I hope it has a good solid strap! The most common item in a robbery is going after a women's purse but, as you said... better than nothingI finally talked the wife into looking at those "carry" purses for women. We were on a trip for her work and were in Montgomery AL for the day. We had some free time and I just happened to see the Walter Craig store. They sell all kinds of shooting equipment - and guns- and apparel. Anyway- they had bunches of carry purses for the ladies. She went through them all- and she found one she really liked- and uses it to this day. Her little pistola goes with her everywhere now that she is retired. I still can not get her to wear it in a holster....but in the purse is better than nothing.
