SHOOTing Tip – Concealed Carry in a Purse and Driving

SHOOTing Tip - Purse Carry and DrivingIt’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for another SHOOT Quick Tip!

Purse carry is very popular among women. Off the body carry in a bag or purse requires some specific attention though.  Because a bag can be carried in so many different ways, those who choose to carry a firearm this way need to keep some additional things in mind.

In last week’s shooting tip we discussed how important consistency is when carrying a gun concealed in purse. This week’s SHOOT Quick Tip discusses the times when you may not be able to wear your purse, specifically when on a drive in your car.

SHOOT Tip – Pistol Packing in a Purse and Driving

  • Take care when putting your purse down.
  • Place your purse within easy reach but not anywhere where it could impede with your driving.
  • Keep your bag close to you and never within reach of children.
  • Orient the purse so that you will have quick access to the firearm but also ensure that the gun is pointed in a safe direction.
  • Remember that carrying a firearm is a huge responsibility and that you are responsible for your firearm at all times.
