    Shoulder Rig for a Wife

    My wife hates carrying a purse and she is interested in going to a shoulder rig for her pistol. I would like to surprise her and would like to hear from the ladies out there about a good shoulder rig for a lady as well as how to measure for one; who you recommend for the rig as well...Thanks for the help in advance.
    When guns are outlawed only criminals and the government will have them and at that time I will see very little difference in either!

    My wife and her buddies like this one. She carries her Walther CCP with very little noticeable print The Well Armed Wonan is where she got it

    I was wondering if the Miami classic would fit a woman's proportions?

    My wife has a large bust and has never been able to work out a shoulder rig. Women also tend to have shorter torsos than man so there is just less room. A lot of it has do to with preferred apparel, too. If you wife is into suit jackets then she'll have no problem. But otherwise it may be challenging. The only place my wife will consistently carry is in her purse or just stuffing it into her pocket (she carries a S&W 638...I wouldn't recommend this is an pistol).

    Looking at the title of this post....I don't think my wife would fit in a shoulder holster. She would be a bit heavy and uncomfortable.

    We have a lady here that teaches concealed carry classes. She carries her pistol in a rig that attaches to her bra beside her boob. Obviously, I didn't get a good look at the setup so I can't describe it well.
    There was no print whatsoever and she is not a large breasted woman.
    Sorry that I can't remember what brand it was.
    If she starts scratching her armpit or boob, you need to look out.

    Sorry, no help with a shoulder rig. Wife most commonly carries in a bra holster. Hides so well that even the grandchildren have never discovered it.

    I wonder if that would work with women with smaller bust size or stature. You think the holster would print more not blending in as well?

    Just a thought. My wife recently bought a S&W Shield 9mm EZ racker. So I bought her a Cross Breed appendix carry holster and she likes it!! She carries without me having to nag her. Never thought I'd live to see the day.

    If you duplicated that under the other boob then one wouldn't think holster just nature and normal sagging.
