Some ladies shy away from carrying a concealed handgun because they don’t want to have a bulky holster strapped around their chest or waist. However, there are some great choices in CCW that are designed to appeal to ladies. If you aren’t familiar with the carry options available now, you may be pleasantly surprised at how many choices women have for discreetly carrying a concealed weapon.
1. Think Below the Waist
Why not take a cue from the guys and think below the waist when deciding how to carry your handgun? A concealed thigh holster offers a very private concealed carry option, placing your firearm where no one will think to look. Of course, shorts and above-the-knee skirts make this less than concealed, so be careful what outfit you choose to wear a thigh holster with.
2. Add an Accessory
The right accessory can make your look, and help keep you safe in a dangerous situation. No matter the occasion, you can find a suitable CCW accessory to meet your needs. A few examples include:
- Briefcases and laptop bags
3. Reach for Your Toes
While an ankle holster won’t have you quite stretching for your toes, it can give you an easy and comfortable way to carry a smaller handgun. Keep in mind that you will need to have appropriate pants to disguise the bulge at your ankle and that boots will negate this option.
4. Use Your Cleavage
Ladies, you have a distinct advantage on this one. Women are increasingly using their cleavage as a discreet place to hide a handgun. Don’t just stuff it inside your bra, however, since that can be both unsafe and uncomfortable. An in-bra holster lets you safely tuck a firearm where no one should be looking.
Carrying a concealed handgun can add to your confidence and feeling of safety. Whether you choose to use an accessory or you opt for an ankle, thigh or bra holster, always follow proper firearm safety guidelines when carrying.
