The Wife's 5' even & can't find a decent holster for her SW 2.5" bbl 66 that is suitable for her use. A high-rise type holster will put the stock up into her armpit.

A lady's torso is much smaller for the same height man & as such is more difficult to properly fit a holster that works.

Any suggestions? She actually likes the cross-draws better (non-CCW).

I think the accessory manufacturers are doing our ladies a great disservice (not to mention that they're 52% of the population) by not offering more products for the fairer sex.

Thanks, Jim. Their website is running a bit slow on my PC tonight. Will dig a bit more 12/22 & see what's up.

Did some looking over the weekend & The Wife liked the Biachi 111 which has the cross-draw option. Thanks for the posts & we'll still be looking. Can never have too much of this stuff.

You might try contacting Mike Benedict at:
