Chick Thigh Holster!!

I usually carry in a Crossbred Supertuck and love it, but on those days I wear a dress (mostly summer) I cannot use it and I do NOT like to have my gun stuck somewhere in a purse. So, I decided to get a Thigh holster and went with Chick: Chick Holsters and couldn't be happier. I have been wearing it the last couple of weeks when I go to a dress instead of my usual shorts or jeans.

I was doubtful at first because I had read so many things on the "net" about how uncomfortable they are for "less than super skinny women", but I really don't like not having my CC on my person. I ordered from Chick and they got it to me within a week. Super nice lady and because I "friended" them on facebook, I also got a $5 discount on the holster. It is "cute" with the flower, but that was the first thing I took off, LOL!

I took some pictures before church this morning to share with the other ladies here so you can see a "real life" example of how the holster works with a not so "skinny mini" in a sun dress with not a lot of "extra" material to hide the gun. The holster is "made" to be worn on the outside of the thigh, but I modified mine once it go here to wear on the inside of the right thigh (was not hard to do at all thanks to all the velcro). I carry a LCR .38 so it's not a tiny, tiny pistol to conceal, but this holster does a GREAT job keeping it concealed.

Anyway, pictures:

You can see that I have it high and double strapped. That thing stays where I put it till I take it off and it's not uncomfortable to wear or move around in. I've worn it for the past couple of Sundays in Church, and it's nice to be able to greet and hug people and not have to worry about being sure I turn just right so they don't "feel" a bump at my waist, and not have to lug around a purse since that is the only other option for carry in this type of outfit.

I am a very happy customer between this and my Supertuck, I am good to go anywhere now.

Good on you. I have a similar thigh holster because I'm usually in a Kilt. I just haven't tried to get it to the inner thigh. Glad you found a carry method you like.

YMOS,

:) Would love to see a picture of you in your kilt!!!

I'm sorry but that looks sooooooooooooooooooooo uncomfortable

Not at all. You know what's uncomfortable?? Wearing a bra all day, every day. Uncomfortable is relative to a woman :(

Thanks;
I just sent the weblink to my wife. I would feel a lot better if she would start carrying at church and when she wears a dress.

Thanks Db.
The 1st thing my wife said about the holster was; "What's with the flower? --- I wouldn't want a flower!" (LOL)
The second thing she ask was if it could be worn on the inside of her left thigh. (She's a "righty", and this seems a more logical place to carry.)

Could you go into a bit more detail on how you modified the holster to carry on the inside of the thigh?

Maybe I'll introduce a new line of undergarments that feature a built-in pocket for one's CCW badge.

That's funny because I had a discusion on another thread about a "public breast feeding badge". On rational examination, no practical option was found. The woman in question could,

1- Clip the badge to her shirt, which would be removed durring breastfeeding, thus defeating the purpose.
2- Use one of those belt clip badges holders. This might result in the baby inadvertently covering up the badge depending on their position.
3- Use a public breast feeding sash, similar to those crazy looking CCW sashes worn at the Miss CCW pagent. This is especially problematic for mothers of twins, polygamists, or women with the last name of Duggar because the sash would cover up one breast removing the option to breast feed two babies at the same time. :angry:
4- Use one of the neck chain badge holder thingies and risk having the baby get tangled up in the chain. This could result in the baby getting thrown out with the badge holder. :angry:
5- Ignore the breast feeding badge idea entirely and risk running afoul with the public breast feeding cops, A.K.A sheepdogs.

All in all it is a tough dilemma. :fie:

LOL, yea, the flower is too "hippy" for me too. I am a righty, but like it better on my right thigh butt forward because it takes less reach across my "bra encased chest" and it really is quicker to get to. I will get some pictures later today, but essentially, it has enough velcro in the right places that it's simple to pull off and reset the velcro to change it to an inside thigh carry instead of an outside thigh carry.

Thanks! I'm new to this and wear skirts/ dresses and wasn't coming up with any good ways of carrying. That might work for me.

I teach CC classes and I'm always searching for better ways to carry that I can recommend for the ladies in class. Thank you very much.

I love the look of it but I don't like that its on the outside of the leg. While thats definitely more comfortable many outfits I'd wear wouldn't hide it.
I'm considering this one:

Sadly, Chick Holsters decided to close the business a while back. Nice lady. Before she did she worked with a group of kilted friends to adapt her Chick Holster for men to wear under their kilts. I actually wound up with a double rig for two S&W 5 shot 642 revolvers.

It concealed well, even when sitting in a car. And when in a car there was still very easy access. If confronted by a BG it was easy to turn sideways and slip the far hand under the kilt hem to reach the revolver without being seen. Or the other planned ruse was to feign intense knee pain, fall to the floor clutching my knee, then come up heeled.

I preferred to carry on the outside of my legs. Took a bit of time to rig up. But never printed due to all the pleats of the kilt and being under my wide hips.

Access was no problem when in a hurry, just cupped the hand under the kilt hem like you would a shirt hem.

Basic rig was a velcro waist belt. A drop belt hung from the waist belt and attached to the holster. A wide velcro belt wrapped around the thigh. We kilted guys wound up using two drop belts for more stability.

And, since the wee revolvers were only 5 shot I wound up getting one for each leg. Sometimes wore one, sometimes both. Got away from it due to the complexity of rigging them up.

Haven't tried it, but also figured most any drop thigh holster rig could be set up to be worn under the kilt instead of over the pants.

Urged Chick Holsters to try setting up a booth at a large Highland Games in her area...felt she'd sell a lot. But main focus of the business was sales to women - with the flower on the holster. Sad they aren't in the business anymore.

For the tartan curious - top pic is the Clan Gunn tartan. Bottom two pics are the USMC Leatherneck tartan.

I just tried the link... and they are no longer in business :sad:

I see others that may work, just wish I could see them inperson... like at a gun show maybe?
