    As others have said, training. Training and practice on things like drawing from her chosen method of carrying and also getting a sense of when lethal force is legally permissible and might be required. It's not a one hour class and I can assure you that a high percentage of people that carry haven't had this sort of training.

    It's a great resource on concealed carry in general, but also things that only apply to women.

    Don’t touch this!

    A common mistake when carrying the first time is constantly touching your gun to make sure it is still there.

    Kind of like telegraphing your wallet location to pick pockets.

    I prefer a belly band. It's easy to wear a d fits under anything even yoga pants. She should practice drawing her gun unloaded so that she is prepared and doesn't get hung up in clothing or whatever she is wearing for a holster. CC purses are also a good option. She can just shoot through the bag if needed. You said she is comfortable with the gun and how it shoots, practice is still a great idea. I try to go at least once a week. Our local indoor range has a women shoot free day, typically a Tuesday or Wednesday. Must be the slow days lol Best of luck to her!
