I finally convinced the GF that she needs to start carrying on her own. She has always considered her cell phone and the police to be "enough" protection and me and my carry gun enough when I am around. Finally convinced her that it doesn't make sense to rely on me being there with my gun, but rely on the response time of law enforcement when I am not there. She just purchased herself a Bersa Thunder 380 cc at the gun show today and she is trying to figure out the best way for her to carry it. She dresses in loose enough clothing most of the time that she should be fine with a decent IWB holster or even an OWB holster with certain clothing. She is also interested in carrying it in her purse, as she usually carries a large enough purse for the gun to stay completely concealed but still be easily accessible.
Interested in how the women on this forum carry, what they carry and any suggestions they may have that I can pass along to her. She is plenty familiar with firearms and gun safety, but has zero experience with carrying a gun and I realize I can only give her so much information as what works for me and how I dress is not going to do much good for how she dresses.
