Hello, I am new to this forum and want to know how to best conceal carry small arms such as Ruger LC9. I have found some interesting holsters using fabrics for women such as stretch latex and such. I do not use a belt and my legs are too short for a thigh holster. Also would not consider thigh holster because would be rather awkward trying to access my firearm whilst standing up!
Anyone know of these new types of holsters and have any luck?

Welcome from Wisconsin!
There are so many variations of holsters available that it's hard to recommend any, especially someone form the opposite sex. Continue with your research. You may find that you'll have to own several to fit in with the type of clothing you're wearing at the time. Safety & ease of accessing your firearm as well as ease of concealment are important considerations.

Welcome! I carried an LC9 for awhile. I don't know how you feel about the Flashbang, but I loved mine. It took a couple days to get it just right but turned out to be a great option. I also tried the Betty from the same company. It's IWB but no belt. I didn't love that one, but it's an option. The Pin-up Collection. Good luck finding what works best for you!

And no, I don't.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
