Katherine wins the Mother’s Day giveaway courtesy of Flashbang holsters

Congratulations to Katherine, you are the winner of the Flashbang holster package. Katherine said, “I would love for my Mamma to win this. She began carrying about a year and a half ago. It boosts her confidence. She is such a strong and beautiful woman. I’m so proud of her for making the decision to protect herself. She’s my Mamma Bear, a nurse, a grandmother, and an all-around amazing person.”

The winner is chosen by random.org.

 

The lovely Lisa Looper of Flashbang holsters put together a beautiful purple prize package (say that three times, fast) for us to give away in honor of Mother’s Day. If your mom carries concealed, this is the perfect prize package for her. It’s so cute that we wouldn’t blame you if you kept it for yourself, either. You deserve it!

The Victory Girl holster belt and Ava IWB holster are a perfect combo.

The Victory Girl holster belt and Ava IWB holster are a perfect combo. Winner will receive the belt, holster and tshirt pictured.

Giveaway prize includes:

One Ava inside-the-waistband holster. The Ava is a leather and thermoplastic hybrid holster cut specifically to fit the female body. The holsters clips are strong — to hold the holster in place with or without a belt and can be raised or lowered to create a total of nine different cant/depth combinations. The back piece is also cut down to be smaller than the traditional (made for men) style, so that it can even be worn in the front as an appendix carry or cross draw. Available for left or right handed draw.

Retail price: $59.99

One Victory Girl holster belt. 1.5 inches wide,  the reverse brown finish on this leather belt gives it amazing depth that is perfectly accented with a deep purple suede liner. A brilliant silvertone buckle adds sparkle. Available in sizes XS-2XL.

Retail price: $69.99

Victory Girl

One purple Flashbang tshirt.

Retail price $19.99

To enter, simply leave us a comment below and tell us why you or your mom deserve this prize package. Giveaway winner will be drawn on Saturday, May 11. You won’t have the actual gift in hand on Mother’s Day, but we suggest the winner breaks out the crayons and makes a certificate to give her mom. Mom’s love that kind of thing. 🙂

    Thanks to Lisa Looper for this “fabulous, dahlink” prize! What a super response and remember, if you didn’t win … check out Flashbang’s website, listed above.
    Thanks for playing, everyone!

  • Kelly says: May 11, 2013 at 11:26 am

    I have been trying to find an IWB hoster that I like. I think I might have finally found the solution with the Ava. ai’d love to try it!

  • Megan says: May 11, 2013 at 8:52 am

    I don’t have a holster yet! Just recently got my cc! Would love to win this!!

  • Stacy says: May 10, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    I don’t have a holster yet. Pick me!

  • Derek Webb says: May 10, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    This would be a great gift for my mom! She got her first gun for Christmas and has just applied for her CCW permit. She has been watching hundreds of YouTube videos for holster reviews, and decided the Ava would be perfect for her. When she went to order one, they didn’t have one for her gun.

    For Mother’s Day she went and put a smaller gun on layaway, and she double-checked before she picked it out to be sure that they make this holster for it (a Diamondback DB9). It would be awesome to be able to give this to her for Mother’s Day!

  • Jeff says: May 10, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    I would love to win this so I can give this to my wife who is the mother of our 2 sons. She just got her CCL and has a flasbang bra holster and this would be a fantastic addition to her options for carrying.

  • Jennifer says: May 10, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    My boys are too young to enter me, but I would love to win this!! I am a mom of 2, a student and a full time social worker. I just got my concealed weapon permit and need a good holster and belt, I also love the shirt!!! I spend a good bit of time driving with just me and my boys. This would really make my Mother’s Day!!!! I love flashbang products!!!

  • frankie B says: May 10, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    I would like to win it for myself. i just joined the local chapter of the AG&AG club. i’m psyched to meet all of the ladies and have a great time learning to defend myself and my family. i think i would have a raffle for the shirt, (as purple isn’t my color) and donate the money to an organization for abused women. thank you for the opportunity here and all of the information you share =)

  • Denise Roush says: May 10, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    i want to win this for myself.am a mother of 2 boys(soon to b 3).got my ccw last yr but my husband doesn’t want me to carry b/c of the 2 kids.i am thinking if i have a nice holster to carry it in then he might look at it all differently.so (hopefully)happy mothers day to me.

  • April says: May 10, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    Wow there are so many great stories here of why there mom should win this awesome prize package. I bet it’s going to be hard for them to decide. Good luck to everyone!

  • Vicki Chambers says: May 10, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    I have wanted this purple T-shirt from the moment I first laid eyes on it. I have my flashbang holster and I love the fact that I can carry it and not have to worry about the gun being obvious nor falling out of the old waist band holster that I have. I brag about my flash bang every chance I get and love the confident feeling I have when I am wearing this. Thank you so much for coming up with innovative holsters that are designed for women to carry.

  • Amy Shay says: May 10, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    My Flashbang holster adds the finishing touch to almost every outfit, and Ava would allow me to never be without “my little friend”! This would be my ultimate Mother’s Day and college graduation gift!

  • Denice says: May 10, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    I love to shoot got my CCW last year carry everyday, still looking for a comfortable carry holster. shoot so much got offered a job at a shooting range, became a instructor and I’m now working.teaching others, including women only class to shoot and enjoy guns! Recently got a chance to see a few products of yours at a cornered cat holster class. I really need to get my hands on your products!

  • Rodney says: May 10, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    I would love to win this for my wonderful wife, who is a mother of 3 great boys. She carry’s daily and has been looking at your IWB holsters for her next holster. This is a great looking package and comes in her favorite color.

