    Gun-Toting Women Give Rise To Firearms Fashion Accessories

    Definitely biased article, but it's heartening to know more women are joining the ranks of every day carry.

    There are several reasons women don't openly carry. Many of them simply don't want to draw attention to themselves. Then there's the logistics of actually wearing the gun.

    "Most concealed- and open-carry holsters are made for men," says Carrie Lightfoot, CEO of The Well-Armed Woman, an online store based in Arizona. She says a woman's body shape and size are important considerations when it comes to open or concealed carry.

    "For example, a 32A bust could not conceal a Glock 19 very well – nor would a 42DD or a larger tummy allow for effective cross-draw carry," she says.

    Lightfoot sells bra holsters, concealment leggings, lace waistbands and leopard print gun holders for cars. She says sales are up 130 percent since the summer.

    Still, the vast majority of women don't openly carry. And that means one of the hottest accessories is the concealed-carry purse, which is Kate Woolstenhulme's business. SNIP...

    Heard about it on NPR yesterday. I think it's great and that will continue to change product marketing as a result.
    Life is full of give and take. Give thanks and take nothing for granted!

    Not to mention the strength in numbers of "fairer sex". Getting women involved is key to success.

    This is another ideological quandary for radical feminists.

    Note to manufacturers: Stop the gaudy accessories! Conceal carry + obvious CC purse with rhinestones all over = neon sign. Gun shows are full of this stuff that women just walk right past.

    To add to that, not every woman wants to carry a Barbie-pink bag!

    Personally, I carry a black MaxPedition-type bag, but my firearm is not​ in it.

    Whatever gets them into shooting and carrying, I'm for. Women have a heck of a lot of influence on social norms...don't kid yourselves otherwise.

    There is nothing more attractive looking than a good looking woman packing a good firearm!

    Getting women to start shooting is all good.
