One of our goals at SHOT Show was to find a variety of trendy options for female concealed carry purses. Because who says we can’t be trendy while carrying!?!? This year we found 4 vendors selling some stylish bags with different features and at various price points. All MSRPs are suggested by retailers, but at Armed in Heels, we will do our best to bring these products to you at a fantastic price. Here are our top picks now carried by Armed in Heels:
Roma Leathers is great because they offer a quality product at an affordable price. All products are top quality leather. All concealment compartments have lockable zippers as well as soft holsters that are fastened to the interior of the purse with Velcro. Model 7034 comes in black, brown, or tan. It is made for right or left handed shooters, with zippers to the concealment compartment on both sides. The handles are 20” and rolled leather. The two side pockets are magnetic and snap being a great storage place for cell phones, pepper sprays, stun guns, small batons, flashlights, or other small things. Model 7034 is 15”x10”x7”.