  • carl says: May 10, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    My wife would look even more drop dead gorgeous with these.

  • Deven Jones says: May 10, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    I have the Flashbang and I would love to have another one of your products! They are real quality, and I have been trying to find a holster that fits me. My husband bought me the same holster he has, but it really doesn’t conceal well on my smaller frame. I like to think I am setting a good example for mydaughter for when she gts old enough to carry her own. 🙂

  • Bekka Valentin says: May 10, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    My mom deserves it, not because she had it rough, or because she did it all on her own, which she did, but because she has been a great mother to me. And continues to still be. Every day I’m grateful that even though life wasn’t perfect, and still isn’t.. At least I know I still have her in the end. So she deserves this cause purple is her middle name, she’ll look good with all that on getting out of her (tinted purple) Corvette, and she’s been a really great mom.

  • Linda Proulx says: May 10, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    My mom is awesome, she is actually the one who turned me on to FLASHBANG HOLSTER. Which I think is very very cool. She has always taught me to be confident and empowered.Thank you for the great product.

  • Ashley Haley says: May 10, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    Hey! I just gave birth to my second daughter and have been eyeing the Ava holster and a new gun belt for when I drop some of this baby weight! I would love to win this give a way and would where ava every day!

    This is an excellent package! Thank you for the opportunity!

  • SKozero says: May 10, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    My twelve year old son says, “You’re awesome! On top of being awesome, you also have to deal with two teenage daughters. Anyone who survives that deserves a great present.”

  • Christie says: May 10, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    My momma really does deserve this and so much more. She struggled to raise us and went without so that we could have what we needed. She is a hillbilly girl but even more important she gave me my first gun and almost every other one since then. She does not do computers at all but saw a Flashbang add and went crazy over them. She is patient and kind and would give you the shirt off her back if you wanted it. There is nobody in this world I love more because she risked her very life to have me and I was not a healthy child. She spends most of her time helping others such as helping with their lawns, animals ect she loves people and never met a stranger but will fiercely protect her own. My mom is the best.

  • Keri says: May 10, 2013 at 1:51 pm

    I am entering this drawing in my Mom’s spirit. When she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, one of the first things she did was to buy me a Glock 19. She wanted to make sure I had protection. We took certification and safety classes together and went target shooting often. She passed away 4 years ago this May 23. I miss her like crazy andam so thankful for everything she taught me.

  • Julie says: May 10, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    I got my Conceal Carry license just yesterday, so I am totally legal now. Woohoo! I have a Ruger .380 LCP that came with a waistband holster where the gun just slips in. Well, let me tell you what I learned. When going to the potty, take the gun out of the holster before pulling down the pants. I didn’t and when I went to sit down the gun fell clear out of the holster on the floor. It scared the wajeebies out of me. Now if I had a Flashbang inside the waistband holster that is molded and the gun snaps into, this would not have happened. That peace of mind is priceless.

  • Loma Gibson says: May 10, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    I have been looking for a holster and belt that would look great! You all have put together a great set!! I just love it!! I have my CHL and have not found one to work for me!!! Would love this!!! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win it!! Who ever does CONGRATS!!!
    I am a proud Mom of a 28 yr old — I am trying to take care of myself as he has moved away but talks to me daily. I am also taking care of both my elderly parents – in their 80’s now… This would be a great help!!!

  • Carol says: May 10, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    What an awesome giveaway.
    I just got my conceal carry license about 2-3 months ago, but haven’t found a good comfortable way to conceal yet. The lack of money has prevented me from trying out different holsters. I guess I need a push to go ahead and start carrying. I am impressed with the giveaway package and feel it might be just what I need to start carrying.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Mariah Rider says: May 10, 2013 at 11:40 am

    My Mom had had it rough, raising 3 kids on her own. She finally has all her ducks in a row, recently got her motorcycle license and is also working on her concealed carry permit. She found a great gun toting guy a couple years ago who likes to take care of her, and does a great job of it! She deserves someone like that after so many years of taking care of herself and her kids on her own. Anyway, my Mom deserves this because she is one Bad Momma!

  • Chelli says: May 10, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Oh this would MAKE my Mother’s Day! Already off work that day for my son’s Baccalaureate, get to spend the whole day with my husband and kids, why not add a little fun to it too!

  • Heather says: May 10, 2013 at 11:31 am

    I had the wonderful opportunity to meet y’all at the NRA convention in Houston. I was so star struck! Lol I bought the flash bang bra holster but wanted them all!! I have a 2 year old daughter and my husband is a firefighter so we are alone a lot so mamma needs to protect her baby! I would love to win this and have the opportunity to wear the Tshirt with pride and pack like a real woman! Thank y’all!

  • Timothy Reid says: May 10, 2013 at 11:25 am

    I have been trying to get my wife to carry, but she don’t think our town is that bad. With this holster and belt maybe it will help get her to carry and today is our anniversary.

  • Deb Medic says: May 10, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Wow! All the comments are great and it would be great if everyone was to win one. You are going to have a tough time deciding on the winner. I would love to win. I am self-employed and work late so I always carry with me. We also live away from the city in the boondocks. We have our own shooting range because we live so far out. We are never very far from our guns! Good luck all!

  • Roberta Hodge says: May 10, 2013 at 11:02 am

    I am a mother of two young children willing to do whatever it takes to keep them safe in this crazy world we live in today. I do not currently have an on oerson holster and woukd live ti remedy that.

