    Legitimate Bra Holster?

    Flashbang Bra Holster | The Firearm Blog

    Great idea, bad idea, what say you? Another way to get women who hate IWB to carry besides the purse?

    Here's another video by the designer that wasn't in that above link.

    YouTube - Flashbang holster salesman demo

    Not sure how I feel about her suggestion to shoot through a shirt, but overall it looks kind of neat. Glaring issues, thoughts?

    The draw will certainly distract an attacker momentarily. I does appear to be a viable option for a small lightweight firearm.

    The biggest issue I see in watching a couple of videos for it, is that usually when the woman uses her off hand to lift up her shirt, that arm is swept with the gun during the un-holstering process. That may, or may not be an issue for you, but some people don't like horizontal shoulder holsters for the same reason.

    In general, you lose some fine motor skills when you get the adrenaline dump in a lethal situation, so I don't really want any part of my body being swept with my own weapon, but that is just my opinion.

    Umm, I'm not a woman but that doesn't seem like a good holster to have. All joking aside, it looks like the shooter in the video got away with hiding it because it appears he chest is large(r). Take a woman that is flat chested and that gun is going to print. It also seemed like it is too easy for an AD with that holster along with too much movement of both hands.

    I could watch her draw that pistol all day......seriously though way cool on the unique mod on holsters for women. I guess this actually puts the ladies at +1 for concealed options cause you won't find me wearing a bra holster. ;)

    edit: could be a good back-up gun spot...

    i was watching this and thinking it could be great for an on the vest holster, sew a thick piece of leather on top of the vest, attach holster, done.

    Three things that caught my attention of this. 1) Having kydex next to the skin I would think can be irritating. Most IWB holsters seem to have some form of protective material between the holster and the skin to eliminate irritation and perspiration problems. The other 2 comments are more "lighthearted" but came to me as I read replies---2) If the woman is "flat chested", she can wear two holsters--double the defense and it will give her a great bustline and 3) great bullets!!

    I'm no lady either but it looks like there would be a issue with printing and I agree with Kelcarry's comments I also think irritation and perspiration would be a problem. I don't think its a bad design,just needs a little fine tuning.
    I would rather die standing up than live life on my knees.

    The big issue I see here is the fact that she is indeed sweeping her weak side arm and especially when reholstering. If your considering this holster, DO NOT REHOLSTER with a loaded gun.
    Also while her times were near 1.5 seconds, she was cheating by not bringing the gun up and sighting which would add a little more time. In a self defense close range shooting it might be ok and even neccessary to point shoot, but it makes the draw time seem better than it actually is when compared to a draw and aim shot from a different holster.

    I was wondering if someone was going to comment on that. I found it gut-wrenching watching her re-holster with what appeared to be a loaded DAO with no safety. I'm not knocking the holster design, but proper form should be like that of a pocket holster - Which is remove the holster, holster the firearm, then replace the holstered firearm. What they were having her perform was an ND waiting to happen.

    Need a bit of a bulge to hide that I am thinking. Probably even more so for the revolver versions.

    The bigger the bulge, the larger an item can be concealed in the recess below. Just like a large chest with a small waist below.

    She appeared to be about three feet from the target, which would suggest that shooting from a retentive position was justified. Even so, I consider 1.5 seconds for a defensive draw, too slow.
