    Question Finally comfortable with it.... New ideas needed....

    I have gotten myself comfortable with the back holster for my Sigp238.. I have treid to get used to the side and front holster's but I am unable to get myself comfortable with them on this gun... I would love to try the " Flashband bra" holster to see how it works... Does anyone know much about it???


    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

    Be careful with carrying in the small of your back. Some people have fallen/tripped backwards and landing on their back and the handgun has caused some serious issues for them.[ ouch!] Not common but it could happen.
    I carry 4/430 it works out well for me.

    I carry my P238 at 4-5:00 in my crossbreed mini tuck. I love it. It form to my hip right away.

    I carry my LCP behind my right hip at maybe 5:00, so pretty close to the middle of my back. The only holster I have at the moment is my CrossBreed, but I love it and haven't carried anywhere else in the entire year that I've carried! I haven't actually purchased the Flashbang holster, but I've toyed around with putting my gun where it would sit in my bra and I get the frankenboob look I've seen people write about I'm in the same boat that I'm pretty small-framed and wear a lot of form-fitted tops.

    Have you looked into the Kangaroo carry holster? I just received one in the mail and was going to write a review, just haven't gotten there yet. If you do, my first suggestion is order a smaller size than you think you need. I measured as a small, but it's too big and I would need an extra small. If you've got any sort of hourglass figure, though, I don't know that it would work. Because the band is canvas, not elastic, and is a few inches wide, if you put it on to fit under your bustline there is a lot of slack in the bottom part of the canvas and it pokes out and just fits very awkwardly. They almost need to make it tapered? I think it would only work with looser blouses or t-shirts, but not worth the money to me. I just think I'm going to send mine back and try a bellyband, kind of frustrating

    Let us know if you find out what works - I'd definitely be interested in trying it! Sounds like we have the same issues

    ETA: I'm sure you've probably seen this, but if not, faliaphotography is also really tiny and wears modern clothes. This video helped me a lot.

    This is a big problem in the winter time and can cause serious back injuries with a slip and fall. With a flash bang dolly Parton could carry a bazooka

    Oye! I hadn't seen that video before. Guess small girls can use the flashbang, however, she's um... much less topheavy than I am and her bra is about three sizes too big. I might like my guns, but I still value support over storage space.

    Flashbang looks interesting, but we older gals worry enough about gravity in that area. It would be sad to wear one and still have to draw from the waist.

    Try a belly band. They can be adjusted until you're comfortable and allow you to carry concealed in almost any situation.

    So the old farmers say: "You can't keep the roosters out of the hen house." and who would want to. Since I am on the subject.
