And don't kid yourself...just because your gun has "retention" does not mean it can not easily be taken from you. If it is THAT hard to grab then it will be THAT hard, most likely, to draw when you need it.
Can you cite one case of a person not in LE having their gun snatched while OCing? Depending on what type of holster you use, they can be very difficult for another person to take your gun from you, while still being very easy to draw from yourself.
No, the guy that was staring at my GUN obviously was interested in the GUN. What else would he be interested in?
Who knows? Maybe he just liked the way you accessorized.
I'm not saying gun grabs are common. But I'm also not saying, considering the number of purses in existence, that purse grabbings are common....by percentages. Of course there are MORE. There are MORE purses than openly carried guns!! LOL
That is why crime statistics are rated on a per capita basis.
If you have 10 murders in a city of 1,000,000 people you have a murder rate of 1 per 100,000. If you have 5 murders in a city of 1,000, you would havea murder rate of 500 per 100,000. Even though 5 is a lower number, it is a much worse rate.
There are thousands of purses stolen every year, how many gun grabs occur (outside of LE)?
I'm just saying if you are THAT concerned about your safety don't wear the dress or maybe put a gun in a purse THAT YOU RETAIN RESPONSIBLY.
That was the whole point of the OP, how to wear the dress and CC in a secure, safe, and comfortablemanner.
To retain the purse securely would mean keeping it slung over your head across your body the entire time the you are carrying your gun. This would include dinner in a restaurant, at the theater for the entire length of the show, andon the dance floor at the club.
This is why it is such a difficult problem, there doesn't seem to be an easy answer. I know that my wife would have a hard time concealing anything extra while wearing her favorite dress. She jokes that she conceals her gun on me. This works OK until she needs to go to the ladies room.
Develop a holster that can be comfortably worn with "that little dress" that she likes so much, without showing that she is armed or appearing to be deformed, and you will make millions.:celebrate
But hopefully you aren't going to be wearing any dresses or purses any time real soon anyways.......
Not to worry, I don't have thefigure to pull it off, and I refuse to shave my legs.
Just thinking of the sight of it scares me to death.:what: I'll likely have nightmares for a week.
