Leave it to Human Events: Guns and Patriots to come up with a “must read” for women. Since we heard that our Space Cadet President plans on bringing up gun control, ladies, best to hurry down to your local gun show, get your concealed carry permit pronto. Some quality time with a good instructor at the range, and then lock and load. Of course, the ladies need to have a good place to pack their heat, so here tis:
So after much soul-searching, you’ve decided to carry a concealed firearm. You’ve counted the cost and believe it’s the right thing for you to do. But how? All your helpful male buds have told you that you really shouldn’t carry a firearm in your purse. Or maybe you just don’t enjoy carrying a purse at all, let alone an oversized one with funny zippers. So that’s out. But are there any other concealed carry options for a fashionable woman?
You betcha there are! Here are five classic carry methods you might consider
5) Ankle Carry :What it is: This carry method places the firearm on your lower leg in a wraparound style holster.
Why it’s great: Carrying on the ankle works particularly well for the fashion-conscious, because it allows you to hide the firearm on a part of your body that—let’s face it—men rarely stare at.
4) Kangaroo Pouch
What it is: Kangaroo-pouch carry places the firearm in a soft fabric pouch fastened around your waist and carried below the waistband.
Why it’s great: Using a product such as SmartCarry or Thunderwear, the firearm rides comfortably and discreetly below your waistband. It’s intended to be worn front and center, directly below your belly button but decidedly lower.
3) Belly Band
What it is: A wide, elastic belt rides underneath the clothing, positioning the firearm in an elastic pocket somewhere on the upper torso.
Why it’s great: Flexibility is the key to the belly band’s appeal. Sure, it can be a bit uncomfortable at times, but the payoff is huge. With this carry method, you can position the firearm anywhere on your torso that works with your physique and your outfit. As an added bonus, the elastic band often provides a waist-narrowing effect
2) Behind the Hip – OWB with Extreme Cant
What it is: With this method, the gun is worn behind the hip in an angled holster which rides outside the waistband on a sturdy belt.
Why it’s great: This is the traditional and standard carry method for good reason. It provides fast access and good security, and most firearms classes require this type of carry for safety’s sake. With a minor tweak for feminine physiology—deeply canting the holster to prevent the barrel from digging into the hip curve—it works especially well for slender, athletically proportioned women.
1) Appendix Carry – IWB
What it is: An appendix-carried holster places the gun inside the waistband in front of the hip, where it snugs into the “sweet spot” between belly button and hip bone.
Why it’s great: Bringing the firearm to the front of the body provides great security and fast access, but that’s not the primary benefit. The primary benefit? It allows curvy women to comfortably carry the gun on the belt, without allowing the hip curve to drive the muzzle outward and grind the grips uncomfortably into tender ribs.
