Default I need a purse!

I wanna possibly get my wife a concealed carry purse for her full sized S&W M&P9 for Christmas. Ladies, what do you recommend? What should I stay clear of?

I have no idea what to think of when buying a purse. What other questions should I be asking?

I need help!

Im no lady, not much of a gentleman either....but i wouldn't suggest a purse for CC. If the perp is a purse snatcher he just ran off with your gun.
For that gun, a relativly large CC gun, i would reccommend simply OWB carry.

I understand. And I agree with you.

It doesn't really help me though. Some women cannot carry on their person and therefore must have a purse or something similar. Especially given the size of her gun.

If your wife is dead set on carrying in her purse, I recommend the type with a steel cable concealed in the strap.

I'm not recommending this site specifically, but a purse or handbag much like they make.

BTW, JW357 if you need a pair of size 12W heels to match "her" purse, PM me and I'll give you a good site to check for those!

Thanks for the tip. I'll see what I can find.

I was completely set on a purse for CC. Then I REALLY thought about it. you have to unzip/open the pistol compartment, get the weapon out, load a round, take off safety, THEN you are ready to go. Seemed like alot of work. Or purse snatchers are always an issue too. Why not get her a smaller carry gun for CC? Lots of on-body options! A good conceal carry purse is going to set you back about 200.00. And I can tell you that a purse is a very personal choice, my husband may say "what about this one honey?" and I think it is hideous. LOL

Just a few opinions from this girl I OC in a pink camo holster Beretta 9mm sub compact w/17 round mags.

Or in my wife's case, unzip and take the gun out and fire.

I think they make flaps that you don't unzip tho right?

I pretty much agree tho. I don't like the idea of it either. I'll prolly try to talk her into getting a smaller pistol with a holster. But if that doesn't work I need to know what kinda bag to get her...

Or a different present....

Hubby and I did quite a bit of searching. Everything we saw had snaps or a zipper. We were thinking of just buying a normal purse I liked and then sewing magnetic strips or something into the purse ourselves for the pistol compartment.

Perhaps find a company with a good selection and give her a gift card?

These are reasonably priced and I have seen the products in LGS, nice purses, well made!
