I just read 9MMmare's post about her 5.11 carry purse being recognized by officers during a traffic accident response. That got me to thinking about my carry options if I should have the need to carry concealed in a purse.
I'm considering getting a 5.11 across the shoulder bag to use as a purse/diaper bag. I've had my eye on it for a couple weeks now, just have not made the purchase yet (also considering a Disse bag). It is kind of worrisome that 9MMmare's bag was recognized and I'm wondering if anyone else has had the experience of carrying concealed in a bag or on your person while carrying a "tactical" type of bag (male or female) that made it easily identifiable that you were carrying. Were you stopped and questioned? Is this something that could make me a target to get singled out by law enforcement? Or am I just over thinking this? I'd be fine with it being a conversation starter, but I don't want to be constantly harassed because of it.
If you have any opinions or experiences I would appreciate it.
