    Best concealed-carry purse

    My wife is thinking of getting a purse designed for concealed-carry of a small revolver. We have looked at the leather purses in the NRA catalog. Does anyone know of some good (but less expensive) leather or nylon purses with special pockets for the job?

    I have one of their product so I can let gals in my Defensive Handgun classes shoot the exercises and drills with it. I feel it is the best of it's kind.

    I don't know nothing about gun-totin' purses, but I know Galco is well-respected and they make a bunch of them. Scroll down the page: http://www.usgalco.com/Women.asp.

    Coronado Leather makes exceptionally high quality products with a price to match. But, the stuff they make, including handbags, is well worth the price. It lasts forever! http://www.coronadoleather.com/

    A lot of women have a very difficult time finding a good on body concealed carry holster. The way womens bodies are shaped and their clothes are designed makes it more difficult for them than most men realize (unless their wife has been through the search). Even most holsters are not designed to conceal a weapon on a womans body.

    My wife tried a variety of purses which were designed specifically for concealed carry. The only ones that felt right for her were 2 or 3 of Galcos purses. I don't recall the ones that she liked except the Metropolitan purse http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPT3.as...&CatalogID=394

    In her research she found that many women who go with a on the body concealed carry holster end up with either a small of the back holster or a cross draw. Even these have mixed results among women, with most (most of those my wife read about and spoke to) preferring the SOB holsters, and even then only when dressed for colder weather.

    Ya beat me to it, HowardCohodas! I always try to send women to that site for perspectives on how best to carry.

    Don't forget SmartCarry or similar (like a BellyBand).

    Although they are "deep concealment" (usually meaning "slow to draw") there is no chance of leaving it unattended at your desk while you run to the break room for a cup of coffee.
