For The Ladies.......& Guys who care
I am always amazed by the poor, foolish & sometimes dangerous advice given regarding Women & Concealed Carry. I'm actually working on a website devoted entirely towards the needs of Women who can and/or want to Carry a Concealed Weapon. Until then, please check out these sources:

Indeed! Thanks for posting these!

I look forward to your site when you get it up as well.

Say - I have a fashionable new product holster idea and the means with which to put it into production. But I am looking for demographics about women who carry. Any suggestions where I might go?

Thanks!

I just found this website tonight: http://www.womensholsters.com

It has pretty good info about choosing a holster for a woman's body. I have not used their products, but might have to order something!

Great list !

Can I add my site? www.safeinrochester.com

Most of the classes I teach include a lot of women that are interested in what they can do to protect themselves. It's a target of mine to get good training and instruction to every female person type I know.

I belong and contribute to the 2 A Sisters, the Liberty Belles, the AWSDA, and the NRA's women's programs.

Thanks

I am looking for reviews of shoulder holsters. I currently have the one I use with a belt but I don't like it (it hurts my hipbone). I thought I would get one for the shoulder. I thought about the gun purse but my husband doesn't think that would be a good idea. I'm trying to get my CCL so I'll be practicing more and would like to carry my gun more comfortable. Thanks in advance!! Any ideas would be greatly accepted!!! :supergrin:

Can we add our site as well? We are updating our site to carry womens concealment wear as well as mens. We work directly with the manufacturer so we do custom things as well. There is some preview pricing (mens and ladies)here if there is any interest plus we have more styles and designs each season:

Our regular store is being updated and will be back online next week.

I am still waiting for my CWL; it should be received shortly since they have already cashed my check. However, I have been carrying on my person for about a month while at home. The idea was to find the most comfortable and efficient way for me to carry.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
I did not like the idea of the carry purse for obvious reasons. I canít all of a sudden keep my purse on my shoulder at all times when visiting friends when before I just left it in their family room or bedroom. The same holds true if attending a house party, most people would leave their purse at a central place, you donít really see others walking around with their purse on them at all times. When you go to a restaurant you lay your purse on the chairís back or on an empty chair next to you. There were just too many occasions when the purse was at the reach of others.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
A quick inventory of my closet revealed that my clothing didnít have belt loops. My wardrobe consists of business wear and light casual wear for evenings and weekends. I live in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Miami</st1:place></st1:City>; the hot weather doesnít really lend itself for much layering. I have purchased a few light, buttoned shirts to wear open over my regular casual wear to assist in concealing the new bump.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
I have seen the undershirt holsters on line and that seemed like a great idea; however, the neckline was too high and wouldnít go with most of the outer clothing I wore. One thing that worked for me, is to purchase a tight fitting exercise tank top made of some spandex material (so that it stays in place). You may have to look a bit before you find an exercise tank top that doesnít stop at the waist, you want something that goes down to your hip if your preferred carry position is at the hip or back. To this tank top add pockets at your preferred carry position with the best cant for you, this can be at the back, hips or the torso under your arm. You can add multiple pockets so that you can alternate carry positions depending on what you are wearing. This is used in conjunction with the Nemesis pocket holster; it is sticky and will stay in place. Since the shirt just has the stitched up pocket and not the holster itself, it is very easy to machine wash without damaging or deforming your holster. I tried this for several hours while on our deck; although comfortable, unless I am going from one air conditioned place to another it is not as practical for our hotter summer months. I will be falling back to this once the heat is not as intolerable. I sent the idea to DeSantis Holster to see if they can come up with something that looks a bit more professional, mine isnít that pretty but it works. This is supposed to be an undergarment so unless I have to lift my outer shirt to draw no one will ever see it.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
For now I am using the belly band and plan to use this one during the hotter days of the year. The fanny pack will be used when going to park or outside parties where a more a more casual look is appropriate.

I hope this helps someone. :wavey:

Misty,

What kind of gun are you looking to holster? I have hundreds of holsters to offer. Once I know the gun, I'll post the holsters that would work for you on Lady Marksman. I have shoulder holsters, belly bands, waist holsters and more. It's a newer site and I'm still uploading my inventory so if I know what you need, I'll make sure it's there for you.

A pleasure to meet you, my apologies for the delay in posting, had forgotten to return to this thread. I have a G19.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
You probably read above my version of the undershirt holster, I just needed much thinner straps to go with my current clothing and avoid a serious rash or blistering from having the grip riding so high under my arm.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
The one I see myself using most is the belly band, if you ignore the issues of rehosltering it is the most comfortable and discrete way of carrying. Hopefully I will never have a need to reholster in public that means I had to draw.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
I followed your name to the forum and joined. I will be doing some reading as time permits. I usually take breaks while I do computer work I wasnít able to finish at the office and read the forum, I have much to learn and can utilize these breaks for that (not to mention that they are fun). :)<o:p></o:p>

www.klnullholsters.com

Girls, if you want a shoulder rig, go here. Trust me. I swear by my Coronado purse but have my hands on the Unique Shoulder Holster, what he calls his "USH." It's designed for subcompact and compact Glocks. He also has the SKR for J frame S&W revolvers and his SMZ for autos like the Walther PPK, all of them are similar. They hang vertical inverted and once you get used to the draw they're slick. And Mr. Null is both lightning fast and easy to deal with, and builds a quality, cost-logical product that won't break your bank. $110 for a leather USH, $80 for it in polymer, and $65 for the SMZ and SKR.

Miao, Cat