  • Bow_Tie says: May 10, 2013 at 10:55 am

    Momma could sport a Rossi 38 Special or a Kel-Tec 38 Subcompac 😉

  • Deanna says: May 10, 2013 at 10:54 am

    My Mom doesn’t shoot although I am taking her shooting next year when she comes here for my graduation. She is afraid of guns (at the moment). But as a good Mom – she is proud of her daughter who loves guns and got her concealed carry permit. That is why I love her so much. Although the holster would go to me, she would still love the shirt and belt. 🙂 It is always a struggle to find ways to carry that don’t print. I often carry in my concealed carry purse but feel much better if I can carry it on my person. Plus – I live in Colorado – sometimes it doesn’t make sense to bring a purse. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mother’s out there!

  • Susan Carter says: May 10, 2013 at 10:52 am

    I’m a mom & grandma (6 granddaughters) and am waiting for my CCP to use my new Flashbang holster. I am doing everything I can to support our right to own and carry guns of our choosing, to include sharing your information about your products. I would be proud to wear all of them including the t-shirt! Thank you for offering the chance to win some awesome gun products!

  • Natasha Sims says: May 10, 2013 at 10:49 am

    Words from my 5 kids (and they say the one on the way says this too)….Because our mom ROCKS!!

  • Nichole C says: May 10, 2013 at 10:43 am

    My mom always takes care of others! This would help her protect herself!!

  • Amy says: May 10, 2013 at 10:41 am

    I’m a faithful Looper law fan.
    I love all your products including the Marilyn and the Betty.
    Your Ava looks well made, durable and comfortable — I’d wear it everyday!
    I am responsible for many people, although, I am not a mother myself.
    I’d wear and use this awesome prize to help protect myself and those close to my family.

  • Tracy says: May 10, 2013 at 10:39 am

    My mom doesn’t own a gun, but I do. I have two teenage boys who shoot competitively and love what they are doing. I recently bought my first gun and am taking a ‘Personal Protection Inside the Home’ NRA course to learn to protect myself and my family as best I can. This package would be great since I am just starting out and have no clue what holster to buy. The Ava seems like it would be great.

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  • Tanya Purvis says: May 10, 2013 at 10:34 am

    I have recently received my concealed carry license. I have encouraged my son’s interest in firearms and he is currently studying different weaponry through history and will present a poster on what he’s learned at the end of the summer. He has enjoyed going shooting with my dad, brother, husband and I. We have always taught him safety and he has ultimate respect for firearms. He also doesn’t have the misguided opinion that “guns are for guys”. He thinks I’m a pretty cool mom with my purple glitter backstrap (Brilliant Backstraps is awesome!) M&P compact 9mm.

  • paige says: May 10, 2013 at 10:29 am

    My mom should win this because she has 3 kids that she had to take care of herself for a long time. It was hard on her to be a single parent. She just turned 30 and she is a little bitty thing. Lol she has had a few pistols since my brother was born in 2008. She has always got us what we needed and has always done for us and this would be the perfect thing that we could do for her. Thank you for this chance to win.

    • paige says: May 10, 2013 at 10:33 am

      Also she found a great guy 2 years ago. Their wedding anniversary is the same day as mothers day.

  • Kaitlyn Summers says: May 10, 2013 at 10:29 am

    My mom really deserves this because she works so hard for us. she takes care of us and teaches us alot. She stays home with us and home schools us. She also works hard to help other women. she helped start a local chapter where we live called a girl and a gun and she lets me help her with it teaching me the nra class and how to be safe so when i’m older I can own my own guns too. She deserves so much and it would mean everything to us to be able to give her this.

  • Robin says: May 10, 2013 at 10:24 am

    Although I would just DIE to have this set up, I’m a bit more selfless since I have no kids, just my fur babies! I would actually love to win this for my boyfriend’s mom as she always carries in her purse and I have told her endless times that it isn’t safe for her due to weak muscles. If anyone should run up and snatch her purse, they would have a free weapon! I want her to safely carry on her person when she is carrying, and this would be perfect! 😀

    I wanted to buy her one, but I am financially unable to right now.

    Also, thanks for having an awesome giveaway!!

  • Shelley Bustamante says: May 10, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I’m about to be a 1st time Momma! My little man will grow up learning to respect firearms and how to properly use them. But until he’s big enough to start training, I will protect him in any/all ways possible. This set would be extremely helpful and would be used daily!

  • Barbara Murchison says: May 10, 2013 at 10:16 am

    What better way for this mom to protect her children!!

  • Donna Smith says: May 10, 2013 at 10:13 am

    I would love to have this. Took my CHL class in February and awaiting my license
    To come in. Saw ya’ll at the Houston NRA convention and wanted to get one for
    my gun but you were sold out!

  • Debbie says: May 10, 2013 at 10:06 am

    I am a substitute Teacher at a private school. I have been talking to my husband for months now in getting a Flash Bang Holster when I go to work. I always say Safety First, and when young children are involved it is very important. I have a 26 year old and a 6 year old. The oldest carries, and my husband and I teach both of our girls the safety in having and being around guns. I would love to own this package for myself, so I can put away my conceal purse and carry on my body. A perfect way to go to school and protect my own children and the school children. Thanks FBB…….

  • Natalie LeVasseur says: May 10, 2013 at 10:05 am

    My dear mother is long gone, but I am the mother of two wonderful adult daughters. I am also an attorney practicing family law, one of the most dangerous areas of the law to practice. I decided after a deadly shooting at our church in July of 2008 that I needed to be armed. If you are not safe in your own church, where can you be safe?

    I got my Tennessee Handgun Carry permit in January, 2009. Since then I have become an instructor at my friend’s school here in Knoxville, Shooting for Women University. I have had the opportunity to work with many wonderful women, each with her own story.

