How to get the most out of your Modular Wedge Kit

Hopefully you’ve had a chance to watch the Concealment Sweet Spot and Poke and Check video’s as well as our two part wedge series, but if not I’m going to briefly summarize on those topics in this blog post. If you need more on those concepts though, go check out their dedicated videos.

Sweet Spot

First things first, you need to find your bodies concealment sweet spot. Without that foundation the rest of the process is going to be a bit like shooting in the dark. Every body has natural peaks and valleys, and it’s important to make sure your gun is positioned into a valley and off of a peak.

Poke and Check

Now that you’ve placed your gun in your concealment sweet spot you’ll want to look down at your concealment and take note of portions of the gun that, if brought in closer to the body, could conceal more effectively. For most this is the rear sight, optic, or the edge of the grip.

To learn which portions of the gun need to move closer to your body simply poke – and check. Keep this concept in mind as we will use it once we start applying our new wedge kit.

Wedge Use

When it comes to wedge use there is one main concept to understand, and that is, wherever we place the wedge, it will move the opposite side of the gun into the body.

To dive deeper into the proper wedge use, check out Part 1 and Part 2 of our wedge use series, or check out the wedge portion of this video for a summary.

Application

Now that we have a basic understanding of peaks and valleys, the poke and check method, and wedge use, lets apply these principles to our new wedge kit!

When it comes to setting up a holster for my concealment needs I prefer to start with the gun outside of my pants.

But before doing this, make sure you’ve attached your velcro to the holster.

If you’re using your wedge kit with a belt and holster, and not an enigma, you can simply put your belt on outside your pants and attach your holster for setting up your wedge placement.

Once you have your gun on body you’ll want to revisit the Poke and Check method. Poke the areas of the gun that seem to be problem areas. This will tell you where you need to place your wedge in order to press the printing problem area in closer to the body. Doing it this way gives you instant feedback on my wedge placement. If you’d rather do this on a tabletop, and not on body, that’s perfectly acceptable as well.

Bonus Tips!

  • Wedges are designed to be a fulcrum for your gun, to help even out the gun on an uneven surface, but they can also be used to pad uncomfortable pinching points on the holster
  • The bottom end of the holster can be a hot spot for a lot of people, particularly when we are spending longer periods of time bending or sitting. To help remedy this you can simply place your wedge slightly off the edge of the holster, that way, when you go to sit or bend, the wedge wraps under the holster and provides a cushion!
  • These wedges are great for creating unique shapes by building on top of each other. If you choose to stack your wedges keep in mind that as they settle into position they might need small tweaks to ensure that they settle exactly where you want them.

And that was your complete guide on making the most out of your wedge kit! Every body type, gun choice, and holster design pairing will produce different wedge placement needs, but the methods we discussed in this blog post should give you the full framework that you’ll need for dialing in any set up!
