The Before and After of Concealed Carry Handbags

If you ask someone unaware of the intricacies of concealed carry handbags, they may think it’s not a big deal—after all, it’s just a purse where you can hide your gun, right? It’s not rocket science.

Wrong. So, so wrong.

Concealed carry purses have been around for a long time, which means a huge variety of designs, styles, and technologies have come and gone to make them as perfect as they can be.

However, there must be a delicate balance between style, pragmatism, stealth, and comfort. And to inch closer to that ideal range, we must embrace innovation and be ready to discard outdated technology.

Gun Purses Of The Past.

Once upon a time, there was Velcro—lots of Velcros everywhere.

The first—and most common—design for concealed carry handbags uses Velcro to provide mobility and safety to your gun. These classic purses have an exterior pocket lined inside with Velcro loops and come with a special gun holster designed with Velcro hooks.

This design makes sense, as Velcro was once upon a time an innovative technology that could secure your gun holster in your purse while still guaranteeing you could take it out without further issue.

However, as time went on, Velcro lost its novelty, and many flaws for concealed carry began to flourish.

The Many Downsides of Velcro Purse Holsters.

The first and most obvious downside of Velcro in your concealed carry handbag is the noise The snap of the many hooks detaching from the loops can be heard across town, which can be detrimental to you and your safety.

However, things can get even more tricky.

Another notorious flaw that has rendered Velcro outdated for purse holsters is that it can lose its effectiveness over time with repeated usage. Lint and dirt can accumulate and reduce effectiveness, compromising your safety.

For example, take a look at this story published in the Women&Guns magazine. It narrates the tale of a woman accidentally dropping her gun in a parking lot as a consequence of an unfortunate Velcro malfunction in her concealed carry purse.
