It was no easy feat for this writer to dredge through what seemed like miles of booths in search of the best gun gear for girls, but I traded in my heels for flats to bring our readers the standouts in gear, accessories and apparel for women.

Can Can Concealment was nestled in the new products area of SHOT but its little booth was booming with business. The Can Can Hip Hugger is quickly becoming a favorite in the women’s concealed carry holster arena. With four firearm pockets and two magazine pouches it’s easy to see why women are falling for this deep concealment option. The Can Can Hip Hugger retails for $79.99.

5.11 Tactical debuted their Raven Range tactical leggings at SHOT Show to the delight of women who live and breathe the yoga pant trend. 5.11’s crack at the current fad adds a belt loop system for easy concealed carry with an IWB or OWB rig. Flattering and form-fitting, the 5.11 Tactical leggings look stylish both on and off the range. The Raven Range tights and capris are on the higher end of the price scale starting at $89.99.

Rounding out our notable standouts is a company that’s been around for a while but is still dishing out deep concealment options for women. Their best-known product, the Flashbang holster, is a bra style holster that epitomizes deep concealment. Featuring a kydex mold that encases the slide and trigger of a firearm, the holster is secured to the midsection of a bra with a leather loop. The Flashbang has a nice mid-range price point of $49.99.
While few of us ever thought we’d have a blacked-out lever-action hunting rifle on our wish list, here we are with not one, but two. The Marlin Dark series was followed by the Henry X-Model, both American-made levers.
