Why A Gun Purse?
Congratulations on your decision to concealed carry! Now that you’ve made the decision to protect yourself and your family, it is time to find the best method of carrying your weapon that fits your lifestyle. If you are like me, you take your purse everywhere, and putting my weapon in purse seemed to be a logical choice of how to carry. Great in theory, though in practice, I ruined several nice purses, including a couple of Coach bags, because the purses were not designed to have a gun in them! That is not even taking into account that MAYBE I could have found my gun under my keys, wallet, and other miscellaneous ‘Mommy, hold this!’ if I really had to! After a while it became clear that what I was doing wasn’t working—I needed to get the right equipment for the job—a gun purse. Something designed for the weight of my gun, AND that I could locate/draw quickly without rummaging around in my purse.
I bought my first gun purse, a Coronado Leather bag, 4 years ago, and have carried it almost every day since, and I have been extremely pleased with my 'investment'!! I bought a Cognac (natural finish) Hobo Bag, and it has worn like iron. The leather wears a bit unevenly and has developed a sort of patina, and it has become buttery soft to the touch. The stitching and all the hardware look like the day I bought it, and you would never know that it carries as much weight as it does. (I carry my grandmother’s antique revolver which is 2.5 pounds on its own!) Yes, a Coronado bag costs as much as some Coach bags, though this bag has lasted me 4 years with continuous use—and should last for many more years to come. By comparison, I destroyed 2 Coach bags in just over a year by carrying this same gun! A gun purse is an investment, and in the long run, it WILL save you money!
Why Gun Tote'n Mamas?
In the US, there are currently 5 manufacturers of gun purses--Roma Leather, Gun Tote'n Mamas, Coronado Leather, Galco, and Designer Concealed Carry. On the low end is Roma Leather, and I do not recommend them, as I believe they are cheaply constructed. Roma is better than nothing, though not something you should plan on using for longer than a short period of time. In the middle price-wise are Gun Toten Mamas and Coronado Leather. I sell and believe in both these brands. They are an excellent value for the price point, and will last for many years to come. Coronado Leather and Gun Toten Mamas make it possible for every woman to carry a quality gun purse that is stylish and durable. Galco and Designer Concealed Carry both manufacture beautiful bags, though in my mind, Gun Tote'n Mamas and Coronado Leather are the best value on the market.
Gun Tote'n Mamas makes it possible for a woman on a budget to be stylish while still carrying concealed with a quality product. GTM is currently the only bag company who makes slash-resistant straps. The straps on all their handbags are reinforced with metal, making it virtually impossible for a purse snatcher to snatch and grab. The peace of mind of always having your weapon close, and not being in the hands of a criminal can be priceless. Which ever bag you choose, I applaud you for supporting the right to protect yourself and your family.

If you insist on returning your item after 45 days, I will deduct all expenses I incurred including listing fees, PayPal commissions, and E-bay commissions. (You will need to pay the shipping charges to reach me in the event of a return, and I recommend insurance. If the product does not arrive in saleable condition, I will not be able to accept the return and will send your item back.) Your item will be enclosed in a clear plastic bag prior to being boxed to avoid scratches or water damage. Should your purse be damaged in transit, I MUST hear from you within 48 hours so that investigations and claims can be initiated with the delivery carrier.
