Yes I did make the paddle. I used two prices of leather glued together for stiffness. I added a 1/2 inch wide strip to it where it would get caught on the inside of her pants. So that area is 3 peices thick. It is very stiff. I used a piece of rubber fuel line to space it away from the holser. I actually laid the fuel line on its side and stitched right thtough the rubber.

I am so sorry I just saw this now. I LOVE that holster. I, too, like colorful accessories. You did a great job and I think it's awesome.

I agree here. Even in a special concealed carry purse. I believe a gun should be carried on your body somewhere.

Thanks Winds. And I agree about on the body carry. But I have been happily married for 17 years. Some battles simply cant be won.

Very nice workmanship. And with those colors, she won't need a night light.

I'm also concerned about that purse carry. Even if the strap can't be cut, the purse could be ripped away from her by a strong assailant, with the cable quite possibly causing her injury.

A firearms instructor asked a woman friend of mine, "Will you have your purse in your hand or on your shoulder all the time?" I don't know about your wife, but most every woman I know will set her purse down every once in a while to do something that requires both hands. That steel cable wouldn't be much help in that case.

I'm a firm believer that if you're going to carry concealed, the gun had better be on your person every minute. But I was married three times, so I know better than to think you'll have the final say on this...
