Default Purse Carry

My wife got her CCW a year ago, but has not carried. Now she is considering carrying. It will probably be a J frame revolver or similar. Purse carry is going to be her only option, so please don't start a debate about off body carry.

Does anyone have any recommendations for holsters for carry in a purse? I can foresee dedicated holster purses down the road, but holsters for inside a traditional purse is the place to start.

Obviously I'm not experienced with purse carry, unless someone has a better option I would suggest a pocket holster and industrial Velcro.

Per your request I will leave out my purse Snatcher input. Lol

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

My daughter destroyed a revolver carrying it loose in her purse. My best suggestion is a purse designed for carry with a separate special fast access compartment for the pistol. There are several makers out there and I believe the NRA Store carries some.

This is what I would suggest, too.

Wife wife bought a purse designed for carry with branded SS wire in the shoulder strap and has a velcro holster for you pistol to be set how you want it. Wife bought the engraved sheep skin model. Nice piece of work. She shaid now I can carry in the holster and one my body at the same time. Cool. They have enough choice in size and style to fill any needs.

Even if a lady doesn't like purses made to carry a gun she can use a pocket holster to keep the gun clean. I have seen pocket holsters with a metal clip on them, they are inexpensive nylon holsters. Thread and lint can jam the action of any gun.

Remora seems to work fine for my wife's purse(or me when I steal her gun...)
