Re: Where do you Ladies carry?

I think very few men have the confidence and the presence to pull off carrying a purse especially carrying with style!

Re: Where do you Ladies carry?

I see no reason to pocket carry. The only pants I have with pockets also have belt loops so I would use a holster.

Re: Where do you Ladies carry?

A person has got to admit that bad things happen and then admit that bad things could happen to them before they will consider personal defense as a priority.

Re: Where do you Ladies carry?

It is interesting that Thunderwear was targeting women but by the posts on this thread more men have them than women!

Re: Where do you Ladies carry?

jswarren,

I appreciate that you are out finding out about different carry method for yourself.

I carry in an off the shelf purse bought at Macy's. This purse has several compartments. I dedicate one to my gun. All of the other stuff is in other compartments. I keep the gun situated correctly and the trigger covered by using a Desantis pocket holster. This is how I get a "carry purse" that suits my needs and taste.

By the way Galco has the most stylish carry purses out there in my opinion.

Just to cover all bases: I carry in a strong side OWB holster and an IWB M-Tac. I have all the other methods: ankle, thigh, shoulder, belly bands, and Thunderwear. They all work very well but you do need to dress to accommodate them. You will find supporters for each. Truthfully your wife will have to find the one that works best for her. If she is lucky she will find someone like me that has all the options so she can try them before investing.

Good luck! By the way I am in Conroe, TX, north of Houston. PM me if you are in the area.

Re: Where do you Ladies carry?

Purse carry is an excellent option. It's ONLY drawback is that it isn't attached to the body through belt loops. However, it can be carried cross shoulder in front of the body with fairly adequate security.

On the plus side, the presentation of the gun is very quick form a holster. (Quicker than a lot of CHL holders can draw from their strong side holsters. The gun can be fired from within the holster for even quicker use. Women will be far more likely to carry their gun with them. Purses offer a wide range of sizes to choose from allowing a wide range of gun options. It allows a covert way to keep the hand on the gun when needed without anyone being the wiser. Try resting your hand on your gun in a strong side holster when walking in a parking lot covertly! It isn't very easy to do but it is with a purse carry.

Again purse carry is a reasonable carry option for women and for many it is their best option. Purse carry like every other carry option does need some training and some practice to be proficient.
