Thread: Female carry issue

  1. I've just started conceal carry so the holsters that I have bought for my S&W bodyguard .38 may not end up working for me but this is what I have so far: flashbang hoslster (http://flashbangholster.com/), the belly band holster (Belly Band Holster - The Original Bellyband - Concealment Holsters), a gun purse (GTM-0099BLST Ballistic Polyester Concealed Carry Shoulder Pouch GTM0099BLST), maxtuck IWB (MaxTuck IWB Holster - Jet Black Horsehide

    the gun purse is designed not to be cut. I don't use this all the time mostly for winter carry while outdoors wear it would be difficult to get to a holster under my clothes. I can have this purse open at the top with my hand resting on my revolver handle while walking through the parking lot. After getting to my destination I switch the gun to whatever my on body holster is for that outfit.

    he maxtuck hoslter is very similar to the crossbreed. After doing some research and seeing this video ( ) i decided on the maxtuck. The customer service is GREAT!

    I'm also looking into "hip purses for the summer. the purse would be attached to my belt and stay on me all the time. basically it would be an updated feminized version of the awful fanny pack :)

    These aren't made for a gun but with a pocket holster I think it would work

    Here are some thoughts...


  5. I don't like the idea of a bra holster personally (like the flashbang). I wear my simple bellyband up around my ribs (it's adjustable) so the pistol is entirely overshadowed by natural endowment (sits just under the bra)and there is absolutely no imprint. Also, this way you can position the gun on the left, the right, or in the middle if you choose and it's not against your skin at all. A size medium accommodates size 32 - 36 I believe.

    Purse draw is slow, thus not the best.

    I also do NOT like the Purse, or off body carry, what will be stolen first...the purse, having to get a hand into it to deploy the weapon could be the reason for lack of success. I really like the STICKY HOLSTER-IT WORKS believe it or not, just in the waste band between the hip bone and center point on the belly.

    I carry either a 3" 1911 or my Springfield XD Compact (my usual carry, these days), both in .45. I carry both in a Comp-tac Minotaur MTAC holster. They have come out with a less expensive version, the Minotaur Spartan. I it in carry appendix carry. Every now and then I will find a pair of pants that it is uncomfortable with, but usually I don't have any issue with that combination. I did give up cute belts when I carry. I opted for a kydex reinforced belt from Comp-tac.

    Crossbreeds are some of my favorites as well. I found the Comp-tac had more adjustment options.

    Hope that helps! For me, finding something that was comfortable to wear despite my curves was the biggest challenge.

    The purse is not the best - purses get grabbed and then you are left with nothing. Carry on your person, if possible.