    I would love to win Lisa Looper’s wonderful gear. And it’s PURPLE, not pink!

  • Kim Joyner says: May 10, 2013 at 10:01 am

    My mother who will be 74 in June started shooting this year! We now go to the range together.

  • Kristina Way says: May 10, 2013 at 9:56 am

    I am the proud mommy to 7 wonderful children. I carry concealed, mainly because of my children. I have wanted to try one your belts and the AVA for a while now. The AVA, mainly because you can wear it in the front, where I prefer to carry concealed. I have a special needs son that prefers to be carried so it isn’t always easy to have the gun on my hip when you have a 55 pound boy sitting on it. I have the Betty holster and do love it. But I think the AVA would really work best for me and my situation. Happy Mothers Day to you wonderful ladies.

  • Michelle Slough says: May 10, 2013 at 9:55 am

    My mom deserves this so much. She is such a strong woman who doesn’t get the thanks she deserves! My dad recently had a heart attack and Mom has had to pick up the slack and not only take care of the stuff she normally does, but she now has to carry his burdens as well. She is a strong woman, but knowiing she is safely carrying her Beretta concealed within easy reach would help me worry less.

  • Trudy says: May 10, 2013 at 9:54 am

    I would love to finally have a holster that is made to fit a females body. I just purchased a new handgun for my Mothers Day gift and would love these items to go with it. I’m sure all of the women in my shooting club would love to see them up close and personal
    And would want to get one for themselves too. I am a 17 year breast cancer survivor and I’ve survived that and protecting myself by conceal carrying is another way to survive a lot longer. Thank you for designing for us ladies.

    • Joan Bailes says: May 10, 2013 at 10:07 am

      My mom has passed over, so I would have to keep it should I win. Thank you!

  • Darci Benoit says: May 10, 2013 at 9:52 am

    I deserve/really want this because I am a proud gun carrying mom, wife, daughter, and working woman. I would be proud to wear your holster, shirt and belt. Finding a great concealable holster is hard (until you guys came along!)

  • Crystal says: May 10, 2013 at 9:47 am

    I love my gun she is my perfect match though she is a little big and kind difficult to hide. It would be great to win this so that i could carry her in style as well as comfort. I carry to protect myself for sure but more than that i carry to protect my kids. They are the world to me and i will prtect them with every ounce of my being. thanks.

  • Megan says: May 10, 2013 at 9:44 am

    I would love to win this- I need a holster!

  • Megan says: May 10, 2013 at 9:43 am

    My mom deserves this because she is a beautiful, strong, intelligent woman. She is actually my grandmother, but stepped up when my parents couldn’t care for me and raised me to be able to be a great mommy as well. She has been a teacher for over 30 years, she has devoted her life to helping others. She actually wouldn’t use these, but I will gladly wear all of them in her honor. ;]

  • Brenda Gann says: May 10, 2013 at 9:43 am

    I would love to win this giveaway! I am a new mom of an adopted six year old little girl. I am also a firefighter/EMT and a photographer. My husband also works emergency services, and often it is just me and my little girl home alone. I am a proud conceal carry holder, and will protect my princess at all costs! Being a small business owner, often times puts me in sticky situations, and why not be protected in style? We are teaching our daughter proper gun ownership and shooting, and I want her to know that you can be protected while still being stylish! I love these products, and since we recently adopted our angel, unfortunately mothers day isn’t going to be much this year. This would make my first mothers day perfect!!!

  • Tirisha says: May 10, 2013 at 9:42 am

    I am new to the concealed carry scene and am having a hard time finding a comfortable IWB holster, this would make my Mother’s day! Not to mention, I look good in purple. 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms. You are wonderful!

  • LG says: May 10, 2013 at 9:42 am

    I would love to be the proud owner of these products from Looper Law Enforcement. I purchased my first gun a year ago this coming Monday, May 13, and this would make a pretty cool anniversary gift! I am hoping to purchase another ccw gun soon and the Ava IWB holster would be perfect for the gun I want. 😀

  • Candy Shepherd says: May 10, 2013 at 9:42 am

    I would like to win this for myself. Being the only female in a three male house and 2 male dog house they don’t look at Flashbang stuff. Please oh please let me win. I will even let them give it to me.

  • Chrystal says: May 10, 2013 at 9:40 am

    I deserve this wonderful gift because I conceal carry everyday while I’m taking care of my 3 sons, a household full of pets, my wonderful but equally busy Husband, and still make time to go to the range to practice! Also, I’m really tired of all the awful Mother’s Day gifts I’ve gotten in the past! This does not count the lovely paper flowers and hand made gifts from my sons.

  • Kelly S says: May 10, 2013 at 9:40 am

    I really need this!! I have a gun but no holster or belt. I have two wonderful children that I want to protect when we go out. Hope I win!! This is just what I need! 🙂

  • Megan Berg says: May 10, 2013 at 9:36 am

    I would love to win this for Mothers Day. I’m a mom and a wife and with my husband working long hours, it leaves my daughter and I to do a lot of things on our own including teaching her to shoot. I proudly carry to protect us both!

  • Marijo Taverne says: May 10, 2013 at 9:36 am

    I don’t know that I deserve to win, but I sure would like to. I don’t carry concealed because I haven’t found the best way to do so, with my six little children running around.

