You get your normal grip then put your thumb over the backplate of the slide and apply pressure. It prevents the slide from recoiling so you need to manually cycle afterwords but it allows for contact shots.

I'm thinking that'd be too much for me to be thinking about in a self defense situation. I'm looking for point and shoot. And comfortable carry.

Contact shots? Who are you and why would you ever recommend something like that? If your thumb lives through that, the gun will likely jam.

This thread is getting a little stale, but I'll keep on keeping on...

Like a few other gals on this forum, I don't recommend purse carry. I speak from personal experience when I say they are too easily 'snatched'. Well, I didn't make it easy for my attacker and fought him for it (not that smart), and even chased him in my high heels. But in the end, he got my purse.

Women's pants are woefully lacking in the pocket department so I often carry IWB with a blouse-over. There is no question that a lady will have to dress around the gun - at least to an extent. Because of that, I carry one of the smallest (and still effective) autos - a Kahr PM-9. Conceals better than any Glock, just by virtue of its smaller size.

Alternatives?

Slightly off-topic, but related;
I've been working on a solution to this problem with my wife also. Problem is that she only carries a purse to/from work. Not while at home, shopping, socially, etc. She prefers her little 3" J frame revolver for sessions on paper, but is also competent in the use of the Bodyguard .380.
Potential solution we've been looking at is something called the Flashbang holster, clipped to the front of your bra.
Anyone have any experience or input?

Once I realized (and accepted) that my wife was NEVER going to carry in a waist holster I did the next best thing and bought her two, kidney-shaped, under-the-shoulder, 'high security' handbags. Then I taught her how to securely hold onto and use one correctly. True, it's not a perfect solution; but it's still a lot better than the way most of her friends carry their pistols around in handheld pocketbooks.

Iím so sorry for you.

What do you expect when you give anyone a G19 to try though?

Notice the common attributes those ladies in the pictures have. Not every woman is built the same, thus it will not work the same for us all. She would need enough of a bust to separate the shirt from the torso so the firearm remains unnoticed. If she doesnít have enough of a bust, even on a shirt that is not tight at all, youíll still be able to see the outline of a small pistol, more so with a revolver due to the cylinder. Many women who donít have much of a bust wear their bras rather loose, the weight of a pistol or a revolver pulling on the center would require it be worn tight around the body.

Notice the lady on the video, medium to large bust, very small pistol. That is about the only way that kind of holster will work (no clue if it is comfortable). Some women can manage to hide just about anything in their bra, some of us would be lucky to manage to hide a driverís license without it being noticed. As with any form of carry, if that one suits her, sheíll have to practice drawing often.

Itís all about compromise and learning what works for each person. A purse with the shoulder strap worn across the chest, which one decides to not take off regardless of where one is, could be a good compromise. Iíve extended the strap on my fanny pack a couple of times and worn it that way. Iíve been carrying two filled G17 mags, plus a small knife, plus a small flashlight, plus a few other necessities. The weight can get unbearable when worn around the waist for more than 4 hours standing, I had to find an alternate solution that worked.

"Iím so sorry for you.

Let you in on a secret, she reacted just the way I hoped
she would Been trying for several years to get
her to give up her S&W model 38 Airweight. (Not that I
don't respect the .38. That Airweight was my backup to
my service 45 for years.) I just wanted her to carry
something that was dead reliable and with more fire-
power than a 5 shot 38. She takes care of it herself.
Changes out her mags each week with fresh ones. I've
taught her to break it down and clean it after practice
and reassemble it. She really enjoys the 19 and I
couldn't be happier.

She doesn't like my G26 because of the stubby grip that you can't get all fingers on. But she likes my G17 gen4. So she's been thinking about a G19 gen4 for herself.

Some say just put an extension on the mag of a G26 to get a better grip, but I don't think that really works to well.
Deerslayer, my tongue is firmly in my cheek.

"I'm a man, but my wife is a woman"
You must be so proud!
My wife (also a woman) carries a G26. Her hands are kind of small but still had no place for her pinky. Put the Glock factory + 2 extensions on both mags and the problem is gone. Two more rounds and it adds very little to the overall size. I'm thinkin' about a G26 for me. I now carry a G30.
Please don't get mad at my jokin' around!

The gun will not cycle 100% of the time. It is ment to stop the fight. If you can't impact push someone off of you and draw and fire from a distance I feel 100% confident that the round will fire and if pressed into the body of someone the gasses will do additional damage. If you have a firm pressure on the backplate the action will fire and there will be no slide recoil. I've done it 15-20 times. I learned this technique at a local police academy all of us recruits were equally suspicious until the range master demonstrated it.

If you feel uncomfortable the first time you practice it you can use the palm of your secondary hand to demonstrate the slide will not recoil.

Not mad at all. A 26 is a viable choice, with or without a mag extension. Or for some a longer grip of the 19. So many good choices in guns out there
