Printing, but not the way you think.

I've been carrying in my CanCan holster, but I'm really short waisted, so I have to carry at 12:00 otherwise the gun jabs into my thigh.

Anyway, I've had three children vaginally and I'm on the backside of my forties, so sneezing is always an adventure.

You know ... sneeze and pee, sneeze and pee.

Really the only way to keep from peeing is to squeeze my legs really tight and lean forward a touch when I sneeze. It's a maneuver I've pretty much perfected.

So last night, I get home and I'm walking into the house when I feel a sneeze come on, so I assume the position: legs clamped tight, bent a bit at the waist.

And then I sneezed.

Holy mother of God, it wasn't a little sneeze like I was prepared for, it was a sneeze from my f*cking toes. My abdomen tightened up and I doubled over with the sneeze. In doing so, the muzzle of my Glock *slammed* into my pelvic bone.

Like, SLAMMED into my pelvic bone.

I now have a muzzle-shaped bruise just above my hooha.

CanCan Concealment Hip Hugger

I've been wearing a Flashbang Bra holster for several months now and loved it. Of course, there was a breaking-in period where we had to get to know each other, but for the most part I've been exceptionally happy with my Flashbang.

Back in April/May, I had a lot of dental work done, which resulted in some weight loss. Because of this, my bras no longer fit, so what did I do?

Instead of buying new bras to continue to carry my Flashbang, I decided to give the Hip Hugger a try. I'd tried it (briefly) once before, when I was trying to decide how I was going to carry at work, but it didn't work for me at the time. With the loss of a few pounds, I thought I'd try it again.

It's been a week now that I've been wearing my Hip Hugger instead of the Flashbang and it's going well. I'm fairly short-waisted, so the first day was spend trying to find the "sweet spot" to carry my gun comfortably. I have to carry my gun at 12 o'clock to be comfortable, otherwise when I sit down the barrel of the gun jabs into my thigh. The advantage that the Hip Hugger has over the Flashbang is that I can carry an extra magazine fairly easily. The advantage that the Flashbang has over the Hip Hugger is that it's a kydex holster, which I feels secures my gun a bit better.

I've been using "fitted" holsters for so long that it is weird to just slip my gun into a cloth pocket, no matter how well made. I would love to have a kydex insert fitted to the G42 that I could attach inside the Hip Hugger's pocket, then I think I'd have the best of both worlds.

I like the freedom of having different carry options for my gun and I think I've finally hit upon the right combination of holsters. I have a kydex OWB for when I can venture forth in jeans and a belt; the Flashbang as an option for work; and the Hip Hugger as an alternative option for work.
