Sheila Earley’s EDC tips: Flashbangs and cross body bags (VIDEO)
By Don Summers
Sheila Earley visits with us today and shares how she likes to approach concealed carry for women. She is a LTC instructor, a NRA instructor, a CCL holder and a Texas Commission of Law Enforcement classroom instructor. Earley and her husband, Judd, have been teaching classes in Texas since 2000.
Earley prefers to have her gun on her rather than in her purse. “If I get pulled away for any reason, I always have my gun with me,” she said. So, she uses what is called a “flashbang” — also called a bra holster. The flashbang snaps into place over small pistols and revolvers. It tucks underneath a bra band, where it is secured in place by both the band itself and a soft suede strap that snaps around the center portion of the bra between the bra cups. The open-bottom design of the holster allows the gun to be drawn simply by pulling straight down on the grip of the gun, while the suede strap keeps the holster securely attached to the bra.
