A National Rifle Association Instructor wants women to know they have options when it comes to carrying a gun.
Experienced NRA instructor, Diane Danielson, from Lancaster, encourages women who carry firearms to know their options. She says, "We need to do what's best for us. It's been such a 'this is what my husband, dad do.' Just like it is a personal choice for which gun to carry."
Her personal favorite, a holster band that wraps around your stomach.
Diane says there's a rise in female fun carriers. Last year in one program alone, she instructed 14,000 new women shooters. As the numbers increase, so do the holster trends, like one that fits beneath your bra.
Although comfortable and hidden, this option isn't always recommended.
Diane says, "Simply because safety issues with carrying in that position, having to manipulate clothing. (It) Has an accessibility problem if you have a tucked in blouse, something that you would have to raise in order to get to that firearm."
No matter where you chose to wear your weapon, Diane says it all comes back to self-protection. "We have a lot of single mothers now, we have women with deployed husbands, widows that realize they need to keep them safe."
