    I have been trying to get myself used to my husbands Colt Dective Special, and so far so good.... I love the feel of this pistol... So far neither one of us have shot this gun.... It is amazing and beautiful and fits perfect in my small hands...


    We have a Kimber that I just can't get used to carrying for some reason, I don't know why, but I just can't.. I have tried and nothing seems to be thre right position for me.. I am small framed and yes I do wear a lot of tight clothing... I keep trying different spots because I would eventually like to carry it or a small Glock...

    If anyone has any great ideas out there they would greatly be appreciated!!!! Thanks so much
    Women are built different than men. Men are either fat, skinny or with gut...women always have a shape and are always shapely. Do not listen to those who say SOB is risky in ways. I do think slimmer pistols (semi autos) are better suited to carry for any gal. I've gone through this with my ex actually. She was pretty curvy and full size. Revolvers to me are simply a thing of the past. If you don't want to carry a fanny pack or in a purse and are seriously needing an IWB holster then there are few options. Clothing is one.....tight clothing does not work well for CC plain and simple. Difficult to conceal and may be painful. My ex carried 5-6 O'clock with a High Noon Bare Asset. She carried at work. Rather large framed gal. Ever tried carrying SOB palm out draw? I'll tell you that the semi auto pistols are going to be more easily concealed than revolvers for you and most women who wear on the body.
    Thing to remember is...that if your carry doesn't work for you, then consider working with your carry. This may involve a change of clothing or a whole new you. You need to figure out what's most important. Clothing can be changed....living is ultimately worth making some changes isn't it? Feel free to PM me any time.

    My daughter is small-framed--Size 2, 104 pounds. Not sure of her bra size (I'm a guy, we adopted her when she was sixteen, no kids of our own, and I turn red as a beet at such mentions of female apparatus and garments), but I think she's on the order of a small B. Regardless, with her frame and build, a bra-holster doesn't work and yes, I braved the red-face and we tried some.

    What DID and DOES work for her is a shoulder holster as she does have fairly broad shoulders and she likes wearing ladies jackets and unbuttoned tops (not sure what the official fashion word is. For guys, I call them sports jackets). She likes carrying my Model 19 with the 2 1/2" barrel--the gun she learned how to shoot with, and a shoulder holster I had made for her works extremely well.

    The other holster that works well for her is a paddle-holster for her Sig Sauer 232.

    Being small-framed can be a challenge as far as carrying comfortably and adequately concealed. Let us know what works as most of us have wives, daughters, nieces, etc and that info will serve everyone well.

    I carry 4/430 it works out well for me.
    Could you please note/reference ONE story indicating such an injury?

    If you fell on your hip with a gun at 3:30 injury to your hip could also be a result.

    I'm just sayin'...

    I never had much luck with the Flashbang holster. I love the concept, but my gun never stayed put (and neither did the girls with the gun stuck in there ). It always moved and flopped around and I was constantly having to adjust it....can't really do that discretely.
    You should look in to a belly band! I got mine off of amazon for less than $25 bucks and have yet to find an outfit it won't work with. I do have a black and a white one, you can adjust it anywhere on your waist and they're super comfy.

    ETA: With some of my more tighter shirts, I pull the belly band up under my bra and adjust the gun near my arm so it can't be seen. Most of my summer shirts are v-neck/low-ish cut type and I can access the gun easily through the neck of my shirts if I had to. As with most women, our hips are bigger around than our waist, so the belly band tends to ride up during the day. If I pull it all the way up right under my bra, it never moves.

    Wow thanks talk about being thrown under the bus. By the way the term Hunnybunny is my CIA, covert, undercover name that I used to use on secret missions nothing more.

    I am very proud of her for wearing around the house and trying different holsters and such. The detective special we will have to talk about before it gets fired. We do several webcam lessons when we can and she has learned to clear and disassemble the Glock, Kimber and Sig and we discuss the who, what's and why's of carrying. Currently the SIG 238 is her hands down favorite and she shoots it well but she is not intimidated by any weapon so far.

    Right now there are several holsters there at the house for her to try including IWB, OWB, and paddle. She is currently using a Galco J hook and simply moving it around her strong side. She did very well and liked my Para carry nine with the Galco Royal Guard worn behind her right hip. She is not really going fully to the small of her back. Clothes are a big issue with her and other women's sizes. I did not realize the complications involved in fitting a holster for her frame. The act of finding a belt that fits here that has enough rigidity is tough, she is going to order one from Theis holsters I think.

    As far as weapon choices there is pretty much one of everything to choose from and she has the upper body strength to rack the slides on everything except the SA TRP but she is comfortable with SA and hammers. The Kimber she is referring to is one of her favorites to shoot it is simply a Kimber .22 conversion on a RIA frame. Holsters for this are limited to what I use for my TRP and Browning Hi Power which the primary is a Raven Concealment rig which is simply to big for her small waist.

    It will be good to get home again and head out to a few classes and let her shoot and learn all she wants. Got to brag on her though she takes of everything there and puts up old grumpy self so that is the least I can do.

    Lory and her SIG and during one of our video chats.

    Nobody mentioned the SmartCarry. I've used one for over a decade with a 4" M1911 when IWB won't float. It's very effective and comfortable.

    Agreed, more than you might think have had this problem. Not something that should be carried in winter.


    Also couldn't imagine it's very comfortable sitting down...

    AIWB is very comfortable when seated as long as you are not trying to carry to big a gun. This is my preferred method of carry when I ride and have no problems with a Glock 19 or Para Carry in this position.