  • Marcy Ann says: May 10, 2013 at 9:34 am

    I would love to win this because as very busy mom I’ve been interested in the flashbang holster for some time. I’m constantly on the go and never leave home without my sidearm, this holster looks perfect for whether I’m at one of my kids football/softball games, out shopping, going camping or riding my Harley. I’ve had my CC for several years now and I have yet to find the perfect “fit” holster for me and since I’ve been reading reviews and comments about this holster over many different websites I feel that this is the one for me. It would be great if I could get a chance to win one before buying one so then I can have two!

  • Susan Ervin says: May 10, 2013 at 9:32 am

    As a mother and grandmother I would love to win this for myself. I have been carrying for several years now and would love to try these holsters!

  • Resa Resa says: May 10, 2013 at 9:31 am

    I’m not gonna lie- if I win its for me!! I’m in the process of getting my CHL & this package would be amazing to have won!! I have 3 children & gave birth to the last two at home in my bedroom!! So I’d say that deserves a prize!! :))

  • Fred Bearman says: May 10, 2013 at 9:30 am

    I am so proud of my wife of 32 years, and the mother of our 29-year-old daughter. Not only does she work full-time, excelling at her job, but is going to college full-time (and recently inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, with a 3.9+ GPA), achieving the degree that she has dreamed of for years. But to the point here, she understands the need to take personal responsibility for her safety, and despite having no previous exposure to guns, has taken to gun ownership and shooting like the proverbial duck to water. She has done her homework and class work, and has obtained her CPL (that’s what a concealed carry permit is called in Michigan), and is committed to being a good citizen and carrying 24/7. But it doesn’t stop there, as she knows that with the right comes responsibility, and as such, she knows her weapon inside and out, and practices regularly. I am a lucky guy to have this beautiful woman for my wife, and the mother of our daughter.

  • mom of 5 says: May 10, 2013 at 9:29 am

    This mother’s day is going to be a hard one. I just lost my mom on April 15th to lung cancer. She was only 50. Since then, I’ve stopped smoking because I don’t want my 5 kids to lose me the same way. I’ve also committed myself to being the best mom (and stepmom) I can be. I haven’t been able to talk about this to anyone, not even my husband knows exactly so thanks for letting me vent. I don’t want to be entered in the giveaway, I already have the Ava (and I am waiting on my CHL, they are just finishing up the background check) This holster is beautiful and so well made. Those of you looking at this holster, buy it, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Lisa Neal says: May 10, 2013 at 9:28 am

    I would love to win this awesome combo! I’m still trying to find the perfect holster for my concealed handgun and my AG&AG facilitator says she loves her Ava! It would be awesome to have this extra treat for Mother’s Day! Not a day goes by when I’m working at the range and a lady will ask me what I use for concealed carry because they are looking too.

  • Heather Byerly says: May 10, 2013 at 9:28 am

    I’m another that would love to win for myself since this is one of the belts and the holster I’ve been eyeing! I am a Mother of 4 who’s husband is out of town more often then not and I should be recieving my CHL in the mail any time now!

  • Dawn says: May 10, 2013 at 9:27 am

    When I was young my mother lived in a “no so good” hood. She always carried and slept with one under her spare pillow (single mom). She has moved from the “hood” to the country and is more scared to stay alone in the middle of no where more than in the city. I have been teaching her the does and don’ts of concealment. I will be paying for her CHL for here b-day in June. This gift would top it off. The perfect Mother’s Day gift.

  • Debbie N says: May 10, 2013 at 9:27 am

    Hi, my name is Debbie and I am a 42 year old widowed mother of 4 young children. my husband, a retired officer of the NYPD was killed in the line of duty in 2011 while working for the Deot of transportation here in Tennessee. he was 49. After his death I decided to get my concealed carry permit, because being a single woman, with young children, and living in the sticks, personal protection is your own responsibility. Holsters that are ‘mom friendly’ are basically non exsistent until Flashbang. It has made moms like me able to carry safely, especially around children. I would love to recieve this gift for Mothers Day because I simply cannot afford it otherwise. (kids gotta eat right? LOL) Thank you for designing carry options with women (moms especially) in mind. it gives us confidence, freedom, and security. Happy Mothers Day all you Mommas out there!!!! 🙂

  • Michelle says: May 10, 2013 at 9:25 am

    I’m the mom who’d like to win. My purse is so full. I’d have to dig if I needed my weapon – God forbid. Thank you.

  • Jason Vasconi says: May 10, 2013 at 9:24 am

    My wife is the best mother and wife a person could be. I call her Annie Oakley! her favorite things to do is shoot her gun and cook. I work around a hundred hours a week and she is always there for me when I get frustrated or the kids are acting crazy. She never misses a step. She would absolutely love this gift! The kids and I always have a hard time picking her out anything and I know she would never expect this and she would love it! Her bday was on May 2 and we got her some baking pans. I would love for her to be able to carry on her person instead of in the console of the car.

  • Nancy says: May 10, 2013 at 9:22 am

    This is a great package! It would be great to win as I tend to buy things for my spouse and son rather than myself.

  • Shannon says: May 10, 2013 at 9:21 am

    What a wonderful Mother’s day gift this would make for me! 🙂 Our family is a big supporter of gun carry laws and ownership safety. Our 13 year old daughter has been shooting since she was 10 and one day hopes to compete. Currently I carry in my big bulky purse, which I hate and would love to be able to carry on my person and have it readily available if needed. What a great contest and good luck to everyone!

  • Tina says: May 10, 2013 at 9:20 am

    What a fashionable way for mama bears to protect their cubs!!

  • Jodi Palmer says: May 10, 2013 at 9:19 am

    WOW! I would love this package! Perfect Mother’s Day gift for a CHL Momma!!

