Is Packing Pretty the New faliaphotography?


It’s on like Donkey Kong! Packing Pretty’s concealed carry video for women (above) vs. internet sensation faliaphotography’s previous, much adored version of the same. Now that falia’s invaded Nutnfancy territory, Packing Pretty may soon be sitting pretty. Or will she?

    I’m surprised you didn’t point out the fact that she didn’t show a safety check and that she put her finger on the trigger…you’re slipping bro.

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      Blame it on Rio.

    2. avatar BLX says:

      1. It is a “red gun.” A good looking dummy, the gun, not the girl, so lack of showing clear did not bother me. I suppose she could have mentioned it though.

      2. I saw no finger on the trigger until and only when ready to fire.

      3. The only comment I have is her reholstering. I have seen many shooters go fishing for the opening of the holster with the muzzle and point the gun in at their hips. If you bring it back as she showed, and keep the inside wrist of the gun hand against your body, once past 3 o’clock turn it down, you should find the opening without looking down, AND without pointing it into your body. Index off the side of your body and keep it touching while the gun slips into the holster. Worst case (unless your hips are really wide) you’ll shave off some fat in case of an ND. Keep practicing in front of a mirror, slowly at first and make sure not to add extra movements. Smooth makes fast.

      1. avatar Mark says:

        There is never any reason to holster your weapon without looking.

  2. avatar Tim says:

    Can we act like 13 year olds again?

      1. avatar Tim says:

        Cool – she needs a better tan…

        1. avatar matt says:

          Oh noes, she is too white! Not everyone wants to look like they’re on the jersey shore or mixed.

        2. avatar sdog says:

          yea watch out for those mudbloods….come on man.

  3. avatar sdog says:

    i would put my weight behind faliaphotography’s channel. More interesting and visually appealing videos comparatively.

    1. avatar Tim says:

      She is working on the production aspects – Falia’s earlier videos were rough around the edges too…

    2. avatar Tom says:

      Actually, she puts on a really good video and is very detailed and informative. I think people give her too much flak.
      Yeah, she is very nice looking…I noticed that too.
      I suppose she uses a little sex in the thumbnails, but she actually presents her subject material very well once the video gets going.

      1. avatar HSR47 says:

        Eh; Given the way she’s giving advice, it seems that at the LEAST she doesn’t have sufficient confidence that she’s doing it right to begin with.

        Given my experience, with everything I’ve seen and practiced myself, it would appear that her subconscious is right.

        She may know it well enough to do it *herself* but she doesn’t know it well enough to TEACH OTHERS. Yet.

  4. avatar Adam says:

    I’m not really sure what to make of this post and the one you did on faliaphotography’s video.

    Are you really criticizing women who are passing on what may very well be good information on CC?

    Never mind the overtly sexist tone of your posts and the comments.

    1. avatar Tim says:

      I didn’t notice criticism in his post – perhaps a little snarkiness (and that is par for RF – every article he writes has a bit of it. Or more), but not criticism.

  5. avatar CarlosT says:

    But when will we see Robert’s video on concealed carry in a dress?

    1. It’s a question I try not to ask myself.

      1. avatar Aharon says:

        Maybe you can do a cc video for men who are going to cross dress as witches next Halloween.

        1. avatar HSR47 says:

          What about Kilt-carry?

        2. avatar Tim McNabb says:

          +1 Kilt Carry

          Somebody needs to come up with a great pistol and call it a claymore. I’d carry that under a kilt.

        3. avatar Tony says:

          For kilt carry, wearing a traditional kilt, I have my Keltec PF9 with the belt clip on it. It clips on the inner apron with the butt right behind the belt buckle.

          Wearing a Utilikilt I have a velcro pistol belt with a thigh rig attached under the waist band. My Taurus 24/7 rides in this holster.

        4. avatar CarlosT says:

          If someone makes a gun called the claymore, then I really want it to have “FRONT TOWARD ENEMY” engraved on the trigger guard.

