Default Ladies that carry?!?

I'm just curious as to how you go about it. I have done some research on it, but most females...at least not this one...don't wear baggy clothing. Winter is one thing, what about summer time?

I'd imagine this is where sub-compact guns are best, since ladies clothes tend to be tighter or form fitting it would be impossible to conceal a full size 1911

Flash bang holster?
Unfortunately we don't have that many ladies on this forum to share their ideas. I think I can count all of the fairer sex here on both hands.

My gal carries quite a bit of the time and believe it or not her purse, which is usually a bit oversized, makes a great, commonly overlooked carry location.

If we are together one of us is always carrying a backpack. Everyone is carrying these days. They are very common.

If you get a good one from someone like Maxpedition, they have a very subtle zipper compartment on the back of the backpack, right next to your beltline, where you can reach your sidearm without any additional effort or unslinging the backpack and fumbling through it.

Another great invention that I saw posted here by the developer was a combination bra and small carry holster between "the girls" for a small revolver or auto pistol. The model, the designers' wife, was not of the "most gifted" category and with a T-shirt on it was all but impossible to see she was carrying a nice 6 shot revolver up there.

I would not carry in a purse. You are potentially arming a purse snatcher. I don't wear very tight clothing (as I am not young anymore) but a Remora holster in a pocket makes a pretty good carry situation.

Do you wear your purse on one shoulder, or across your chest? Makes a huge difference. As does a background in hand to hand martial arts training.
