That gives a whole new meaning to booby trap. Just think of all the fun you could have searching her to find the pistol.

I have had a few female friends say that they would like to carry a gun for self-defense and ask about carry methods. I always try to be helpful but I'm a guy (a wide one ) and therefore I don't have the same issues trying to conceal a weapon that a woman does. So, I just wanted to post a link to a video my GF found. The woman in the video is quite knowledgable on concealed carry issues that women face that us guys are clueless about:

I think it comes down to the woman being willing to have several different carry options. By several, I mean, every option. Women have such a larger amount of outfit types than guys do. I carry 4 or 5 different ways. A woman should have, maybe 7-10 different options from pocket, thigh, belly band, IWB, OWB, ankle, shoulder rig, etc. And this costs MONEY!!!!

I do NOT suggest a purse.

I agree with you ^^ on the fact women have more options. I took my cousin holster shopping and we spent 2 hours trying out different methods for her to carry. What was nice was the owner of the shop let her bring her guns in with her unloaded of course and try the holsters out on her body. She ended up buying 3 different holsters 1 iwb, shoulder holster, and a ankle holster. She is planning on getting a pocket holster and wait till i tell her about the thigh holster she prolly will want one of those too.

The bra holster idea is cool but I have yet to find one that would hold the XD 9 your wife is considering carrying. I found that my rather large chest got in the way while trying to unholster my gun from a shoulder holster besides summers in Utah get warm can't be wearing a jacket all the time. My latest endeavor has been to carry it on my stomach just below my rib cage. I went to Wal Mart and bought a corsette type spandex thing sewed a pocket onto the back of it and carry it there. the downside to this is you can see the imprint through my tighter t-shirts. but since I mostly wear dresses and button up shirts I don't worry too much about it. I also will wear a thigh holster with my tighter dresses... Just some thoughts.

I am tired of collecting holsters for the wife too. She has a IWB that I made for her that she will on special occasions wear. Other than that she carries in her pocket book which I hate. Her jeans are too tight for most IWB and she says her dresses are too short for a thigh rig while sitting, some shorts have enough pocket room most do not, fanny packs are out period, the flash bang got my attention not too sure it will hers, OWB at 4o'clock seems to work good at times. Trying to get her to look at a belly band is not going over well, so I am running out of ideas to get her weapon out of her pocket book, as she sets it down every chance she gets.

I am looking for good suggestions from the ladies who carry, what works good for you and your body type. My wife is 5'10" and around 140-150lbs. (she is gonna kill me) and carries a Bersa Thunder CC .380 8+1
