Many of you remember my review on the Flashbang Holster from Looper Law Enforcement. If you haven't read it, you can here.
I recently got to tour the workshop where the Flashbang and her new sisters are constructed. I tell you what, the Looper family has something to be proud of and after three generations of hard work, they sure do know what they are doing.
As much as I love the Flashbang, there are sometimes when it is simply not the solution but the Looper family have come up with the answer to those problems too. Over the next few days, I hope to share each of these sweet ladies with you.
Today, as I was wearing a dress, I spent the day with Marilyn. Marilyn is a bra holster, like her big sister, the Flashbang; however, Marilyn rides in the side of the bra instead of the front, similar to a shoulder holster. It works for situation when a woman is wearing a sports bra or a dress. Drawing is by reaching into the neckline of the cover garment.
The Marilyn is a Kydex clamshell like the Flashbang, it has a leather retention strap with a safety snap, and a clip to keep it from slipping down into the bra cup. The Marilyn is made to fit to over 20 models and growing all of the time.
You have to find the adjustment of the Marilyn to where it can be concealed, yet easily drawn, but once you do, this holster is an asset to any wardrobe. It conceals completely as you can see in the pictures.
The draw of the Marilyn is fast and easy. I am not as fast with the Marilyn as I am with the Flashbang, but with some practice, I am sure that I will be. It is a simple pull right out of the Kydex clamshell, just like the Flashbang.
The Marilyn is super comfortable. Once it is situated and concealed, you hardly notice it's there. It doesn't slip or move and makes it possible to wear even more styles of clothing and completely conceal a firearm.
The price is super affordable. At around $40 plus shipping, this great little holster fits most any budget. You can order yours at many places including Looper Brand and Bang Bang Boutique.
Several people (mostly men) have asked about safety while holstering and drawing, flagging and more...so I really want to address that. When holstering and drawing, at no point am I flagging myself. I am completely safe at all times and my muzzle direction is at no time what I would consider unsafe. The holster has a full trigger guard, giving me 100% peace of mind that my firearm is safe from UD at all times in the Marilyn holster. The muzzle is pointed at the ground and the trigger is completely covered.
Would I recommend this holster for other women? Absolutely. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here or on my Facebook page. And don't forget to look for reviews for two more Looper brand products in the week to come.
