Armpit Carry?


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 [email protected] for a testing and evaluation sample. That is all. For now.

    Ask Mikeb302000 if it’s OK with him to have this discussion. He’s self appointed conscience of our group.

    Did you just solicit people to send you…. Never mind, I’m not going there. 😉

    so you just move where you potently shot yourself from the chest to the arm/shoulder or what innocent bystandard you shoot from the guy standing next to you to the guy behind you, how is this better.

      How is this much different from a shoulder holster?

    I know a few fat guys that could make this work for them.

    Her tag says that she lives in Puyallup (sounds like pile-up) Washington. Why are there so many um interesting kooky people and things originating in the state of Washington? I’m waiting for someone to design dual high capacity semi-autos that are masquerading as a bra and boobs. The guns could be fired by a miniature remote controlled trigger system. Only for flat chested women.

      “Sounds like pile-up”? No it doesn’t. Pew-al-lup.

      Anyway, we’re ingenious people up here. So ingenious we went back in time and did this in the ’60s.

        +1, though I never pronounce it quite right, either.

        1. avatar CarlosT says:

          Could be worse. She could be from Sequim (hint: it’s only one syllable) or Steilacoom.

  6. avatar Coyote Gray says:

    This young lady needs to keep eye on that dark spot. Could be melonma.

    Or barrel singe from the last time she fired and slipped her pistol back into that holster.

    1. avatar Charles says:

      “Could be melanoma.’

      I noticed that,too.

      1. avatar Sutton says:

        +1. Only reason I clicked through was to comment on that. No, really.

  7. avatar DonWorsham says:

    So, is that holster just sitting in there or is it attached?

    1. avatar CarlosT says:

      It looks like it has a clip.

  8. avatar GS650G says:

    Coping a feel just got a little riskier.

    My armpits are deadly without a gun. Or so my daughter told me.
