I am willing to bet he would lose quite a bit of business if he did that. There are many purses designed for that purpose as well as pouches you can add to your purse. I know; I own them.

I ran into a bunch of bags for guns accidently when I was looking for something else on Amazon.  Carrying a firearm would soon ruin most bags because of the weight.  My DH was a deputy sheriff and he asked me to put his pistol in my handbag one night when we were out.  Wow, that thing was HEAVY.  I told him he could carry the handbag if he wanted the pistol in it.

His pistol in your purse?

That's the craziest thing i've ever heard.

Why couldn't he carry it?

 

And if he needs it, he has to rifle through your purse??

 

Doesn't even make sense

I so wish he would

The handbags I find for conceal carry are OK.   But I would rather have a Dooney.

My pistol is not huge or heavy, it fits in my Small Lexington nicely but I have to remove it to use it.    Which of course I hope I never have to do.

I have found the canceal and carry bags are ether western or large and clunky.  I'd love a feminime handbag that doesn't look like I am carring.   I have a Tig. bag with a zipper on the side I thought would be good for slipping your hand in, but it wasn't secure enough.  I think someone is missing out on a good product.

Experts actually advise women who need serious protection to carry on their bodies, not in snatch-able purses, briefcases, etc.

Can't you just see someone like Mary Beth demonstrating a handbag and showing how you can stash your pistol in it?  Oh, the image that evolks.
