    "Man-Purses"?

    Hello Ladys & Gents.

    I have seen these bags that are designed to carry a pistol & spare ammo,etc.

    One example is a Maxpedition Fatboy Versapack.

    Any of Y'all use these?

    Love it, or hate it?

    My pistol, ammo and knives stay on my person. I'm not a fan of carrying a weapon in a bag unless I'm carrying it to the range.

    It would suck if you left your versapack behind or if some BG grabbed it off of you.

    dont carry a gun in anything that isnt attached to your body.
    I find the safepacker to be a good 'hidden in plain sight' kinda thing:
    Safepacker Concealed Carry Holster - Wilderness Tactical Products, LLC
    nobody has looked twice at me with it on. though i am a girl, i wouldnt expect much as a guy either. especially since it looks outdoorsy, or dangle some headphones out of it to look like a gadget bag.

    I use my FatBoy Versapack as a camera bag. I also carry extra magazines as well.
    Ahhh, what an awful dream. Ones and zeros everywhere... and I thought I saw a two.

    It's a carry on bag!!

    No, it's a purse. LOL

    I will continue to keep mine on my person, why chance losing it to a grabber or have someone question what you are carrying?

    Man-Purse.... that's just asking to get mugged.
    I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" "Is that a Smith & Wesson 686+ 7 shot or 627 8 shot?" "Does he have a concealed Sig P226 SCT and two spare mags?" You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

    About five years ago I had to have my right hip replaced and I had to search for an alternative to on the body carry. I came upon the Maxpedition Versapack. Maxpedition is well known for the quality of its products and the Fatboy is certainly one of those. This is a quality product and serves its purpose well. I recommend it without reservation.

    I have one from Eagle Industries that looks like this (assuming my link works)


    I like it because it mirrors very much the computer bag I am frequently forced to carry anyway. I prefer to carry on my person, but occasionally its useful.

    I like the idea of a Bag holding a Glock 20 10MM & 2-3 mags + a shoulder holster holding a Glock 29 as a BUG.

    IMO: It's kinda creepy UNLESS you're hiking, biking... When mountain biking I use my camelbak for gun. I carry everyday IWB Holster, Dual Mag IWB holder, ZT-0301 in front pocket.

    - Indiana Jones is not a real person
    - Looks nothing like his leather satchel

    All in all, it's not bad looking. I'd wear it if I had a need for one.
