    Anyone out there know if any shops in the Portland area carry a good line of women's purses for concealed carry? Specifically higher quality purses...

    My wife is pretty picky about a CC purse; we've looked at them all onLine, but would like to see and feel them in person if possible. In Lincoln City but would drive to Portland if anyplace has a good selection.:help:

    They all look trashy from what I can see at gun shows. Like patchwork leather and crap. Let me know if you find a source for nice ones. Good luck helping your (cough) "wife" get a new purse.:laugh:

    You could have a tailor, leatherworker or shoe repair shop sew an appropriate holster to the inside of the purse of "her" choice, or make whatever other modifications are necessary/desired... :laugh:

    Yeh, yeh, laugh all you want to, but she doesn't think it's funny! (...and remember, she's packin'....);)

    Yes, the ones at the gun shows are mostly crap. And while adding a holster to an existing purse is possible, it may not be practical. All the really good ones seem to have a special quick-access, side-entry weapon pocket, usually located in the middle of the purse or, more properly, shoulder bag.

    Galco makes a few good ones, as does Coranado Leather; I'm looking for someplace in the area that has them in stock. There are also a couple of places that make them to order; if anyone has experience with them I'd like to hear about it.

    Now let's get back to the jokes....:eatpop:

    Check with the "pistol belt clip" sponser at the top of this page. He makes a setup for purses. Let your wife pick out her high quality purse and go from there.
