    Purse made for Carry for my Wife

    I understand there are some specially made purses for CC. Purses with a special pocket to secure the gun. I am looking for one for my wife and my mother. Anyone have any recommendations? I am especially looking to either hear from our ladies who own one or from guys that have purchased one for a loved one. My mom is not going to care about style, so long as the purse is well made. My wife will use what works, but she would like to have something that looks nice rather than an "ugly purse".

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    I'm taking things too literally lately. When I first read this I thought you were going to need an awfully big purse.

    I just bought a CCW purse for my wife the other day, it will arrive today via UPS. I'll have her chime in when it arrives and maybe she can post up a few pics for you. I think it's made by Coronado.

    Just an iNet search will turn up various types, that's how a found one for my wife. I did not really like the idea of a gun in a purse, away from the body, so I ended up finding a 'thin' leather waist pouch in a leather shop (not a fanny pack).
    My wife loves the leather pouch, it hides under an untucked shirt, and her weapon is not 'off' the body...makes more sense.

    Stay armed...search the leather shops...stay safe!

    While I agree with what others have said about "off body" carry. I think we need to remember that some women do not dress as us men do, ie: jeans and "T" shirts. I am a firm believer that if your only choice to carry a gun is in a purse, then by all means, do so. Just exercise good SA and use a quality purse that is designed for such use. My wife also has IWB holsters and will mostly use them as her preferred method. I would prefer she carried so if carrying in a purse is her only option due to attire, I support her decision.

    Thanks folks. My wife already carries in her car. She is a college instructor though and unless Texas changes the law (which they are considering right now ) she cannot carry into her office or classroom. So a purse carry means that she can quickly put the gun in the purse when she gets back in the car if she is going shopping or anywhere else.

    I will check into these sites that were recommended -- especially the CorneredCat site. I knew about that site but did not even consider that they would have recommendations for purse carry. DUH! I also was totally unaware that Galco had anything in this line. I already think she would like some of the stuff I see on Secure Purse Home - Concealed Carry Purses And I will look forward to that picture post coming on the one from Coronado.

    I have a Coronado Leather hobo bag and it is very well made. The hardware is great and it comes with a holster already in it. They are pricey but so are good holsters. I want to get one of their new crossbody types since this is more secure.

    GunGear.com has several purses at very reasonable prices. My wife got one the first of the year along with a fanny pack, she uses it daly. They give her alternate ways to cary if she can't wear her LadyFist holster.

    Received my Coronado CC Purse yesterday, its really well made. The zippers are very good quality and work smoothly. The leather is really nice; thick enough to hold the shape and the strap is thick and well connected. There is plenty of room inside for all my "junk", plus whatever my husband thinks he needs me to haul for him. My Taurus Millennium Pro 9MM fits snugly in the included holster, I think I will take the snap straps off, don't need them for that gun. The holster is leather with Velcro on the outside and adjustable in every direction to get the draw angle you prefer. The snap straps are also Velcro so easily adjusted or removed. Has a good-sized zipper pocket and a phone pocket on the inside. The holster area is all Cordura so should wear well and not snag. The zipper for that area is lockable and the key works easily for the days when your coffee buddies have little kids. I practiced the draw for a while last night, plenty of clearance, no hanging up on anything. I think this will work great for times when the outfit doesn't allow for IWB, or shopping and need to try clothes on. Also gives me a place to stash my baby in the public restroom. (Blush) I will be looking to purchase the Coronado Crosscarry bag next, it has a longer strap that I'm sure I will like.
