Video: Concealed Carry Guns For Women


Check out what's on the market when it comes to light and compact carry guns for women.

Often times, women require a different setup when they go armed. The most obvious is the holster and where they situate it, given clothing and body shape differences. But the type of handgun chosen can also be among the issues that need addressing. However, like any shooter, there’s a simple solution to finding the right heater.

Picking the best firearm for your needs requires, above all, a solid evaluation of skills and lifestyle. Many first-time shooters — be they women or men — believe a light and compact pistol or revolver is the logical choice. In reality, it could potentially prove problematic. Featherweight guns are known for generating more recoil and, due to their short sight radius, can be more difficult to aim accurately. The flip side, a full-sized option is plum hard to conceal, not to mention carry. If it proves too difficult to tote every day, many will throw up their hands and leave it a home, where it won’t do a lick of good in a self-defense situation.

Perhaps among the easiest — not to mention enjoyable — ways to winnow down the selection process is to find a range that rents guns. Nothing beats hands-on testing of a firearm for forming an opinion about what fits your ability and, potentially carry regime.
