    Glad that the lesson she learned was not a violently taught one and that she is OK.

    Keep reminding her.

    yea, the words "dig through purse" gives me a horrid taste in my mouth.
    I'm not for off-bodied carry at all, but if you are going to do it you CERTAINLY need to have a purse meant for CCing, one that the gun has its own pouch that you can get to VERY quickly

    Does she have a purse like this? If not....hubby can take her shoppin'!

    Do you folks mind if I ask what this product is?

    The misses and I are awaiting our CHL and she is set on using her purse as a means to hold. It's more like a sling/sachel type thing. I wish I knew what it was called (or i'll post a photo of it later tonight).

    But she can place her px4 storm sc in it and it conceals fine and she only keeps her wallet in there (so no clutter). But my concern is the trigger being exposed and would prefer to have a trigger cover that holsters provide.

    The dude may have been a lecher, but from what you wrote, he didn't do anyting illegal. The manager can confront him and tell him he is creeping out the customers and ask him to leave, however.

    Might want to make sure she keeps a knife handy as well, if he was that close reaching for a pistol in a purse might be a bit difficult and a pocket knife clipped to her back pocket might of been easyer to deploy. My girlfriend keeps 3 on her that she carries daily and switches (between the many we have) depending on what she is wearing. Glad nothing happened.

    There are quite a few companies that make them, if she searches online.

    Galco
    Guntotenmamas
    Roma
    Coronado


    I have a Roma backpack style but I usually carry in my 5.11 Push Pak (similar to a Maxpedition Versipak & Fatboy)...and use it as a purse. All of these have cc pouches with velcro'd in holsters too.

    The Cornered Cat site also has a list.

    Good luck to your wife!

    This was a concern of mine as well and that's why I ordered my M&P with a thumb safety. I carry with a round chambered, but safety on.

    And with practice, a woman with good SA can have her gun ready and/or drawn as fast as a man. She can have her hand on her gun at anytime she chooses.

    The main drawback is retention. Yes, you may have the purse stolen from you. To me, that's not likely any worse than a regular mugging if they just take it and go. You lose the gun. Argh, yes. But the gun is just a thing, like a wallet.

    If they grab or hold you up for your purse, and you havent already prepared, give them the purse and start heading in the opposite direction asap. Dont wait around for them to find it.

    (And I never forget my purse. Not since the early 90s anyway)
