Gun Tote'n Mamas has announced the GTM-116 Waist-Sling, available in lavender, black cowhide and the iconic Distressed Buffalo.

"The GTM-116 is meticulously designed to meet the trending needs of women seeking a practical and modern solution for carrying their firearm," stated Claudia Chisholm, president of GTM. "At Gun Tote’n Mamas, we understand what women want. Each of our bags undergoes rigorous testing by some of the top instructors in the USA. The new Waist-Sling combines functional design with impressively fast drawability that can surpass an on-body holster. This update to the original fanny pack truly empowers women to take control of their own style!"

The GTM-116 delivers on power, offering versatility as it can be worn on the waist or as a crossbody sling. Designed for use on either the left or right side, the bag features a light pebble surface texture crafted from American cowhide. The leather is shrunk to achieve this classic look and is lightly coated to protect against the elements while maintaining its color and consistent quality.

Key features include: 

  • Available in black, lavender and Distressed Buffalo
  • RFID protected
  • Fits 50” waist fully extended with extender
  • Fits 24” waist fully retracted without extender
  • Gun compartment measures 7 ¼" wide x 5 ½" tall x 1" deep
  • Gun footprint area of 6 ½" wide x 4 3/4" tall
  • High-density poly strap webbing that is 1 ½" wide
  • Side and angled draw capability
  • Special padding prevents imprinting
  • Mini Holster
  • MAP: $105.95 (cowhide) / $110.95 (buffalo)

This design targets all situations demanding front-body draw wearability including wheelchair users, bike riders and horseback riders.

The Waist-Sling includes GTM’s iconic Mini Holster designed by Mernickle Custom Holsters, enabling side, angled and top draw (micro guns only). Tested with various firearms such as the SIG P365, Sig P238 and the Ruger LCP, the GTM-116 ensures exceptional reliability. Compatible with Crossbreed holsters, the bag also features a black slip lining that prevents lining grab and facilitates smooth gun drawing.

Gun Tote’n Mamas remains committed to prioritizing women’s protection and providing a practical and reliable way to step out in style. For more information about GTM Original and its services, visit
