The other thing I think I forgot to mention about the Galco is the fact that the gun compartment locks. The only time I use this option is when I visit friends. I lock the purse when I get inside and keep the key in my pocket until it's time to go.
I agree with the deputy about carrying off body, there are definate disadvantages, but we can't always carry the way the guys do. I have adjusted the way I dress considerably and still have a hard time carrying on my hip. I've also tried the thunder ware route and that is just plain awful. I couldn't sit down and looked like I was happy to see everyone. That look just dosen't work for women. ;f
