‘Well, I never!’ Men of ThinkProgress fret over women buying bra holsters at NRA convention

Pearls clutched firmly in hand, two ThinkProgress dudes braved the annual NRA convention to report on the horrors of firearms and gun accessories marketed to womenfolk. Heaven forfend!


Perhaps if NRA vendors were selling floppy vagina costumes that allowed for easy access to oh-so-effective rape whistles, their delicate sensibilities wouldn’t be quite so offended?

Bingo. Progressivism thrives on a culture of victimhood.

Isn’t that what lefty femme-a-gogues like to call “mansplaining“?

We thought that was a no-no! Apparently it’s OK when Better Than You™ dudes explain what’s best for conservative women.

Meanwhile, conservative women are more than ready to exercise their lady smarts. Thanks for the shopping guide, TP!

      • Justin Levesque

        Shush! Don’t tell the lefties that’s not really a belt buckle!
        Love the NAA products. Like the model with the folding grip that clips in a pocket like a knife.

      • Hiraghm

        I’ve wanted one of those for some time. I wish they made one in .380, though.

    • BlueGood

      OMG I love the scent of a Woman with a GUN!!!! One who has Integrity & honesty & “DON’T F**K WITH ME” in her heart…along with the usual nummy attributes…..

  • Frustrated Teacher

    These guys on the left just do NOT want a strong woman who can think for herself…and they totally don’t see the irony in their positions while flogging the ‘War on Women’ meme about the right. Guess they like their dates stupid and compliant.

    • NY Republican

      That’s why they like Hillary so much because everything she’s ever accomplished politically was because of her husband well that and New York is just a communist state

  • J August

    thinkprogress? Another haven for the spineless metrosexual male and their domineering (so-called) women.

    • Garth Haycock

      It’s a rather incongruous name for that group, no? They don’t think and progressivism takes us back to worse days.

        I call them what they are ==> Communists.

        Just remember that whatever Libs say, they mean the opposite. Think means Stupid. Progress means regress. Think Progress means Stupid Regress.

  • r07a23c

    Sexy and functional. What’s not to like? Seriously, these Think Progress guys need to man up.

  • Wing_attack_Plan_R

    Males of ThinkProgress would be a better phrase. You won’t find “men” at ThinkProgress

    • Garth Haycock

      I don’t think male is accurate, as they seem to be androgynous life forms.

      • Blake Waymire

        They probably don’t like to use any masculine terms to describe themselves, anyway.

    I only wish that the gun manufacturers would realize that women like other colors besides damn pink. I love my Raspberry LCP, but it would also look good in burgundy or forest green.

      Aqua & sky blue too.

    • thetreyman

      you can always find someone who does custom work. they will paint it like you want it. i am sure the cost would go up quite a bit if manufacturers were doing 10 different colors.

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    Liberals truly live in a world of stereotypes. Men all are alike, women are all alike. Every race hates white people, white people hate every race. Unless you are a liberal. It must be terribly boring where they live.

    • http://twitter.com/HotRodFan899 Gary Freeman

      If they see a black man supporting Conservatives, they think that he is a slave who the right has brainwashed into voting for them. They think women who are Conservative have given up their rights to men. Liberals can’t accept that the world isn’t ever going to be what they want it to be.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        Exactly, and every person from the South is a racist hillbilly and every Christian hates gay people. Everyone belongs to a stereotype. The funny thing is they claim to be the most non-conformist people while making everyone conform to their outlook and putting everyone into their little box of stereotypes.

        • http://twitter.com/BrianPHovland Brian H (wackobird)

          You make too much sense for a mere “farmer” wearing a sleeveless tee……..I would watch for drones.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            Oh they don’t worry about me, I am just a lowly racist hillbilly Christian who hates gay people.

