Pistol packin’ mama

June 7, 2012

These bras pack a bang.

LONDON: Thanks to an ingenious design by a law enforcement supplier from Oklahoma, a bra fitted with a gun holster is now on sale.

The Flashbang bra is attached with a thermoplastic shell that is able to store one of more than 20 hand gun styles already on the market.

Lisa Looper, owner of Looper Law Enforcement, which is a company that produces “concealed carry gear”, came up with the design to give her the ability to defend herself “at a moment’s notice”.

The bra offers a modern day take on traditional female self-defence systems such as the garter belt holster made popular in the American Old Western films of the early forties.

“I really never intended to create a holster line,” the Daily Mail quoted Looper as telling ABC. “That was never something that I wanted to do. I just did this for myself but, as I was talking to other women, they were like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is great, I have the same problem.’”—Agencies
