This is Bane's wife. I have been thinking about concealed carrying for a little while now but I'm not sure how I would be able to since I wear well fitting business clothes most of the time. I'm thinking about getting the KelTec P32 gun which is really small but I need a good way to hide the gun comfortably still that won't show in my work clothes. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm thinking that a thigh holster would be good for when I wear skirts and an ankle holster for pants. Does anyone have any suggestions for good rigs like these for the P32?

Thank you!
Daisy

Hi Bane's wife! Welcome to our forum, albeit through Bane's login... :lol:

Please feel free to join our forum yourself. We always appreciate more women members here. It helps to civilize us a bit more...

My wife carries a KelTec P32 in a SmartCarry holster. It fits inside her slacks or skirt. Those holsters come in denim or white.





I actually bought it for my KelTec P-3AT. As soon as she saw the holster, it was hers. <sigh>

It was a good thing that I had bought two ... one for the small KelTec and one that fits my Glock 27 just fine. In fact, I wear my SmartCarry holster 4 days a week (Friday is casual day and then I carry IWB with a casual over-shirt).

Once again, please feel free to join our forum yourself. :D

Another resource is Paxton Quigley.

I have never been a fan of off body carry. The P32 is not a large firearm and should make it easier to conceal. However, most holsters have a much larger selection for males than females. Because of this reality you'll go through a bit more trial and error finding what works for you.

What I have heard typically works for females are;

  • Appendix carry (IWB over the appendix)[/*]
  • Thigh or garter holsters.[/*]
  • High belly band below your chest. Don't mean to be crude, but if you have a large pair of "brass catchers" you could wear a belly band up high and have the firearm positioned below your chest.[/*]
  • Bra holster (don't know if this is a myth or not).[/*]
  • Undershirt holster.[/*]
  • Smartcarry[/*]
  • Pager/cell pal[/*]
  • Pocket carry (quite feasible with your small .32 and .380 ACP pistols)[/*]
  • Shoulder holster if you wear a jacket.[/*]

Because of the wider hips of female anatomy, IWB carry behind the hip typically doesn't work. It causes bad printing or the grip or tang jabs into the waist or under the ribs. Holster spacers are quite popular with uniformed female LEOs and security personnel who carry openly because of this anotomical fact.

I use the term "brass catchers" because the upper female torso tends to catch brass. I also warn my female students to button up their tops all the way or wear something that protects the area from hot brass. There have been documented occurrances of female shooters having negligent discharges from catching hot brass down their top and dancing around with their finger on the trigger trying to get the hot brass out. There was one news article of it happening to a Texan recently at an indoor range.
