    My wife & daughter carry in a purse like this all the time.

    On a serious note. My wife is wanting a purse to carry her pistol in when she get her CCW. They are allowed to carry a gun as long as it isn't on their immediate person (OWB or IWB). She likes the ones with the longer straps and a pretty big main compartment. Any, recommendations?
    There is a bra-holster. It clips onto the front of the bra (in the center). It probably is not well suited to a full-sized 1911 (in most cases). But a Kel-tec .32 weighs less than 7 ounces and might work. Access would be interesting however.

    There's a couple of videos out there, showing how it works. (Appropriately, it's called the FlashBang.)

    Evidently it's both comfortable and fairly quick; and during a presentation, nothing shows past the navel.

    there is also a upper thigh, deep conceal holster for women who work protective details and i have seen this displayed very effectively AND got to remove it myself on a subsequent date....

    http://gunpurse.net/ and http://www.ccwsupply.biz/PurseHolstersPAGE.htm Are my recommendations. Galco and such have OK purses, but they're ugly... and look like you bought them to carry a gun (plus, they have "Galco" on the rivets ).

    I don't carry in a purse anymore (thanks, Steve), but if I still did, I'd buy a new one of these.

    Also, the bra idea is STUPID.

    Holly;
    I get "site not found—error" when I click on your link.

    What's your take on that FlashBang bra holster? Why "stupid"?

    Fixed links. Thank you. The FlashBang looks great in videos. However, if you tried hanging a gun from your breasts, you'd understand. Maybe if they invented a better bra to go with it... To much weight in that area... Also, it would limit mobility for anyone with even a minimally active lifestyle. Breasts are in the way enough as it is... Just my opinion on the matter.

    Being female with a CWP in the south where the summers are hot it is hard always carry on you so I either carry a Ruger LCP revolver in a large purse or a Walther PPK/S in my pocket with a simple Uncle Mikes pocket holster or in a small cross body with an extra magazine. The Walther .380 is so very slim and accurate for me to use and does not have the painful recoil of the Ruger. But, in the car I also have a Glock 19 in case I need it.
    One thing women have to remember when carrying in a purse is that semi auto's can jam when extracting if you try to fire through your purse but no problem doing that with a revolver. But, the bad guys can take your purse and have your gun instead of you so I would rather carry it on me, but not always easy to do for women.

    What I carry depends on where I go .I carry a S&W 340PD or 642 in pocket or belt mostly . If I have to go somewhere that is not safe I dont go . But if I have to I take my XDM 3.8 with 19 RD mag critical defence and a extra mag .Galco shoulder holster classic lite .

    I carry a tcp 380 in front pocket in a remora holster for now. Just got my permit Saturday! Have a CZ p-01 on the way that will be IWB carry once i get it. But I still will carry the tcp in pocket at work, I am a painting sub contractor and way too much bending, crouching, stretching ect. to conceal anywhere but my pocket.

    I agree. I always carry in a holster. I carry a Taurus TCP .380 in a holster in the front. My jeans are always too tight to carry in my pocket or the pockets are just not big enough. I would love to carry our Walther pk380 but it is just too big for a holster.

    Ruger P89 in a Desantis IWB. Wife thought I left it at home last night til she put her arm around my waist. Said " you did bring Ruthanne. I thought she was home with the girls." If I can conceal a full size from my wife, I am g2g.

    Lately, with all the hot weather, its been "pocket rocket" time chambered in .380 ACP. Hey, don't laugh. It would still leave a mark!

    Glock 23, IWB Crossbreed supertuck holster. This time of year the leather is developing quite the patina. I also clean the outside of the Glock more often.

    Depending on my mood, I'll carry my Ruger SR1911 in a Mitch Rosen or my S&W Model 38 Airweight in Akers leather. Both are OWB holsters. I sometimes carry my Glock 31 in a Blackhawk, but find it fairly blocky compared to the 1911. It's my gym gun, which I carry in a DeSantis Scabbard with a reload.

    Except for the gym loadout, all guns are worn on-body with two reloads, a Fenix flashlight and a Kershaw blade.

    Will be adding a satin CZ-75 Compact to the mix in a few weeks.

    I carry either a 380 or a 9mm Bersa OWB covered by a long or short sleeve over-shirt

    I have IWB and OWB holsters for Glock 19 and Taurus MillPro PT145; which one I use depends on situation and clothing.

    The way I think is you carry where you can. And some people say a 380 is not an acceptable defense gun but if you are proficient enough with anything you can carry it. Even a 22 in the head will kill someone.

    A .22 in the groin may stop the threat!

    I strongly suggest that you both rethink your statements.
    The effective use of a defensive weapon hinges upon quick deployment.
    If you do not carry your defensive pistol in the same place all of the time, and if you do not practice presentations from that same place, you will fumble your draw and come off second best in the most important contest of your life.

    I agree with Steve wholeheartedly! I generally carry (concealed) one of two guns all the time. They are in exactly the same place on my hip not matter which it is. I occassionally practice (around the house and ranch) carrying my Smith 640 in an ankle holster and I promise you will never forget where and ankle gun is!!
