Back in May we featured a video that showed a female shooter deploying a concealed pistol from a holster carried in her bra.
Remember the Flashbang Bra Holster? Well, Natalie of Girls Guide to Guns wrote a very nice, very candid review of said holster, hitting about every point we could think of that might count against it (being serious here, not making obligatory boob jokes yet). If you are a female shooter that carries concealed, you might very well want to look into this. We like this girl. She has a great sense of humor and obviously knows what she’s talking about.
To get this out of the way: no, you will not see any delightfully jiggly naughty bits if a girl goes to drag iron on you. Frankly, it that happens you may have something else entirely to worry about.
Here’s an excerpt:
“Another concern I had was whether the Flashbang would work with tight shirts. Before using the holster I thought the expectation that I could hide a gun between the bazooms was completely unrealistic. There would have to be some give away, right? So I tested it. Boldly. After receiving a total of zero awkward comments from friends about that thing hiding in my rack, I concluded that I was in the clear. Boyfriend later confirmed that fact when I asked him specifically if he had noticed anything odd in the aforementioned location…Now that I had the visibility question answered, it was time for the trickiest of the concealed tests. I wanted to know if the gun would reveal it’s placement when I hugged someone. After eating lunch one day with my friend, Scott, I decided it was time to find out. As we said goodbye I intentionally gave him a big old full-frontal hug. “Did you feel it?” I asked. “Feel what?” he responded. Question answered. Thanks, Scott. Bless his heart, he’s probably still scratching his head about that one.
Some of our readers have inquired as to how these things work for my sidearm sisters who are a bit smaller chested than myself. I wanted to be sure that my A and B cup friends don’t feel left out so I asked a B cup friend of mine to try it on and see what she thought. She had on a pretty fitted top and we were both impressed by the fact that the Flashbang was just as discreet on her as it is on me. Incidentally, who ever thought a firearms product test would include staring at eachother’s boobs? I can’t help but think that somewhere out there Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are finding this hilarious…”