  • Charmaine George says: May 10, 2013 at 9:17 am

    I recently purchased my first hand gun and have been looking for a holster that worked for me. I have just stumbled on this site and holsters I would be thrilled to have one of your holsters so I can carry comfortably.

  • Sarah Board says: May 10, 2013 at 9:17 am

    I am a mother of one and devoted wife. One and a half year ago my mother in law passed away and I had to begin taking care of a 73 year old man and a 68 year old man that has never done anything on their own. Not 7 months later my husbands grandmother passed away. I work 40 hours a week at a Gun and Pawn shop, take care of my family and help my newly divorced brother in law take care of his kids. I wasn’t much on guns till my wonderful husband and boss showed me the ins and outs and how to carry safely. My boss turned me on to Flashbang Holsters and I now own 3 and go nowhere with out my gun and holster. I am looking into getting the new line of Flshbang holsters for my husband. Thanks Lisa Looper and Flashbang.

  • Kathy says: May 10, 2013 at 9:15 am

    would love this for myself, a momma of four girls, so I can show my girls I can look good while carrying

  • Katherine says: May 10, 2013 at 9:14 am

    I would love for my Mamma to win this. She began carrying about a year and a half ago. It boosts her confidence. She is such a strong and beautiful woman. I’m so proud of her for making the decision to protect herself. She’s my Mamma Bear, a nurse, a grandmother, and an all-around amazing person.

  • Tammy Lance says: May 10, 2013 at 9:14 am

    I am applying for my concealed and would love to wear this on my inaugural conceal!

  • Kerry Redding says: May 10, 2013 at 9:13 am

    I just gave birth to our third child….naturally…and he weighed 9 lbs. ‘Nuff said.

  • Sherry H says: May 10, 2013 at 9:13 am

    As a mom of one of the BEST teenagers out there, I’d love to win this set of items. I need a new belt, and would wear the t-shirt proudly as I sported the Ava 🙂

  • Jill says: May 10, 2013 at 9:13 am

    I have the Ava and I really think its a great holster. I’d actually love to enter my mom. She only has one holster that i bought for her a few years ago.I think this would be great for her, this set is perfect!

  • Jessie Gray says: May 10, 2013 at 9:12 am

    I would love to win this for my mom. She still hasn’t found the perfect holster in all her years of carrying. Ava seems like it would be a perfect fit!

  • Beth says: May 10, 2013 at 9:10 am

    I would love this to make concealed carry easier. As we all know, different outfits require different holsters and I only have the Flashbang, which isn’t the best choice for dresses. And I love wearing dresses in the summer. More options would make it easier!

  • Ashley Breed says: May 10, 2013 at 9:10 am

    I need this b/c I am an army wife with two small boys that leaves near Killeen, TX. Husband may be leaving soon and even when he is “home” He is often times out in the field and I am left to defend/care for our family by myself.

  • Jan Wegman says: May 10, 2013 at 9:09 am

    I would love to win this package for myself. As the mother of 6 which are now full grown adults that also carry concealed, I have used your products and must say they are excellent.

  • Lanetta Cotton says: May 10, 2013 at 9:09 am

    PiCk Me PiCk Me!! I wish everyone luck on the wonderful Mothers Day giveaway. May God Bless every Mother. With or without a gift just feel Blessed. Give your mom a hug and tell here how much she means to you. I can’t, mine passed 1 year ago. Wish I could spend it with my mom.

  • Kelly McAllister says: May 10, 2013 at 9:08 am

    I would love to carry in style with these accessories! I’m a new CCer and these would definitely be a grand addition!

  • Rebecca Hawks says: May 10, 2013 at 9:08 am

    I’m entering for myself. I’m a mother of 2 girls which I homeschool. I’m actually taking my concealed carry class tomorrow and Sunday. I’ve been wanting to get a holster like this but haven’t been able to find one. Good luck to all.

  • Melissa Snapp says: May 10, 2013 at 9:07 am

    I would like to win this for my mom because she is awesome!!! I just started taking her to the range and she loves it! She was always a little scared but now She’s a pro!

  • Nikki says: May 10, 2013 at 9:07 am

    I’d love to win this prize. As a single mom of 2 little boys I carry every where I go. I don’t feel safe carrying in my purse with the boys and lets face it, all the other holsters are just ugly. They can paint them pink but that doesn’t make them pretty. I absolutely love these holsters and winning one would make me tell everyone about my awesome new holster. Hope to hear I’m the winner!!

  • Kathryn says: May 10, 2013 at 9:06 am

    I have an Ava for my p938 and I love it. I wouldn’t mind having one for my XDSC 9mm as well. And I would really like to have one of those belts and the shirt. The kids spend a lot more time with me than with their dad, so I gotta protect them. 😉

  • kristina pratt says: May 9, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    My mother is no longer here, I would love to win for myself, I am a mother and this would be an awesome gift that I would be proud to wear

  • Mia Anstine says: May 9, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    I would be honored to be the winner of my first ever Flash Bang Holster. The combo of other items would be a bonus and I would wear them proud.

  • Megan DeHaan says: May 9, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    I would LOVE to win this for myself actually. I’m a mother of two boys and a huntress. I always carry concealed but in my purse. I have been wanting to try one of your holsters for quite some time, especially when I’m hiking in the woods or even jogging with my kids in the stroller. As of now I just put a gun in my stroller. Since my kids are too young to enter for me I’m doing it for myself!

  • Christine says: May 9, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    I would love to try out this set! My only holster is my Flashbang but I would love to be able to change up my carry!

