Alien Gear Announces Women’s Line of Holsters, Accessories & Clothing – Tactica Defense Fashion.
As a female shooter, I know how hard it can be to find a great holster for concealed carry, open carry and concealment clothing that fits my body and my lifestyle. Most items are designed for and marketed towards men and look it! Usually, I try to make something work but it’s never perfect.
Earlier this week, I was so excited to see the announcement of a women-specific line of holsters, clothing and accessories from the well-known holster & accessory giant, Alien Gear. The new line, Tactica Defense Fasion, looks amazing and I’m sure you’ll want to check it out too!
What to Wear to the Gun Range – Proper Shooting Attire for Women
The first time I was headed to the gun range it dawned on me that I needed to carefully consider my clothing. I wanted to be protected, follow the range’s clothing rules and be comfortable in what I was wearing.
In addition, I didn’t want to wear what the guys are wearing. I wanted to keep my style while still meeting the requirements for shooting without winding up with a bunch of hot casings flying down my shirt.
What does a women wear shooting or to the gun range? Here are the tips!
The Best Holsters for Women – Tested by Actual Women
If you search the internet for holsters for women you may be overwhelmed by the choices. I know I was! In fact, I ordered quite a few and have been testing them out with my carry pistol and wanted to share them with you!
Many of the articles I’ve found online recommending holsters for women seemed to be collections of products that weren’t actually tested and recommended from women to women and I can’t wait to share my favorites with you!
Trigger Discipline – The Most Important Gun Safety Habit?
If you have spent any time at a gun range, around gun experts or taken a course about guns then you probably have been told about trigger discipline.
There are many very important rules to follow. Don’t point your gun at anyone or anything you don’t want to shoot, all guns should be treated like they’re loaded and pointed in a safe direction, know your target and what’s behind it andkeep your finger off of the trigger until you are on your target.

I still have trouble driving down that road today, nearly two years later. A place where I once enjoyed fresh air, sunshine and hearing the pavement under my feet is now a place that brings anxiety as I remember that warm fall day. I’m lucky to be alive, I think to myself.
As a young woman living in the country, I always felt safe. Car doors went unlocked, we knew our neighbors by name and peering over the fence in our yard were the faces of horses and cows. Growing up, I was an avid runner, cyclist and went about my day without spending one moment thinking or feeling as though my life was in danger.
When I first started looking for the best handguns for women, I was overwhelmed. There are so many guns out there! I knew I wanted a pistol for concealed carry for self-defense, I knew I wanted to be comfortable shooting it but beyond that it was difficult.
I asked friends, family, and a few people at the local gun range to recommend a pistol. However, what other people think is the best gun for a woman is…and what actually turned out to be my personal favorite was way off.
I’ve spent the past year and a half or so testing and shooting pistols for women and want to share my favorites with you!
