Thread: Concealed Carry Purse

  1. Not to be a complete a$$ but I get such a kick out of these forums. People take the time to ask YOU to search the internet to answer THEIR questions. Don't these jokes know how to use Google? They come here and ask about purses so half of you people tell them "Don't carry cocealed in a purse". Is that what they were asking about? I don't think so! Honest-a-god!

    While there are pros and cons to carrying in a purse; yea, carrying a gun inside your purse comes with greater responsibility due to the theft factor. There really are some nice purses to carry with. Galco has a nice line of carry purses, I think they look stylish, yet are extremely usable if you need to fire. Priced a bit high, you run the risk of blowing them apart upon fire. Some places will replace your Galco purse at no cost if you ever fire through it, nice to know.

    Yes, Obwana1, I agree with you about the many purses now available for carrying concealed. I also agree that it has its risks and that carrying concealed on your body is the absolute best option.

    That said, there are times when women need the option of carrying in a purse and the range of choice and style is quite impressive. One reason I have chosen to buy from the Gun Totin' Mamas line is that they have a lifetime replacement policy if you should ever fire through your purse or if there is ever a problem with the leather on the purse. Also, these purses have reinforced straps on almost all (or maybe all, not sure) of their Styles. While this is still no guarantee that a purse snatcher couldn't use tree trimmer shears or heavy duty scissors, it still offers another level of frustration for a would-be BG.

    Happy carrying!

  5. Thank for the suggestions =)

    I recommend Concealed ......the purses are very stylish and very functional. I bought a red leather one and love how it looks. Gun securely held, and I am able to adjust angle. I use for back-up. Have you tried flash-bang bra holster? That is a better full time carry solution....and keeps you in guaranteed control of your gun at all times.

    This one is cute:

    And yes, a purse is not ideal for carry. However, sometimes a woman's wardrobe is not conducive to on-body carry. And, wardrobe malfunctions happen. If that happens, you can have a purse in the car as a backup. I'd recommend the ones that you can use with cross-body carry... That makes it more like you're wearing it. If you do use a purse, never take it off!

    I agree a carry purse makes me more uncomfortable and skittish.

    I just find a small, quick access cross-body style I like, then put a holster in it with industrial Velcro. I agree with others that it's not the best option, but it is an option. Do try to go cross-body though, or it could be gone before you have time to react.

    I had seen these on another forum the other day, thought they looked like a good option for women since they can be worn in different configs. Warrior Creek

    Although I don't advocate purse carry, there are times when you have no other choice. It's either go without or deal it. Here's the problem with CC'ing in a purse that most people don't think about. Often, if you can cram your firearm into the compartment opening, drawing it is nearly impossible. Ideally, you would be choosing a purse when you have YOUR gun with you (cleared, double checked for clear and cleared again) to try putting it inside and drawing. The firearm needs to fit in the holster (repositional is ideal). If you can't draw it without a lot of difficulty, you won't be drawing it effectively when you need it. Whatever you decide, PRACTICE drawing your firearm and getting on target.
