      Need holster advice for the wife

      My wife carries a Sig P239 in her purse. I'd like to get her an outside holster with mag holders for the range. Anyone one know of a good system or company. I'm thinking it should come with belt, some kind of duty holster and mag holders for her four mags.

      Most women will want a lower-riding holster compared to men, since women are typically much higher-waisted than men. Also, the flare of a woman's hips tends to make a high-riding gun pivot inward, pushing the grip into the ribs. This is uncomfortable and very slow to draw from. A low-riding holster with an outward cant works best.

      Since Galco doesn't make the Lady Gunsite holster anymore, my wife went to a Blade-tech holster with the drop adapter. With an Instructor's Belt and double mag pouch, she did fine at our last Front Sight course.

      An inexpensive alternative is the Uncle Mike's Kydex paddle holster. It can be adjusted to sit pretty low. Not perfect, at least on my wife, but acceptable.

      holsters

      I will second what Mike is suggesting. Whatever the brand...it should be an OFFSET model and as low slung as you can find. The offset will move the grip frame far enough away from her body to allow her a firm grip on the weapon and most importantly...allow her to lift the weapon straight up out of that holster, without hitting herself in the ribs or having to lean to the left...in the case of a righthanded shooter....