        5. avatar Mr. Bob says:

          In a kilt, I’d definitely have to carry in my Sporran.

  6. avatar Pro libertate says:

    Lots of hypersensititves lurk around these parts, ready to pounce on the first hint of sexism or racism.

    Deep breaths friends

    1. avatar NCG says:

      It ain’t the first hint, it’s more like the 2×4 over the head with some people here. There are plenty of out-there white supremacists on this site, and no lack of misogyny. I’m not so hypersensitive, but I’ll call it like I see it.

      1. avatar Tim says:

        Is Misogy, NY near Albany, NY?

      2. avatar sdog says:

        +10, couldn’t of said better myself NCG.

  7. avatar Phydeaux says:

    Guys, if we’re talking women, guns and YouTube, one must consider LimaLife (

    Like faliaphotography, she also does holster reviews, and more. My current favorite of hers is, Carrying a Gun in a Public Restroom ( Tastefully done and hilarious – and given the number posts I’ve read here on NDs in bathrooms, something we should all watch.

    1. avatar Tim says:

      +100 – she is definitely a standard to follow. She doesn’t try to use the fact that she is a woman and knows her stuff, particularly 1911’s. She hasn’t done much on YouTube lately though.

  8. avatar xpo172 says:

    The jean short thing is actually a good tip for women. Not really what I wanted to see when she pulled up that dress…..but a good tip.

  9. avatar Matt Gregg says:

    A good tip but the video was a let down when I saw those jean shorts.

  10. avatar JOE MATAFOME says:

    I was thinking the same thing XP. I was hoping to see a nice G string or one of these cool Victoria’s Secret getups, but if she’s going to wear shorts then some really nice Daisy Dukes would have done the job. Her draw seems very awkward and difficult to execute, but I guess she has a slight advantage by flashing everyone before they realize that she’s drawing down on them.

    1. avatar Randomhero says:

      She does. Like most of us here, we probably stopped what we were doing in hopes of something sexy like on the draw. Makes for a good distraction. Hell she could do it all nice and slow like and it could actually be more effective.

  11. avatar Mike OFWG says:

    Glad to see this type of video out there, these women are serious and we should treat them that way. Women are the great untapped resource and bulwark against the gun grabbers, they need to be cultivated.

  12. avatar 101abn says:

    If a woman has a gun, I am just going to shut up, and pay attention.

  13. avatar NCG says:

    I do like Thalia better. I also like that Yankeemarshall guy.

    1. avatar sdog says:

      he’s pretty good, i also am a big fan of hickok and the armory channel.

  14. avatar Scott says:

    Lima, Falia and this young lady, provided it’s solid information and/or reasonable opinion, I say more power to them. IMHO they’re furthering the cause of taking responsiblity for one’s personal safety and helping the potential “Damsels in Distress” to slay their own dragons. The fact that they are attractive is beside the point or simply a bonus, however one wants to look at it. Good Day, eh!

  15. avatar ak74fan says:

    another excellent youtube channel is military arms channel (mac). stermgewehre knows his stuff & is very honest in his opinions & most of all no B.S. truly one of the best channels on youtube. check it out.

  16. avatar Ralph says:

    Now I’ve seen it all — fashion hints for the woman who carries. I never knew that firearms could become chic. Yes, it’s a great thing, and more women need to carry, but beware. Today’s fashion-forward accessory is tomorrow’s Nehru jacket.

    1. avatar CarlosT says:

      I can’t remember, did the Nehru come in .45?

  17. avatar Dave says:

    Looks to me like Robert Farago might want to take another look at the reason he started this site. He eluded that the material covered by Packing Pretty was covered previously by falia. Problem is that Packing Pretty’s solution WAS NOT covered on the other site. The only similarity I saw between the two sites was vagina and guns. Could it be that Robert Farago is just trying to spark a controversy with incomplete facts? Or isn’t he?
