Concealed Purses Come in Many Styles
Concealed purses are gaining in popularity. As a result there have been many styles developed to meet the desires of all the women who want to use them. Depending on the occasion, type of dress, or time of day the styles of these bags can be used to fill any requirement and allow a woman to carry a pistol for protection.
The early styles of concealed purses were merely regular purses that had been converted to accommodate the need to carry a pistol for protection. Most of these early ones were larger purses that could carry any size pistol, but with little design for being able to access the pistol quickly and securely. As time has passed and the demand for carrying a concealed pistol has risen, purse designs have made great strides in the way that guns can be carried. Manufacturers have started to design purses around the need to carry a pistol rather than converting regular purses to be able to carry a pistol. Gun carrying capabilities that were designed into a purse were such things as a separate compartment that is devoted to the pistol alone. This was done for safety and to keep the everyday items that are normally carried in a purse from interfering with access to the pistol. A dedicated opening to this compartment was made separate from the opening to the main compartment to make for easy pistol access. The compartment comes equipped with a holster that holds the pistol securely. The angle of the holster can be set by the user so that the perfect drawing angle can occur when the pistol is needed for defense.
Despite these changes that were made to create the concealed purses women still pick many of these styles to fill their everyday and pistol carry needs. Traditional styles like the tote, clutch, and hobo are as popular as ever. The classic look of the Bucket Tote has the same presence as it did before concealed carry came along. It has the large size which give you lots of room for your typical everyday objects. Those reside in the main compartment. You have zippers into side pockets for organization and a separate one to get to your concealed gun. An adjustable strap allows you to carry the bag over-the-shoulder or it can be shortened to make it an under-arm carry. If you wish to have a high style bag you might want to look at the Croco Town Tote. It has the pistol carry abilities of the Bucket Tote, such as over-the-shoulder strap, zippered pockets, and large size. It's constructed from debossed American cowhide in a striking pattern.
