CCW holsters that allow women to carry concealed 24/7!

In the upcoming March 2014 issue of Combat Handguns, author Lynne Finch writes, “If you carry a pistol, odds are good that you need a holster. The purpose of a holster is to securely hold and provide access to your firearm. Simple, right? Not so much. Holsters are a lot like shoes. One size does not fit all. If you’ve been carrying for a while, you probably have a holster bag, the place where old holsters go to die. Don’t feel bad—we all have them. Holsters are very individual, and what works great for me may not be what is best for you.”

Finch offers several tips for first-time buyers and seasoned carriers alike. “So, how do you choose a holster? Consider your lifestyle and your usual manner of dress. Are you casual? Dressy? Usually wear two pieces? Skirts or dresses? All of these questions can start to drive you to a holster style, be it an ankle, inside-the-waistband (IWB), thigh, bra or corset rig, etc. You want to have a holster that works for you at least 70 percent of the time. You can have a second option for the exceptions. Why not change up your carry method every day based on what you are wearing? Consistency! And that can expensive. You will need to practice and get comfortable with your holster so that in a moment of need, you reach right for your gun and find it.”
