Deploying any kind of weapon in close quarters (and 3 inches definitely qualifies) is arguably more dangerous to you than to your attacker. At contact distance like that, you're just not going to get a shot off before he can grab your arm/hand, or bury his own knife in your neck for that matter.

I'm biased but this but close contact is a situation that cries out for dedicated martial arts training. You can respond, with deadly force if need be, without deploying a weapon that is at risk of being taken and used against you.
My advice, find a good martial arts instructor (notice I didn't say martial arts style) and train, train, train. Don't have time? Make time, because there are just too many occasions where total reliance on "gun fu" isn't enough.

That's pretty cool, altho I'd avoid not having a holster in the purse...it enables you to get your hand on your gun, placed correctly, every time (practice!).

The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

When reading labels in the store I put my back to the shelves, even though you will form some tunnel vision reading the label your peripheral vision will catch movement coming down the aisle instead of looking at other clutter on the shelf. The worst I've seen a shelf do is leave a little dust on my back, I'll take that to someone getting the drop on me.

I still don't like purse carry. We have a friend who was walking to her car when a car pulled up, grabbed her purse and drove off. If she had a gun (she doesn't), it would be gone with the purse. That and the fact that my wife can't find her cell phone half the time and the gun won't be ringing when she needs to find it.
Is it wrong of me to hope that sometime my wife has a scary but not harmful event like this so that she'll finally get it? I sometimes think that will be the only way.

Good grief you have to talk to my mom. Her gun is almost always in her purse. Whats the point of her carrying if she can't get to it.
