Bravo for the Ladies!
What a wonderful thing to see so many women today asserting their willingness to assume responsibility for their safety and that of loved ones by developing the skills necessary to take up arms and be prepared if and when the need arises.
History Shows Women Are Better Marksmen
It has long been a demonstrable fact that females exhibit much better skills with firearms than their male counterparts; hence, it is important to determine what is the most effective concealed carry holsters for women.
Consider in the photo above, one Belle Starr, known throughout all of Arkansas and other parts for her skill at arms and, obviously the size of her sidearm. I can assure you, considering the look on her face, I certainly wouldn’t want to get on her bad side.
Can I offer YOU any advice in the matter?
Nevertheless, as a male writing for females, I had to consider whether or not I was the best person to write an introduction concerning concealed carry holsters for women. Since you are reading this, you may assume that, at least for the present time, I couldn’t find enough reasons why I shouldn’t or I couldn’t find a female willing to write it for me.
Other than my experience in my local church, I have very little experience wearing dress-like garments; however, today it has to be observed that many women do not either. (So, if you are a female not inclined to dresses or pant suits and are much more comfortable in khakis and plaid shirts, feel free to consider all of the options I will be discussing with the men.) Of course, I am aware that there are professional women who routinely wear a skirt as part of their daily attire. Fact is, I am not so much concerned with the type of garments worn by women as much as the color and fabric types. Men generally wear darker and heaver fabrics then women do. I can’t tell you the last time I wore a sheer peach colored top or a pair of fitted pants where the outline of the pocket was clearly visible.
The potential “fatal” mistake…
These issues are often resolved, I fear, by leaving the weapon in the center console or trunk of the car which, in my opinion, is a really big mistake. The other option too often employed by many is to keep the weapon in the purse. But just so you know there are numerous options, consider this option as a possibility…see, you don’t have to dress like old Belle Starr:
I have to admit, as I write, I believe I’ve got my work cut out for me. All I can say is, I have a lovely professional wife and a talented professional daughter…both of whom will, I hope, provide insights for me as I strive to assist you with your concealed carry dilemmas.
