Last year, we shared Lisa Looper’s Flashbang Bra Holster with the group. According to the product’s tagline, “nothing comes between a girl and her gun” (in this case there’s no room). Despite out prurient interest, or because of it, we had a close look at the system—and filed it under What Could Possibly Go Wrong. (If the first rule of a gun fight is “have a gun,” the second is “get it in your hand in short order and aim it at the aggressor without shooting yourself or anyone else who doesn’t need shooting.”) I ran into the ever-affable Ms. Looper at SHOT. She agreed: the Flashbang Bra viral video was lacking in the safety department. The technique not the system. Be that as it may, she’s devised a better bra holster . . .
I forget what the Divine Miss L calls the new holster (for some reason). But I reckon the armpit carry concept is a better option for women than the underwired undercover bra holster. Emergency access is significantly quicker and easier—although it’s still a two-handed process.
Unfortunately, as Looper readily acknowledged, flat-chested woman need not apply. However, if there’s a female member of our Armed Intelligentsia (or Significant Other attached to same) with the necessary physique (not to mention training, caution and courage) they should apply at firstname.lastname@example.org for a testing and evaluation sample. That is all. For now.
