Top 10 Gorgeous & Functional Concealed Carry Purses For 2018

posted on November 7, 2018

We women get a bit of teasing from men complaining that we have too many bags. While that may be true sometimes, it’s funny how our bags are life-saving for them when they need something and we dig into our magical bags and pull out whatever they asked for (be it tissues, floss etc). When the need arises, we’re prepared and immediately know that our purse is life saving, especially when the purse is a concealed-carry purse. As more and more women are getting their concealed-carry licenses, more manufacturers and designers work to provide us with a multitude of options to choose from for concealed-carry purses. Whether going for comfort, style, discretion or whatever you can afford, here are just a few options on the market that we love.
