Fobus SP11 Paddle Holster Review

  By Linda Gilbertson I’m always looking for women’s concealed carry holsters that can be worn on the waist without a belt. Women, with rare exception, do not wear belts and in many women’s clothing styles there are no belt loops. Finding a means to carry a holster whether …
