I picked my Girlfriend up a CZ75bd and want to get her started shooting IDPA but I need a holster. She's a small framed gal (5'3") and it was recommended I pick her up something that rides lower.

Thanks Ladies ;f

I asked here specifically because I was looking at getting the Womans point of view.

I'm not a woman so mine doesn't matter.

Since a woman's waist is 2" higher (average, but not ALL women) than a mans a drop holster is great. I have observed and experienced this myself. A good way to tell? If she does the 'chicken wing' thing, you know elbow bent high behind her while drawing. Of course if she wears low riding jeans this should not be an issue. I would suggest that you let her try many holsters (yours, you buddys, another woman's, kydex, leather, etc.) before you buy. Also you might consider a canted holster, some women seem to do well (Kind of like the waist thing, physiological differences in the way our hips are). Whatever she chooses thank you for supporting her and seeking other womens input.

The few times I've done IDPA everyone uses OWB and Kydex, so I suggest Sidearmor, CompTac, Blade Tech. You'll have to check which of their offerings are 'legal' for IDPA though. For cheap you can use Fobus.

Thanks Mrs. VR, that was awesome of you to fix that for me :)

And just checked..appears to be legal as long as the cant can not be adjusted while on the belt.

Thanks for Everyones Input I appreaciate it. I've got a Comp-Tac Paddle for my Glock 17 and she does the chicken Dance to draw. :clown: I also purchased the gun with a Fobus paddle and no way would I buy another one.

I've got a call into Comp-Tac, about their DOH/Diva holster, and I asked if she wanted a Pink holster she laughed at me.

Like I said thanks for all your input and pointing me in the right direction.

I have a Fobus paddle for my Colt Defender, and plan to pick up something from Andrews Gunleather for hubby's .44 Model 29 to shoot .44 Special in SSR class. I'm also going to get one for the Detective Special. I prefer SSR over SSP because under pressure I'm more comfortable with the speedloader drill.

I avoid the chicken wing thing by wearing hip-hugger jeans or by wearing the gun just behind my hip. You don't have to reach so high if you do that, I've found.

I actually HAVE a fobus for her that I purchased with the gun. I REALLY don't like it. It takes an act of god to draw the damn thing.
:laughabove:

I actually spoke to someone at Comp-Tac who gave me some info on the Comp-Tac Diva it sounds like its right up her alley. Now to save my nickels and dimes and get it. :rollsmiley:

Take a look at Ready Tactical at www.pistolpacking.com. Chris Stewart makes a great drop/offset holster for women.

I shoot IDPA frequently and I had a Kydex drop holster with an offset custom made by Mark Miller at Mach 2 Tactical www.m2Tactical.com It works great.