  • Peggy Outyer says: May 9, 2013 at 8:00 am

    I would love to win this! Have tried many holster types. This looks perfect. Right now I have a holster purse, but if I don’t take my purse with me everywhere I go, I can’t carry. Please pick me!!!

  • Yvonne M says: May 8, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    I would like to enter this to win for my daughter that is a very good mother, wife & daughter. Her family is very important to her, and so is protecting them. My daughter is a very responsible woman, & upholding citizen. i think she would really benefit from this giveaway, and it would be very useful to her.
    My daughter respects guns, and does not misuse them. And she stays within what rules the laws carry.
    My daughter is the type who doesn’t ask for anything for herself, she rather make sure that her family has what they need first before she places her needs., as she places her family needs before hers and does without. So I think this would make her a very wonderful gift, & would make her so very happy.

  • Greg Strawser says: May 8, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    I’d love to win this for my amazing, beautiful wife. We recently became parents earlier this year but lost our first child. It was traumatic for both of us, but will not prevent us from trying again.

    • Kerry Redding says: May 10, 2013 at 9:16 am

      I am so terribly sorry for your loss, Greg. I certainly hope you win this. There is nothing worse than the loss of a child. You need a little happiness, I am sure. Hugs to you both.

  • Tiffany Armstrong says: May 8, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    I am a home health RN and CHL holder. I use Lisa’s holder that fits under the bra. With patient lifting and assisting to different positions that is not always the best place for a concealed weapon, no matter how loose I wear my scrubs it ends up imprinting the outline. My carry firearm often ends up in front pocket of my computer bag or side pocket on the door of the vehicle or in the purse. I would love to be blessed with the awesome t-shirt and belt holster so I can carry similar to my husband’s. I have tried many of his holders and cant get them to fit well with the curvy figure of the female body without poking into the hips.

  • Stacy Alexander says: May 8, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    I lost my mother 10 years ago, but I’d love to my daughter. She has a 4 yr old and a 1 month old. This would be a perfect fit for her to be able to carry.

  • Kim says: May 8, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    This is the most amazing holster. I travel at night with my daughter and want the ease and convenience. I can protect myself and her and still dress nice!

  • Nancy Couden says: May 8, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    It would look nice on me–or anyone who wins! And good luck to us all.

  • FaeLynne Gertz says: May 8, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    As the mother of 2 kids still at home and a husand who travels a lot for a living, this would be awesome to have. I prefer to be prepared and this would make that even easier. TY for providing a great give away!

  • Lori says: May 8, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    I’m the mother of 2 boys and I carry to protect them and myself. My husband can’t carry yet. We love going to the range whenever possible for some practice

  • Carol Keyes says: May 8, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    I’m a mom who carries as much as possible!! Would love love to add this to my carry collection!!

  • Crystal says: May 8, 2013 at 8:10 am

    I’m still working on my mom and trying to get her interested in learning to shoot, but my mother in law just took her CHL class and needs a holster for what will be her every day carry! So the holster and the belt would go to her, but I would snag the t-shirt for myself. 😉
    Some lucky mama is going to be tickled to have this package!

  • Nova says: May 7, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    I would like to win this prize package because the holster is cool and the t-shirt and belt are pretty.

  • Aili McKeen says: May 7, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Would it be strange to give this to my daughter for Mother’s Day? (Gift from Mother Day – lol) She is a beginner carrier, I’ve had her shooting since she was 10 or 11, and how that she is grown, she’s finding her own path in shooting sports. It would be great to have wonderful options for carrying her first pistol! She’s a hard-working professional carpenter and I’m very proud of the woman she’s grown into.

  • Angela Hermes says: May 7, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    I still haven’t found the perfect holster yet. I hate that I have to buy them before I try them and it is getting expensive. My desire is to be able to carry everyday but I havent found a holster that allows me to do so. The belt is gorgeous and femenine and who couldn’t use a pretty purple t-shirt to tell the world about your great products.

  • Sarah says: May 7, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    I would absolutely love this I have already taken my permit to carry course but cannot get my actual permit until a couple of months. I have been looking forward to this for years! All the gals around here are just starting to carry and I cannot find anything that is even semi close to something for women or that is a combo. I don’t want to carry in my purse where its more prone to go off if something hits the safety. Plus it would be alot easier to grab off my side! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  • Char says: May 7, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    My mom DEFINITELY deserves this. She’s a mother of five and most of us give her a TON of headaches and stress (sorry, Mom), yet she still loves us and puts up with us every day, lol. It would be so awesome if she could win this as guns are her favorite way to get out of the house for a lil while and unwind and I’d love to see the smile on her face instead of frown lines at one of us kids mucking up again. Please help me make my mom happy and give her this 🙂

  • Marian Perkins says: May 7, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    As a senior widow this would be the best win for me
    I have been looking for the right one
    Looks like the one:)

  • Connie McPherson says: May 7, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    My Mom would never carry either so this would all be for me! Love the purple shirt and have heard great things about the Ava. And I could certainly use a new belt. Hubby & I just took & passed the CHL class Sat; haven’t done the state app yet; have to get the money together. Have been looking at CC options for women and this looks like a great place to start!

  • April G says: May 7, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    First of all I would like to thank you for having an opportunity to win this wonderful giveaway! As a mom of two, I’m writing for myself on behalf of my children. I have a daughter and son that means the world to me. I’m not a slim woman but I’m working on it. With that said, it’s hard to CC without printing in my clothes. And men’s holsters just don’t sit right with me. With the warmer weather coming up, it might be impossible to CC on my person. I don’t like the idea of CC in a purse. I want to be able to defend my children and myself. Here are a few things my kids said to write: from my daughter: ” My mom is the best and I think my mom should win this to help keep us safe.” and one from my son: “My mom likes shooting and needs something to hold her gun.” Again thank you for a chance to participate in this generous giveaway!

