Thread: Ladies, How Do You Carry?

  1. I carry a S&W 38 special in a tan leather Gun Toten Mama purse

    I carry on my body at about the 2 o'clock position. I tried at the 4:30 / 5:00 position but that didn't work too well for me. I don't know if that was because of my current holster or not. Carrying near my back hurt everytime I got in the car. I'm thinking of getting a new holster from Crossbred, which may take care of that problem. If not, I like carrying at the 2 o'clock position for now.

    I personally cannot see myself ever carrying my gun in a purse, as sometimes I will have my purse, some bags and a drink. My purse is a black hole, that it is hard to find anything in. If a problem comes up, I can drop everything I'm carrying and reach my gun on my body. Plus as I was taught in my CCW class, what happens when the bad guy takes my purse?

    I'm considering a belly band, but for now my purse is doing great. If you get a purse made for carrying, the "black hole" issue is not a problem. And if you take a more advanced class (you might need to ask if they cover this) like marksmanship or tactical carry, they cover drawing from a purse, like mine did. I prefer the purse in dark, late night big parking lot type situations because I can have my hand on or near my weapon inside the holster in my purse. And if by some miracle my purse does get snatched (buy a carry purse with uncutable straps to keep that from ever happening) I still come away with my weapon. That's how they're designed.

    Good, leave the purse for combs and wallets and all the other stuff. A purse (even a carry purse) is not the best way to go. I teach self defense and how to use a carry purse but the inherent problems still exist. You cannot keep your hand on the weapon, as Walther suggests, the entire time. Letting the purse fall to the ground as you draw is the best method but it is always possible for the weapon to snag on material. Of course, purse snatching is a constant concern. Shooting through the purse is not a good option either. The 2 O'clock position is fine. Keep it there.

    What kind of carry do you recommend for those of us that have to wear dresses to work? Surely a carry purse is a better option than unbuttoning your dress to get to a belly band?

    Can you carry at work??? Where do you keep your purse while at work?

    I don't wear a dress so I can't recommend a good alternative. I only recommend that you find a way to keep the weapon on your person. Perhaps an ankle carry? If a purse is the only possible way to carry then use it. It's still better than nothing.

    Yes I can. And it stays in my office with me. When I have to leave my office for a meeting or something I lock it in my desk.

    None of my dresses are longer than mid-calf, so an ankle holster won't work.

    They do make a bra holster and also a thigh holster that may work for on body carry. What about a shoulder holster with a blazer over the dress? They also make a "day runner" with a separate compartment for your pistol. It's all going to depend on your build and other factors.

    Well, I have no answer for you. Perhaps one of the other ladies in here have a solution to this. All dresses button or zip up the back right Is a dress an absolute must at work? A skirt and blouse would work better.
