    Default Concealed Carry Holsters and Handbags for women

    Hi All,

    I am new here, and tbh new to guns. I wanted to share an article though for concealed carrying options mainly for women like myself. This is a really important article for women because it offers suggestions and products to conceal their weapon, and also how to protect themselves from potential attacks. This is the link: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I do not own, design or work for the concealing handbag company. I just want people to be aware of them.

    Thank you so much.

    I very much disagree with purse carry. First thing a would be robber goes for is your purse. Now he has your gun. I have had many women answer "I cross carry my purse so it can't get snatched". Try an experiment. Carry your purse across your chest on the opposite side as the shoulder strap and have someone, even a very weak person, pull on the purse. They control your whole body, most likely you will fall and they still have your gun.

    Personally, I like Appendix Carry for women.

    Carrying a handgun in a purse beats not carrying one at all.

    If one gets the right purse. Shoulder strap adjusted so your arm can rest inside the gun opening. Elbow at 90 degrees. Have your hand on the gun. Extremely effective concealed carry.

    If you're serious about carrying you will spend a lot of time and money trying to find something that works for you. What you see and hear might make sense and sound great but as you try different things you will find the flaws and what works best for you. Besides carrying concealed you need to spend time and money practicing. You may even go through several evolutions of guns. If you're not dedicated and are not enjoying yourself this may be just a passing fad. So proceed cautiously.

    After 15 years of given CC courses, I have found most women prefer purse carry. It is better to have the weapon on your person. But if purse carry is what you want a STRONG STRAP type worn over the shoulder across the chest. Then with a empty gun dry fire practice drawing. Once you get that down Get some range time. The bad guys will not give you time to make a defense. It will be up close and personal. Always be aware of your soundings. Good Luck.

    Strong strap

    I have seen CCW purses that incorporate steel mesh or steel piano wire in the strap.
