The Concealed Carry Purse

The Concealed Carry Purse, people either love them or they hate them. To carry your firearm in a concealed carry purse is your decision to make and there is no right or wrong answer. What there is though, is what is recommended. You are an intelligent woman who can consider all of the information, the risks and the pro's and con's and make an intelligent decision for yourself if a concealed carry purse is right for you. Why do so many fiercely counsel against this popular mode of carry? Likely for two reasons. One, there is serious risk anytime our guns are not on our bodies and two, it limits our ability to respond as quickly as possible and those seconds could count! These are very real issues that must be considered and consciously accepted by you when making the decision to holster your gun in a concealed carry purse. I trust you will do this. 

2016 Shot Show (From the Firearmsblog.com)

This year I was fortunate enough to have my wife attend with SHOT with me (though she was in a buyer role), and she asked why there was hardly any coverage on products for the ladies. Well, sheesh, good point.

Her biggest issue is finding a concealment option that will work well as a purse. Women’s business clothing is apparently not as concealment friendly as my cargo pants with a flannel shirt, and so she would like to have the option to carry in her bag. The problem is that most of the bags she has found to date have not been very business fashionable.The inside is lined with velcro allowing for a number of configurations.

Another complaint (that my wife had) that Gun Tote’n Mamas has addressed is having options to access the gun from the top. Most gun purses have a side access, and that is problematic if you switch the purse from shoulder to shoulder, since the gun would now be in a less advantageous position.

The quality of the material is pretty high and the construction looks solid. The have even incorporated an anti-cut feature into the strap.

This is the construction that prevents a quick cut from letting a bag snatcher run off with it.

Gun Tote’n Mamas has a number of options to fill that gap with a number of styles and varieties that can accommodate and match with any wardrobe. And for that matter they have a number of products that will work for guys (satchels, messenger bags, and even a leather iPad case that can conceal a 1911 Commander or Sig P220).

You can see a number of their products and styles on their website: http://guntotenmamas.com/
