      Since October, I stopped carrying in my purse (Thanks, Steve). So, I'm sure this will also be met with disapproval, but I carry my SR9c in my Remora holster, at 5:00, with the grip facing out (right).

      I tried to find a picture, but apparently I'm the only one who does this.

      Holly, be extremely careful about falling backwards on that gun you carry at "5:00." You could injure your spine, perhaps permanently.
      It might be a good thing to practice rolling away from the pistol, as you fall backwards. Not only would you save yourself possible spine damage, but you would be able to make a retaliatory presentation much more easily from down there on the floor.
      Do you ever practice presenting and shooting from supine? You should, you know. Prone too.

      many many years ago when i first got into judo and jiu-jistu i remember spending weeks learning how to fall without getting hurt... then how to position ourselves to defend from the ground... over the years those lesson have come back to save my ass, literally.... slipping on the ice on a philly sidewalk 30 years later i did a damn near perfect shoulder roll and was none worse for the wear....

      learning to fall is a basic self defense skill that very few have much less master.

      5:00 is not so bad. More likey to injure a kidney than the spine. But I think that having the butt forward is not such a good idea. In a fast draw you will be pointing the weapon at your vitals as you clear the holster.

      I think you can become comfortable at teh 4:00 position with the conventional grip position. If you still have the figure that I prefer to imagine you do, then this should conceal well.

      Haha, thanks. I feel VERY uncomfortable with the "conventional grip position". It is awkward and I can't draw. As for my kidneys, my old age has already given me wonderful kidney stones... So, eff 'em.

      I also like the butt forward position. You do not have to "sweep" yourself drawing any more than from the conventional position. It's all in training. Just draw and keep the muzzle pointed down and away from your body. Now if you are going to shoot from sittin' on your butt or laying back, the only logical answer would be an ankle holster. Fall back, bring your knee up, grab your gun from your ankle holster and straighten your leg. Your pistol/revolver should be pointing at the targed as soon as it comes out of the holster.

      So what's next the bra holster?

      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?

      Cheaper Than Dirt has several of them for sale.

      Here is one example for $39

      LEG-903 - Concealment Purse Navy 10" x 9" Top Grain Leather

      They have several of them

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

      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.
