My wife's original carry piece was a Model 642 Ladysmith. She tended to carry it off-body no matter how much I warned her about it. She switched to a Ruger LCP and now carries it IWB or in her pocket. I know it's not a Glock 26, but it's better than being in a purse or fanny pack. She can point shoot it pretty well and seven rounds of .380 Critical Defense are gonna leave a mark.
