    Holster question for the Ladies

    I've been researching for a holster for my wife's CW9 and would like some feedback on what the ladies here have found. I've known about Mitch Rosen NS for some time. I've found a few others since. Any help would be appreciated.

    While, when last I checked, I am not a woman, here's my .02 anyway.
    Holster choice for women is a very sticky wicket, indeed. The variations in women's skeletal structures is vast and compounded by how much adipose they carry on it and it's distribution. For example, "child bearing hips", no hips, "little boy hips", no butt, bubble butt... ad infinitum. In contrast, most men are either "V"s or pears. In short, what may be a brilliant choice for some, may be a disaster for others.
    My best advice would be to choose a premium maker, whom you trust. Take several photos of the wife, from various angles and send them to the maker for competent suggestions. This is only pertinent if she shoots and carries a lot, thereby making the investment worthwhile.

    For many women, "offset" is a big issue. This refers to how far the grip of the pistol rides from the belt. While for most men, offset is a disaster in a CCW holster, without it, the gun tips inward on a womans frame and prints the muzzle.

    If buying off the rack, try before you buy.

    Good luck
