The Bra That Could Revolutionize Concealed Carry For Women?
San Antonio Express News ^ | 11/14/2011 | Sarah Smith Barnum

I stumbled upon the Flashbang Bra Holster while browsing the Internet for my first firearm. I had looked at a bunch of sites and, just for the heck of it, I searched “guns for girls”—shamefully hoping I might find something aesthetically pleasing.

The first website I came to was a Girl’s Guide to Guns, which led me to a product review for this contraption. 

As a new hunter—I just passed my test this weekend—I don’t think that I’ll be buying a handgun any time soon, so the Flashbang is currently just a curiosity for me, but the idea of toting a gun around in my bra is certainly intriguing. I may have to get one just to try it out.

Older women in my family used to call that area "The Bank of America" because they stored money or valuables in there when walking in public. Granted, that was a lot more secure before women started dressing like ho's and men hestitated to lay hands on a woman, even in a robbery.

Anyway, access was never a problem. The area is spring-loaded.

you’ve got to undo the bra hook in the back first using only one hand.

If you realize what passes for women’s “shirts” today, they’ll have no trouble.

Now the trouble they will have is that they will no longer be able to wear skin tight clothing. You can’t silhouette the outline of the gun in concealed carry.

Also may backfire. Gives everyone another reason to stare at a woman’s chest.

There is a YouTube video demoing this holster. In a few minutes, an experienced gun owner who had never used the holster before was drawing and firing accurately on a range in a couple of seconds after a few minutes practice.

Basically, you reach up your shirt and pull the gun out of the bottom of the holster. The holster is a compression fit for your particular gun shape that is open on the bottom.

My wife is considering one of these if/when she gets a gun. Better than a purse since that is a "grab and run" target.

The video at the site demonstrates it nicely. I’m considering it as holsters anywhere else have been a bit of a problem for me.

Wear a peasant blouse.

or other loose-fitting un-tucked top where you can just reach underneath the blouse to grab it. But I agree with the prior poster about it potentially being an instant mastectomy kit.

Hmm

After watching the videos, it looks like a pretty good deal, but I am concerned that the shooters left hand may be getting in the line of fire if not very careful.

I suppose it's better than the case of not having a firearm when you need one fast.

By reaching under the shirt. There are videos of accessing and firing a pistol from this holster, its really a holster not a complete bra, the holster secures to the bottom front band of the bra between the cups, in under 3 seconds if memory serves. This was invented by and is being marketed by a woman for concealed carry protection. I was amazed at its concealability under a fairly tight baseball type t-shirt.

You would be surprised at how concealable this is under a t-shirt.

Boys and girls (FYI, I'm a boy), I've been using a rig for many months now that I can use under a T-shirt!

It's very comfortable and as long as you're not in some skin-tight outfit, your piece disappears.

I carry a full-size 1911, my Springfield XD sub-compact or a PF9...all using the same holster. It's a shoulder holster-type rig, but is super light and made of cotton. I can sit, bend over...whatever and the gun stays secure. I live in S. Texas and it's a cast iron you-know-what finding a rig you can carry concealed, not be VERY uncomfortable or have to overdress to wear it.

Look up "kangaroocarry". Or click HERE for a short vid.

Seriously. This thing disappears under almost anything. And I can carry a full sized automatic all day long comfortably.

As far as getting to the gun if you need to...when you need to, you will.

Worth looking at, anyhoo. It's got my recommendation.

Ladies looking to conceal and carry might want to look at designerconcealedcarry.com

I have no pecuniary interest; I just heard their founder interviewed on GunTalk this past Sunday, and thought it interesting.

But I don't want my piece to disappear.

It could be very sweaty and very uncomfortable too, depending on the woman.

I think if I were a gal I’d rather have the concealed carry purse. Women don’t go anywhere without their purse.
