Pistol Packing Mamas
My mom got her Concealed Pistol License and is carrying in a purse right now. She is thinking about getting a holster so she can carry on the body. She asked me for advice, and I offered her two suggestions.
Buy from a company that offers a 2 week to 1 month Trial period. If you’re not happy with the Holster, then you can get your money back or try a different holster from the same company. I told her about the Free Trails because one of her objections to buying a holster as she is afraid she will be blowing money on something she won’t like.
Get a Holster made for your specific gun and not something they promise will fit every weapon. Since she has a Smith and Wesson EZ chambered in 380, this leaves her with a lot of options.
I did some quick research and found out CrossBreed Holsters offers a Two Week Trial and Aliengear provides a 30 Day Trail and it looks like DeSantis offers a 30 Day trail minus a 20% restocking fee.
AlienGear ShapeShift Core Carry Pack would give her the option of carrying her Smith and Wesson Shield EZ on strongside IWB, Appendix, or Outside the Waistband in a Paddle Holster. So it’s the most versatile option I found. However, I have no experience with Aliengear. So I don’t know if this is good or junk.
CrossBreed Holsters, which I use for my Shield and my CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical, has three holsters that would work for her gun.
Plus, Both Aliengear and CrossBreed offer Belly Band Holsters as well, so that is another option she may like.

What Holster do you use for concealed carry daily?
What position works best for you?
Ps. I don’t care if you don’t use Aliengear or Crossbreed I want to know what is comfortable for you. I am a man and so what works for me may not work for her. I carry at 4 inside the waistband most of the time.
