Active CCW Options – Pistol Wear Holster
As a runner, the Pistol Wear holster caught my eye while I was at SHOT Show 2013. Concealing can already be somewhat of a challenge as a young adult female (our fashions aren’t exactly known for being practical – case in point: skinny jeans).
Clothing that is comfortable to work out in has only added to that challenge. Up until this point, I simply hadn’t found a way to effectively carry my concealed pistol (and permit with ID) when I ran. Not surprisingly, the activity is too much to keep a CCW handgun in place with the fabric holsters I’ve tried. And, not wearing a belt prevents effectively using IWB holsters that rely on belt clips, such as my Crossbreed Super Tuck Deluxe (my go-to holster for most days).
The Pistol Wear holster meets that combination of specific characteristics that fitness enthusiast concealed carriers, like myself, require from an active wear holster. The fabric is a laminated material that is comfortable against the skin, but also has a perspiration barrier to protect the firearm it holds from sweat. The wearer can adjust the holster through its large velcro strap, but it also has snaps for easy removal.
In particular, the PT-2 Pistol Wear holster is an option that females might prefer, in part because of its smaller size, but also due to its multiple carry position functionality. The PT-2 is ambidextrous, and allows for rear or front carry, as required by the wearer.
An attractive element to the Pistol Wear holster variants is in their functionality for activewear carry, but also in their price: they can be acquired for about $40. How do you think a holster like the Pistol Wear holster would work for your active wear needs?
