Great video for the woman that likes to accessorize.

I have a Galco lite too and it works great! Get her a Blackhawk Serpa holster as I just got that for a class and it worked very well.

I thought I would revive this post, since it has one really good video on concealed carry for women. (I'm well aware that it's an older thread)

The woman who did the CCW video also has a site with more gun and carry reviews. They are also posted on Facebook. http://www.faliaphotography.com/

(When you get to the site, roll down to the photo of the Christmas stocking. This is what I want for Christmas, hint hint)

I still like the belly band. In the winter, I can carry a full size semi and 3 extra mags and no one knows. It is also good if you are Gluten sensitive, someone ordered pizza and the idiot that you are, ate some. Stomach bloats, pants don't fit for two days but that belly band still works lol

I do like that stocking stuffer!!!!!!!!

I'm all about the belly band. I do not wear dresses or layer my clothes. I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal.

Another thought, Flash bang bra holster.

I'm not impressed with the Flashbang for a couple reasons but I'm really not impressed with her draw/fire time since she is not sighting anything in and I don't know anyone who shoots from the hip.

I am not likely to re-holster a loaded gun pointed at my chest.

I am with you Bugs - It is nice to see she can get it out of her bra in 1.5 seconds but she is not aiming - not so good. I would rather shoot in 2.5 seconds and be aiming. I don't like to carry a 380 and that is about the only size that would fit up there. Also, the gun is ready to fire - on the range, there is no stress. In real life, she might blow off one of the sisters if she grabs the trigger - if you get my drift LOL

I will stick with the belly band - it will only shoot my leg is something goes wrong

I haven't decided yet where I would holster a gun, but it wouldn't hide there for me, if you get my "B" drift. I think I would be more inclined to wear a compression hip band and have it on my back an d not pointed at my chest. I have a problem unusual to most, I wear an insulin pump that could get hung up. I wonder now how many people think I do a lousy job of conceal carry.

Savannah - I know someone with an insulin pump and it is hard to place the gun where it will not get hung up. They basically do the same as you.

The only thing I heard bad about placing it on your lower back - if you fall - that is metal against the spine. Some people have gotten some bad spinal injuries falling on the gun - however, you have to do what you have to do. AND it is not a lousy job, by you, of concealing a gun. Carry on

Where are we on ankle holsters? I'm a jeans and boots girl most of the time in the winter and could easily manage this. But I'm not sure about draw time (bend over, move jean leg, grab, up again, aim fire).

I think I just talked myself out of this... Anybody?

I'm a little iffy on the ankle holster because I worry that if I have to draw it, I have to bend over and take my eye off the perp and I don't think that is a good idea. Also, at my age and weight, bending over can be a problem. LMAO

Gawd, I just read back through my post and I sounded semi drunk! Ok, really drunk, but I wasn't.

I worry about conceal carry because of my pump. I'm not CCW licensed yet. I know I can't do the under breast thing cuz I am smaller in that area. Back of pants or hip, I worry about entanglement in my pump. Ankle just seems clumsy and pockets are too small. I guess I could put the pump on the other side, but that is a lot to lug around on my waistband.

When I said I wondered how many people thought I did a lousy job at conceal carry, I meant that my pump is forever sticking out like a giant lump on my back. I never thought someone might think it was a weapon.

I swear, I wasn't drinking this morning. LOL.

Maybe I am drunk but I understood that. LMAO I have some friends that wear chemo pumps and insulin pump and they have been asked if they are carrying due to the bump that the pump creates so it made sense to me.

Ankle holsters. If I wore one, it would just be for back up in case something happened to my primary gun.

Savannah, if you we're drunk, so was I. I understood you. Lol

Not to worry, Savannah. I understood you. What worries me is that I did!

Now, back to holsters: Leather or composite?

Leather is nicer, gets soft with use. Composite is custom-built for a given gun, water proof. Galco was recommended. Sells both.
