Re: As if choosing a holster wasnt hard enough...

I agree this is a good idea. My hubby and I needed a quick bit of cash so I thought, hm, I've got 2 holsters I don't need... I had a kydex iwb from the well armed woman and a leather iwb I made so I decided to try and sell them to the pawn shop. Guess how much they wanted to give me for each? $1. I know I need cash and I didn't expect much, but $1??? Needless to say I did not take that deal and have both holsters still.

Re: As if choosing a holster wasnt hard enough...

Best thing to do. It makes carrying in public so much easier after getting the plastic when you're used to carrying at home. Plus you can do frequent mirror checks to be sure you're properly concealed, that way you won't feel constantly exposed in public or pull on your clothes all the time.

I have a Cross Breed IWB holster on the way that I can use around the house till my CHL arrives. I was wondering if anyone has tried both the Femme Fatale corset holster and the Flash Bang, and which did you prefer? I wear a lot of dresses, especially in the summer. Also, can the flash bang be worn with a strapless bra? I know I want another holder for non-jeans days, just trying to figure out what's best. I see that some ladies have tried either or, but I didn't see where anyone has tried both.

****I know this post refers to undergarments, so I'm very sorry if it offends anyone.****
I only use the flashbang and my leather iwb holster. I can wear my flash bang with my sig p238 with a lot of tops, but if they're very fitted (dresses too) you can see my the bulge of the grip. Ask me how I know.... :roll:
Anyhow, I wouldn't try wearing the flashbang with a strapless. I suppose if you had a lighter gun, like my keltec p32 that's under 10 oz loaded.
Some lessons I've learned with the flashbang: make sure there's plenty of room for your gun and, well, you know. If you have an ill fitting bra the gun and, other stuff, have to fight for real estate and guess which loses? I've had that problem and when I bent down and came up my sig was horizontal and very obvious. Also, I like wearing it in the "deep concealment" position which holds it a little higher up and feels more secure for me, but if you wear it like that with a small gun you can lose the whole thing in there. My advice? Try to stick with a bra with a thinner gore (between the girls). Be sure to practice drawing a cleared gun out of it with different types of outfits so you'll know the best way to draw and how quickly you can produce. And another piece of advice is for safety sake, holster before putting on the bra. Otherwise you're basically aiming a loaded gun at your chest/head to get it into the holster.
I'm about to try making a thigh holster for my keltec for times when the flash bang and iwb won't work.
Good luck!

Re: As if choosing a holster wasnt hard enough...

Well since I original wrote this post, I've acquired quite a few holsters! I did get on well armed woman and ordered a kydex iwb, a flash bang, I have a remora, and 2 leather holsters I made myself. I'm working on creating a thigh holster and then I should be set in the holster department!

Re: As if choosing a holster wasnt hard enough...

I was resistant for a long time but the more I researched and watched the news the more I realized that the only way I can really protect myself and my children is to be armed. I guess with my hunt for the perfect holster I've become slightly obsessed. Most of my free time is spent researching holsters, laws, and anything else CCW related! ;-)

Re: As if choosing a holster wasnt hard enough...

Thanks for all of the suggestions! Definitely going to keep researching. It's just hard because it's a whole new thing I'm venturing into and I'm worried I'm going to blow through a ton of money and have a bunch of holsters that won't work for me. I think I'm going to try to modify an uncle mikes iwb holster and see if I can get that to work at least for a while. I also found a way to make my own belly band type holster so will probably try that too.

As if choosing a holster wasnt hard enough...

Hi all. I'm still waiting on my plastic but am trying to find the right holster to get used to by carrying around the house. I ordered a remora holster and it works ok, but I have to carry at about 2 o'clock with a slight cant (or the rounded side pokes out and looks odd), but every time I sit, the corner of the holster digs into my leg. I have a Sig Sauer P238 with a flush mag on the way. I really want to carry IWB. I'm 5'2" and 135 lbs. I would like to find something that is pretty slim without much bulk. I like to carry pretty deep with pretty much just the grip and hammer above my pants line. I'd like to have an adjustable cant too.
But here's where I'm struggling. I can find several things but all require a belt. I have a knee injury that makes it painful to wear jeans, so I wear a lot of gym pants, skirts, and shorts. Most of my clothes can't be worn with a belt. Any suggestions? Is there anywhere in the Houston area that has a large variety of holsters I could try?
