    Holster option for a small woman

    I'm new to the forum and just got my CCW license. I have the new Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 38. I would like to carry it on my person. I am 5'4" and usually have a baby on my hip. Any suggestions on comfortable holsters or where would be the most comfortable position to carry?

    No, pockets on women's pants aren't very big. I don't think my gun would fit in there without a bulge.

    High Noon (forum sponsor) or Remorah holsters IMO. My wife likes them both actually. Baby on the hip? Maybe appendix carry would be good? I'm not for 'off body' carry at all if that tells you anything. Somewhat out of my league is revolvers.........but whatever you're working with is what's best. Believe in yourself and your chosen gear.

    I would suggest the Crossbreed MicroClip. Its kind of spendy ($58), but they are comfy and very nice. This is what I use for my Ruger LCP w/CT laser. Big kudos for Crossbreed

    Mitch Rosen makes a holster specifically for women called the Nancy Special named after his wife. Rosen holsters are top of the line in craftsmanship and function. It is available for S&W .38's. See link below, go to "on the belt holsters" and scroll down.

    I only wish I could convince my wife to use a holster - any holster. She absolutely insists on purse carry, which is better than nothing, but, obviously, isn't ideal.

    Thanks. My husband and I both love the Mitch Rosen holsters.
    Do you know of anyone that owns one of his Expressline holsters? And if they are happy with it? Or is it worth spending the extra money to get the regular one?

    I assume that you will have the kid on the off-hand hip leaving the strong side hip open for a holster. I have Kholster IWB holsters for several guns including my S&W 642 and they are very adjustable and very comfortable.

    We have six holsters for J frame revolvers. The one my wife uses the most is the most and likes the best is the Galco FLETCH. It is an OWB with a thumb snap. She does not like a holster without a thumb snap. There could be some advantages to a thumb snap with a child on the hip.

    Rosen's holsters will provide many years of service so spend the extra money and get his Presentation Grade, you will be glad that you did.

    Thanks Stevew.
    I hadn't really considered a thumb snap because I thought it would really slow me down if I needed to draw the gun. But, you are right, it might be a good thing with my baby on me.

    j4m,

    Have you checked out Limatune's blog? She is a small woman with a baby on the hip and does a great job of showing how to carry. She's at http://limatunesrangediary.blogspot.com/ .
    She also has a LOT of videos on youtube showing what she is talking about. Good on you for wanting to carry on your person rather than off-body carry!
