    So, I've picked out the gun I want when the houses closes.
    Where do I go after that? Besides actually buying the Charter Arms Pink Lady .38?

    Also, I have a saddle bags like this and would like to put a holster in the lunch side.... Any ideas? cashel-lunch-bag-and-bottle-holder-saddle-bag-sb-hb-lbbh-92.jpg

    @tuckerd1 may have some Ideas?​

    Not sure what your employment situation is but the important thing is to have this rig close at hand at a moments notice. I'm presently involved with trying to find my wife a way to carry her Ruger LCR concealed and I must admit it is a challenge for you ladies. The other problem is my wife is a fashionista and that has to come first; can't mess up the look! Good luck, Rae!

    I'll have it in my saddle bags and on my person. I don't carry a purse all the time...
    I'm out on the ranch a lot....

    If your wife has a thin purse strap, the extra weight can be a sore spot when she is out and about from the weight.

    The most important thing to remember about buying most anything does it fit and can you afford the price?
    I think the weapon will be a fine choice and will serve you for many years. Have you shot this or a weapon similar to it?
    I am not a big fan of carrying a weapon off the body.
    The bag can be snatched and or forgotten big problem either way.

    The best of Luck

    Having it in a saddle bag would only be while I'm riding....
    Most of the time have it on my person....

    I'm not a fan of over the shoulder purse carry because it's too much of an easy target. There is a clip on ASP on you tube if you can find it that shows a petite Asian lady who has her purse snatched from her shoulder but refused to let go ( or couldn't, the strap appears to be wrapped around her arm) and gets drug to the getaway car and run over and killed with her arm still wrapped in the purse strap. It is shocking to watch but a good lesson for women, gun or no gun.

    Why not pull up some on-line catalogs from the major holster manufacturers? That'd give you a pretty good idea of what's out there. Many of the on-line catalogs ask you to enter the make, model, barrel length etc., and they'll display all the products that apply - save you some page turning. Whatever you do, please don't even think about ankle holsters - they only work in the movies, and even then not all that often.

    I'm going to talk a situation first.
    You are riding down a road or trail and a crook jumps out to grab your horse's reins. Your horse spooks and you hit the ground. You are still conscious. Where is your gun? It better be on your body or you could be in big trouble.

    Rae, try to decide which holster is best for you. Saddle bags are not for self defense. Just my opinion.

    Just a thought - if you wait 'till you leave the PRC, you'll have 10x the choices available to you there.;)

    In my quest for a concealment solution for my wife I came across a holster that clips to the bra and the gun hangs upside down under the blouse. Looked uncomfortable to me but I showed it to my wife anyway. She looked at me like I had a bolt loose somewhere. End of that device.