          • Christian Orpinell

            It’s funny, most of the bright country people I’ve came across in my life were against liberalism like a disease. I remember one fella who had some parents who disciplined them hard and one day I was playing an online game and from his headset I heard him trying to mutter something really quickly to his father in horror then… BAM! I heard a thunk. His dad punch him and his head hit the tv. lmao Ahhh. He was an awesome dude who always asked me to talk about how much I hated Obama when he recently came into office.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            Ha! Yeah, country people have to be bright and self-sufficient by necessity. That’s why most of us are conservative, we don’t need no nanny.

        Relax, the #FreeJahar hashtag is within the quotes, so it is one of the things Cy thinks — both accurately and amusingly — might be appended to this sort of NRA/rightwing bashing post.

        I do believe Cy was DRIPPING sarcasm……

  • Bemani Dog

    I’m sure women have hid handguns in their cleavage for a long time. Creating a bra that’s actually designed for it is what’s new about it.

    • http://twitter.com/BrianPHovland Brian H (wackobird)

      The under draw looks effective if wearing loose and untucked clothing,I would like to see someone experienced draw from it wearing a standard complement of clothing. I think it looks like a good design, I just wonder how much fumbling to unsnap the piece, or is it just smooth….. The tuck it in the front overdraw (of the pre-holster era) was fast and effective.

  • Steve_J

    Are they jealous?

    • mdtljt

      On the nosie, Steve!!! Nobody’s come up with a functional Man-zierre to accommodate their pendulous man-boobs yet but someone’s developed a functional bra holster for Real Women…I’m quite sure the WTF is strong with those wusses..

    • tops116

      Nah, they’re just nervous about what’ll happen the next time they cop a feel.

    • MrApple

      Yes, for so long Liberals have been the only “boobs” that Conservative women have had to fight with.

  • ShellyB

    you mean…walking around in a vagina costume isn’t offensive but this is supposed to be? Mother’s Day is coming honey! LOL!

  • bossmanham

    That holster has been around for several years. Not really new. Idiot libs.

    • tops116

      And at what point did a woman buying a bra holster (that she would wear under her clothes) become more of a cause for concern that a woman parading herself in a vagina costume?

      • Section 9

        What halfway decent thug would attack any woman wearing a vagina costume?

  • http://twitter.com/HotRodFan899 Gary Freeman

    I’m currently single, but if I were in a relationship, I know I’d sleep better at night knowing my girlfriend/wife had something to protect herself with if I wasn’t there. Liberals just can’t stomach the idea of women defending themselves. The War on Women is being waged by the left. Telling women that pissing themselves or vomiting is the best way to defend themselves from a rapist. But I am a firm believer in said woman pulling out a gun and making her potential rapist piss himself.

    • SkippingDog

      Don’t worry. You’re never going to be in a relationship – at least with a woman.

  • TocksNedlog

    Silly conservatives! Only GOVERNMENT can empower women.

    • kungfubarbeque


  • tcbaz

    Obviously these guys are upset because they could find nothing in their size.

  • Paul Alvarez

    Scary stuff, huh? Conservative women pushing the envelope on protecting themselves like equals with men, like humans. Just a few months back, Obama and the left had liberal women celebrating their vagina’s! How powerful….. How fucking insulting!!!

  • Rob

    A woman should NOT empower herself with a gun.
    A woman SHOULD empower herself by putting out frequently.
    Stupid feminists. They have fallen right into the hands of horn dogs and pervs.

    • LauraCastellano

      We should also learn to pee and barf on a moment’s notice.

  • bo1921

    I will say this – I bet the average Conservative woman wouldn’t need a gun to handle the average thinkprogress dude.

      Amen! Those wusses don’t have half the balls of these conservative women.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=7011573 Beth Lott

    They make ONE good point: those posters at the bottom of the TP article are kind of sexist and not something I would market to women.

          There’s a nice video online of a gal that could pull and shoot from her bra holster in less than 5 seconds with minimal training. Just use the search term “Flashbang” into your search field.

  • Bryan

    A bra where a woman can holster her guns. So that’s what we’re calling them now.

  • Jack Deth

    When a woman goes out for the evening. The locations for carrying a piece diminish greatly. Inside of the thigh and….. Why not?

