Now this is interesting. A woman in Roanoke, VA has invented what she is calling the Apron Gun Holster. It is a double-layered apron with two pockets – right and left – for your compact pistol.
A video report on this holster by WDBJ-7 Roanoke can be seen here.
Eliane Coleman Niemann has owned The Health Shelf, a full service herbal wellness center, for 18 years. She got quite a scare one day in 2009 and thought she was going to be robbed. Nothing happened, but an idea was born. It’s called the Apron Gun Holster.
“I didn’t want my customers to come into a health store and be talking to me about their health, and I’m doing reflexology on their feet and then seeing a pistol on my side,” said Niemann.
What makes this story doubly interesting is that Ms. Niemann is both a concealed carry permit holder and an African-American. If one listened to black politicians such as Jesse Jackson Sr., this woman doesn’t exist but she most certainly does.
According to her website, the Apron Gun Holster is available for both men and women. She will also do custom ones in leather and other fabrics.
While I prefer to carry on the strong side, I do see her point especially given that she works in alternative health. I hope she does well with this.
