to triple-check to ensure your weapon is unloaded.
