I had a IWB holster that a friend gave me but I didn't like how the retention strap didn't cover where I wanted it to so I bought one that was specifically for my gun, granted it was made for having the laser but the maker said it would still be snug even if I don't have the laser on it. Well, the holster passes all the tests; holds snuggly, I can turn it over and shake it (no the gun isn't loaded) and it doesn't come out, it even sits nice and snuggly on my belt and pants. Sounds great right?
Tonight I realize that I will never be able to carry IWB unless I buy super baggy pants and even then I probably won't be able to. I really don't have a lot of carry options other than when I wear dresses. I can't do the bra holsters because I lack the real estate to properly hide it. I'm dubious of the bellybands so I don't want to spend out that kind of money and unless they make an ankle holster that is sized for a child, that one is out too. I will not ever purse carry, unless of course I can make my own purse that is to my style and liking, I have yet to see a carry purse that was even remotely attractive and not mention, I'm not a fan of off body carry.
I feel a tad disappointed, not giving up though, I'll just continue to wear dresses to carry until I can determine something that does work, even if I have to take leather classes and design my own. I would possibly consider a shoulder holster but I still think I'm just too thin to really hide; I would definitely need a vertical draw one.
On another note, I think going to the range at least once a month is healthy. I had my annual exam and the results was everything is perfect and in the words of my doctor, "Your cholesterol levels are brag-able."
I haven't had much to post about lately. Kathy Jackson is coming to Colorado again for a two day pistol class and also a gun retention class. Sadly, I won't be able to do it this time either, if only I was independently wealthy, didn't need a new driveway, A/C and a back fence. Maybe next time....