  • joel says: May 7, 2013 at 11:30 am

    My wife is an amazing mother and protector for our children. She has had her eye on a new holster for a while and this would be an amazing Mother’s Day gift for her!

  • Shelley says: May 7, 2013 at 11:18 am

    I would love/deserve to win this because being able to protect my boys is a top priority to me!

  • Katie D says: May 7, 2013 at 11:06 am

    My Mom would never carry, but I’m a Mom that would like this very much! 🙂

  • Annette says: May 7, 2013 at 11:03 am

    I’d love this for Mothers day! Heck, I’d even let my daughters “give” it to me, then I’d share the belt and shirt with them! (They’re not old enough for a carry permit yet..)

  • Mary McDonald says: May 7, 2013 at 11:01 am

    I would love to have this for myself. Between trying to start up a chapter of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League in South Texas (a first in this area) and trying to promote my book sales, I have had no time or extra funds for anything for me. I purse carry and wish I could have a comfortable holster for body carry. My son is working now, but like most mechanics, there’s always another project they have to work on. Time for me to be a bit selfish. And Lisa, thanks so much for offering this for some deserving folks.

  • Michele L. says: May 7, 2013 at 10:58 am

    My mom deserves to win this because she always puts everyone before herself. I’m so excited she is getting back to the gun range to stay sharp with her shooting skills and this would be the perfect gift to give her! 🙂

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest!

  • Victoria S. says: May 7, 2013 at 10:52 am

    I have just received my CC permit and gun. I have fallen in love with the Flashbang line! It would be amazing to win this as a Mother’s Day treat for myself. 🙂

  • Sarah hughes says: May 7, 2013 at 10:51 am

    What a wonderful Mother’s Day gift idea! I am a proud mother of a 13 year old and due with my second in November!!! This gift package would go along great with my new hunting license that I hope to be passing and receiving on Saturday may 11th!! Wish me luck regardless. Thank you 🙂

  • Rob Martin says: May 7, 2013 at 10:49 am

    Would love to provide my wife the necessary “accessories” to not only keep herself and our family stylish – but also safe. She has her carry permit and is always complaining about the lack of ways to look cute when wearing some of the holsters she owns. Thank you!

  • James Maffia says: May 7, 2013 at 10:49 am

    I like to win this for my wife. I work e very day 12hour a day.she is at home with the kids so I got her some hand guns.her and the kids go to her sister house in
    Tennessee. She drives from Indiana so I like to win this for her.

  • Melanie says: May 7, 2013 at 10:45 am

    I am a mom, a stepmom, and play mom to numerous friends of my son. I have my concealed carry and no holster yet and I”m a cowgirl. Would love them all!

  • Amy Burris says: May 7, 2013 at 10:44 am

    I am a mom of two who regularly travels all over for livestock shows with my kids. I often have to leave my handgun in the truck because I do not have a way to conceal my gun while still working on cattle. The Ava holster looks like a great option!

  • Tina Loera says: May 7, 2013 at 10:44 am

    I would love to win this for my daughter who is a mother and she just got into shooting and recently purchased her first handgun! But that is all she has at this time, so winning a holster or belt would be a perfect addition ! 🙂

  • Jodi Martin says: May 7, 2013 at 10:40 am

    I’m not only a mother of two, but am a professional real estate photographer – which means I’m in houses I’m not familiar with 5 days a week – 3 to 4 times a day. I currently only have one holster, which is not always versatile with what I’m wearing. This would be perfect!!

  • Cathie Miller says: May 7, 2013 at 10:31 am

    I would love to win this for Mother’s Day! I am a (tired, lol) mother of 5 and since December I have taken a concealed carry class, purchased my first gun and joined the ladies league at our local range a few weeks ago. This would be a great addition for me being a new shooter. Thank you for the opportunity!

  • DeAnn Colegrove says: May 7, 2013 at 10:30 am

    My son — who never even got to play with toy guns even — has converted his mom – ME – to a well-armed mama/grandma! Just got my CHL and would love one of Lisa Looper’s holsters!

  • Diane Hassinger says: May 7, 2013 at 10:29 am

    WOW! Great package/present!! Especially to myself! All of the women in my family have their concealed carry permits and carry daily. As soon as my grandchildren are of age they will (hopefully) be able to get their permits also.

  • Laiken Guider says: May 7, 2013 at 10:28 am

    This would be a total win for me as a Mothers Day gift. I currently own the Flashbang and I absolutely LOVE it. I’ve also been searching for a well made belt that could pair well with some OWB holsters and the AVA would be the perfect addition to for my conceal carry needs. PLEASE PICK ME 🙂

  • Darlyn says: May 7, 2013 at 10:27 am

    how do you enter?

  • Becky Lannon says: May 7, 2013 at 10:23 am

    This looks like a perfect Mother’s Day present. I am not only a mother but a grandmother with my concealed weapons permit.

  • Stephanie says: May 7, 2013 at 10:21 am

    Because, as we all know, as women we want to have the capability to protect ourselves and look great doing so!

  • Sydra says: May 7, 2013 at 10:18 am

    I would love to have this. I’ve been carrying for several years but have yet to find a belt holster combination that allows me to carry consistently. Often times I end up with it in my purse.:-( I feel as though I’ll have to buy all styles before finding the “one” and financially that’s not possible so winning this would really help!
