Thanks to my husband and his obsession with hunting, I’ve been coerced into taking it up as a hobby. In the past few years I’ve compiled quite a collection of camouflage clothing. They range in color from pink to orange and green to white. You can get camouflage in almost any color now a days.

The only thing about camouflage is that if someone is wearing it, you expect to see them carrying a gun, especially if it’s hunting season. However, it seems that there is a new fashion craze when it comes to sporting guns and it doesn’t involve camouflage.

According to a new Gallup poll, 23 percent of gun owners are women. With this statistic and the popularity of concealed weapons permits these days, fashion designers are just one of many who looking to cash in.

Apparently lovely lady’s wear is being made to hold concealed weapons. Now a lady can look her best and protect herself. Dare I say that she’s dressed to kill (only if necessary, that is.)

You might be surprised at how great some of these clothes look. You would never guess that the woman who is wearing one is packing heat.

It seems that clothes aren’t the only things helping women defend themselves, jewelry and accessories have even got in the game too.

So, ladies if you’re looking for a feminine way to keep yourself safe, then consider an item or two featured in the Firearms and Fashion Show.