    Gives new meaning to “a packed rack”.

  • tops116

    What’s ThinkProgress gonna do for an encore? Interview Dick Harpootlian?

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Two men at Think Progress who have never EVER un-hooked a woman’s bra in a moment of passion get the vapors.

    Wow. There’s a shocker.

    If I ever run dance my fingers north of a lady’s tummy and find a pink bra/ holster with a pistol between her boobies…

    I’m proposing marriage.

    Right then. Right there.

    No pre-nup.

    Period. End. Stop.

        Memo to SkippingDog:

        Quit while you’re behind.

        • SkippingDog

          What would be the point of being a quitter, assuming, arguendo, that you might have a point?

      • Nan

        Which is why the men were there; men flock to where the women are.

        • SkippingDog

          Especially easy ones.

      • CatHerder

        Sonny, do you have a clue what a camp follower is? Because you just referred to all the women there as whores. Is that what you intended?

  • aegean1

    Awesome idea! But does it HAVE to be pink?

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    If the left had a sense of humor, they’d say:

    -The bad guy is at one o’clock off your right nipple.

    -That .45 ACP does NOT go with that sun dress at all.

    -(Sandra Fluke) “With all the free rubbers in this purse, I can never find my damn hand gun”.

    -Remember that season of Friends when every show had Jennifer Aniston & Courteney Cox “nipping”? Yea?…Well those boobs now have guns.

    -Is that a fire arm between your breasts, or are you just happy to see me?

    And finally….

    Assault ti++ies (Look out y’all. No bra can hold ’em)

  • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

    They faint over a bra that can hold a gun. Damn, do they hate the reference “over the shoulder boulder holder” as well? I’d prefer a bra holder, a belt holder like @disqus_q5wTg3rlWR:disqus and a thigh holder. Full body gun coverage is a plus in my book.

  • Richard J Sunkle

    LOL the reaction of the clowns is hilarious.

  • Janet Pohl Warnsdorfer

    I have a pink gun. My husband and two sons gave it to me for Mother’s Day a few years ago. Because they love me, and don’t think I’m an idiot who is too stupid to defend myself. I figure if I ever have to use it for self-defense, the pink might give me an extra few seconds while the attacker thinks, “WTF?”


    Libturds sure know what women want. Why else do you think the tweets condemning this is all male, while the ones praising this is all female?

  • https://twitter.com/LexaInTucson Lexa

    Why does it have to be pink? We can’t like blue or purple?

  • KansasGirl

    My daddy used to call them “limp-wristed”. lol

  • stuffitnow

    Here, I will finish the “Thinkprogress’s” sentence, There’s a reason for that: women are all too familiar with the ways guns can make a dangerous situation… better, when a rapist is trying to kill you, a gun is your friend!

    HA! thinkprogress think our prez out of office!

  • People Corporation

    Women of the commune are prefectly free to be raped by the nasty ass scumbags of the commune. It’s rule number 2 of the libtard rulebook.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    The “men” of ThinkProgress? That’s an awfully Christian description of those guys, Twitchy Team.

  • Kevin

    Normally I’m with the Twitchy team, but not this time. The TP guy just mentioned it. He didn’t sound shocked or angry. Hell, I would have mentioned it if I saw a bra holster too. It’s funny!

  • Elke E. Wilhelm

    Michelle Malkin, I think “Twitchy” should hold a contest for their lady tweeters with first prize being an NRA bra holster. Should I win, I’ll take the pink one.

  • Markward

    Bra holsters… Hmmm, I know what to give my GF, she’ll love that her guns will now have a caliber of their own.

  • lainer51

    Now before you lefty libs start whining, don’t worry, there is also a bra-holster for your pop-guns.

  • 96leroy

    Need to get me a bottle of “Eau de Cordite” for the days I don’t get to the range.

