5.11 now makes concealed carry bags for women. I’m sure the $110 Lucy Tote [above] is a thoughtfully-designed, well-executed product. It’s certainly better for a woman to off-body carry in a bag designed for the job, rather than shoving her gat into any old bag in the hopes she can fish it out in time should an attacker pose the threat of death or grievous bodily harm. But regular readers will not be surprised to learn . . .
that I wouldn’t recommend this product – or 5.11’s Sarah Satchel. On-body carry for women involves a lot of expense and dedication and trial and error, requiring multiple set-ups for various clothing options. But off-body carry involves a tremendous amount of risk – of theft, inadvertent discovery by a child and too-slow presentation (leading to injury or death). It’s a free country, but don’t do it.
Am I wrong, again, still?
