Well, if it's a man purse, at least there are firearm accessories for it....

I was looking at the description after following the link. It says the bladder is sold separately. I guess that makes it removable. It also makes the bag more expensive.

Edit: It looks like it's a different bladder that's sold separately. My bad.

Well alot of people carry two guns on a regular basis, some even three... I my self normally carry some type of .45 usually a 1911, strong side 3 o'clock. and have a snubby like an sp101 or 637 crossdraw at 9 o'clock. It really depends on your setting and your comfort level.

a backpack or laptop pack you carry a REALLY big gun. i used to keep my DE .50AE with 4 extra mags along with my old para p10 in my belt under my shirt. at the time the .50ae was the largest handgun available, this was before the 454 casul and 500sw. a fanny pack you cant carry jack all and it makes you look like your out for some man love.

I carry a back pack from blackhawk any of the smaller packs will work. I use a Israelie map bad also that I had a holster mounted in.

Here in AZ it is so hot that a vest is not practical. I tried using a 5.11 vest and found it to be very uncomfortable in the heat. Plus the velco they use to mount there holster does nothing for holding your weapon close to your body. It has a tendency to tip forward with anything but a small mouse gun causing you to constantly have to pull it back. It felt like it was falling off all the time.

When I am in a hurry to go to the grocery store or to run some quick errands I have thrown everything in a small galco hip bag that I usually carry on my shoulder. In it I have my xd45c with my wallet and a surefire flashlight. Quick and easy. I would not use it in a very large city but it has come in handy at different times.