  • JR48

    I hate stereotypical pink girly things but the bra holster is the bomb. Basic black gun, basic black bra under the little black dress…With pearls. An instant classic! LOL

    What this is really about is that although the progressives cheerlead about women being independent individuals, they’re actually quite patronizing and doing the opposite. They know what’s best for us. Do it THIS way. Think, THIS way. Act, THIS way…

    Instead, you could be faced with a more conservative woman with a completely different mindset. If a woman can think for herself and take steps to supply her own physical protection…she doesn’t need him or them, at all.

    Must also be a fantasy buzzkill for a liberal man to think about lingerie and not merely contemplate how to get it off of a woman, versus having to think about a woman who could literally take him out if he tried.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    My wife has one of these in black for her .32ACP. Righteous, baby! Especially when I cop a feel and she’s carrying! =P

  • JustLikeAnimals

    There’s also a matching set of pink bra holster and twist-free panties for the liberal-progressive men.

    Teaching my Cousins and some adopted Little Sisters I discovered that the bra strap under the arm is a great place to clip a knife. Guns are better yet!

  • Jackalopes

    What holster?

  • Celeine Sandlin

    have had bra holstery for years since the 8o s bought one and made one from deer hide, had aspring action if needed wore well and comfortable could be switched to shoulder carry also this is the one i made 38 or 357 kinda heavy that why i knew it had to a switch off

  • Jeremy

    thinkstupid is more appropriate name for these clowns

  • Owen

    Well, I guess the thinkprogress folk will have to stop and consider the consequences when they go to rape what they think is an unarmed lady now, won’t they?.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kathy.f.skaggs Kathy Fugitt Price Skaggs

    I have one of these bra holsters for my 1911 sub compact and one for my 380 and they work great. I also have a thigh holster, ankle holster, IWB holster amoung others you would be surprised what they make for women for concealed carry. The bra holsters are very comfortable.

  • mdtljt

    OK Skippy…I can eviscerate you verbally if I so choose….but you’re really not worth the effort so why bother? It’d just get messy & you wouldn’t want your mommy to have to wipe your tears now, would you? Yeesh…these girly-men…

  • SkippingDog

    If you had that skill, you’d have already tried to do so. Head back out to your corner so you can make some money. The evening is young.

  • Evil Otto

    Nah. You’re just a troll, and a generic one.

  • MrApple

    And ass sniffing and ball licking. That’s what dogs do, right?

  • waltzingmtilda

    And calling women whores. Which is what camp follower means, yea? Scratch a lefty…

  • SkippingDog

    Only trademark trolling, little Otto.

  • Evil Otto

    Sadly, the trademark is Natural Light.

    Sorry, there’s nothing new or interesting about you. I’ve seen countless clones of you come through, and when you wander off you’ll be replaced by another cookie-cutter pseudoleftist drone. It’s the way of things. Still, I like to give every troll a chance, so feel free to hit me with your best material.

    Unfortunately, I think I’ve already seen it.

    Notice the quick replies until he was asked to actually produce an arguement. Now, 5 hours later… nothin’. 😀

  • SkippingDog

    You’ve got to give me something to work with, Otto. Right now you sound like you’re about to cry.

  • CatHerder

    The shoe did and does NOT fit. I saw mothers, grandmothers and young ladies there. A few models as well. No whores. Now, yes or no, do you stand by your original statement referring to all the females there as whores?

  • SkippingDog

    It seems your definition is somewhat more narrow than language and custom suggest.


  • CatHerder

    Narrow, possibly, but I define it in terms of it’s original usage


  • Christian Orpinell

    Ohh dang! Butt sniffer just got PWN’d by a woman! Now, the only question next is what’s butt sniffer’s worthless reply going to be now?

    Better to just shoot SkippingDog in the head and get it over with. The world will be a smarter place for it.

  • Evil Otto

    Keep thinking that, Natural Light.

  • Evil Otto

    Yeah, we’ve got a real winner here, don’t we? He hasn’t actually said anything that could be called an argument in any of his responses. What’s really funny is that he thinks he’s an awesome troll.

    Just another generic, hipster pseudoleftist.

  • MrApple

    Then keep up the sniffing and licking. Good dog.

    I’m a panda thank you very much.
