The Flashbang bra holster has definitely changed the way women carry their guns!
How does it secure the gun?
The Flashbang is a thermo-plastic, molded clamshell that 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.
How do you draw from it?
To draw the gun, use your weak-side hand to pull the hem of your shirt away from your body. Then pull straight down on the firearm with your shooting hand. Because of the way the Flashbang holster is made, the trigger guard is fully covered until the gun is pulled away from the body while at the same time allowing a full combat grip on the firearm. This technique also presents the attacker with a major distraction while allowing you to access and utilize your firearm.
What about different bra sizes?
The Flashbang bra holster comes with three straps of different lengths to accommodate the majority of bras. Each strap has a directional snap that allows you to quickly put the holster on and take it off, but prevents the holster from being forcibly removed or accidentally knocked loose.
Is it concealable?
Because the gun actually rests partially inside the bra cup, the only portion that's visible is the grip. Although a larger bust line improves concealment, a looser shirt with a pattern on it or a bit of fullness can help a woman with a more athletic physique to conceal the firearm. Some bras may also work better than others, which is why the different strap sizes are included, so you can use the one that fits your bra style best. The straps can be easily changed using a Phillips head screwdriver. As with all holster options, whether this type of holster works for you, your circumstances or your body composition or size, is a personal decision.
What about Colored straps?
Your Flashbang bra holster comes with a set of 3 tan-colored straps. You have the option to add colored straps, a pack of 3 different sizes in the following colors: red, pink, black, teal, lime and purple. Get colored straps here.
Left-Hand Draw models: Most left-hand draws are special orders, and may take up to 4 weeks to ship. As soon as your order ships, you will receive an email with tracking number (if you add other items to your order, all items will ship together when your holster is ready).
Out of stock models: We try to keep most right-hand Flashbang models in stock. If your model is out of stock, it will be marked as such in the options drop-down list - you can still place your order, just understand that it may ship within a day or two if inventory is received, or it could take up to 4 weeks to ship. If you add other items to your order, they will all ship together.
There's a reason we added these videos :) This is great info - watch them before you start using your holster!

Frequently Asked Questions/Tips & Tricks!
I don't see my firearm model listed. Can it fit into another holster model?
Unfortunately, no. While some firearms from the same or different manufacturers may appear the same, the holsters are molded for the exact firearm you will be carrying.
Can you make a custom holster for me?
My Flashbang Holster is "riding low" and doesn't stay in place. How can this be resolved?
Please watch the videos under the "Video" tab to see how you can either "high carry" or "low carry".
The snap on my holster is hard to unsnap. How can I resolve this?
The safety snaps on the holsters are directional to keep them from ever coming undone accidentally. They can be a little tricky, especially when new. They do loosen up, so work them a few times. if necessary, use a screw driver to pry on the tab end at first. Make sure you watch the "Snap Tutorial" under the videos tab!
