Have you seen what passes for a concealed carry purse in most gun shops? I wouldn’t buy one for my worst enemy! I rate them “D” for “deadly”. If you were ever confronted with an active shooter scenario, you would take a hollow point before you could get your favorite iron out.
The common designs are significantly flawed. The gun compartment is a small appendage tacked to, or imbedded into the backside of the purse against your body with the barrel parallel to the ground. If you are right handed, you must carry the purse on your left shoulder and reach your right hand across to your left side and feel for the zipper to open the gun pouch, then slide your hand inside the small, restrictive opening, grip the weapon, swing back to the right, then perform the proper motion up to sighting position.
After all the time it takes for those movements, it’s doubtful that you could even get to an aiming position before you are bleeding on the floor. There are some videos showing the left hand swinging the purse around to the front or right side for the right hand to extract your iron, but that can be quite clumsy. Moreover, if you had a round chambered with the safety off (dangerous) the complicated extraction process can lead to premature firing which can injure yourself or even kill an innocent bystander. But even if you had no chambered round and the safety on, you would still need precious time to chamber a round and flip the safety off. Time here, is the essence of self-preservation. In addition, never forget that each bullet fired in these scenarios has a lawyer attached to it. One must take every precaution to stay clear of accidental murder and jail time.
Ok, let’s say you never have to face a shootout, the fashion aspect is largely a loser with most of these clunky beasts, so there is very little pride in sporting these little tool boxes meant mainly for a trip to Walmart or Burger King in a safe part of town in broad daylight.
A carry purse must allow you to draw your weapon efficiently and quickly like from a holster on your belt as is taught in professional shooting classes called “the presentation”. This method is a proven technique to save your life or that of your loved ones or friends. “COWGIRL LEATHER” brand purses are designed to allow presentation in that proven manner for safety. In addition, these fine crafted accessories fill the need for a classy fashion statement that you will wear with pride anywhere. They even feel good – soft and supple.

Of course, you will wisely invest substantially more hard-earned American Dollars than for those dangerous mass market, gun shop duffel bags because “COWGIRL LEATHER” brand purses are safe, efficient, and sexy. Let’s face it; the reason you carry is to save your life. Therefore, it is well-worth the reasonable extra cost for a product that provides insurance for just that essential goal.
