SHOOT Tip Tues. – Things to keep in mind when carrying concealed in a purse.

SHOOT Tip - Concealed Carry in a Purse

Tuesday is SHOOT Quick Tip day!

If you choose to carry a firearm concealed remember that YOU are responsible for your firearm at all times.  Many women choose to carry a firearm concealed in a purse. A valid concern with purse carry is control of the firearm. Your purse can be snatched away from you much more easily than a gun that is carried on your body. Because of these concerns, off the body carry in a bag or purse requires some specific attention.

That said, this week’s SHOOTing  tip lists some things you should keep in mind if you choose to carry a firearm concealed in a purse.

Need to Know Info on Carrying Concealed in a Purse

  • Make sure your firearm and any ammunition (magazines, speed loaders, etc.) are secure in their appropriate compartments.
  • Do not place any other items like keys, makeup, etc. in the compartment that holds your firearm.
  • Keep your purse with you.
  • Never leave your purse lying around or hang it on the back of a chair.
  • Wear the bag containing your firearm or, if seated, hold it on your lap or firmly between your feet.
