According to Women’s Outdoor News, the new Compact Carrie handbag is available in Bright Red Leather, Cool Blue Leather, or Mustard. It boasts a double-sided design which acts as a wallet on one side while keeping the firearm separate and secure on the other side of the bag. It also has a zippered main compartment which has dividers for currency, credit cards and other personal items. Meanwhile, the double-zippered velcro-lined compartment stores the handgun. Each handbag comes with a removable, adjustable holster. Simply put, these are perfect for taking to the range or using as a gun bag and wallet.
The Bright Lead Leather and Cool Blue Leather variants are available for $149. The Mustard handbag can be purchased for $109.
“To become more familiar and comfortable with firearms, I attended a ladies’ defensive handgun class, and later a concealed carry class,” owner and designer Leslie Deets said on her website. “In both cases, I was struck by the women who came to class wearing holsters strapped to their bodies or toting less desirable military-style concealed carry bags that were far from feminine. So, being the self-proclaimed fashionista I am, I studied the current trends in women’s high-end handbags and concluded that demand would be high for a concealed carry option that offered the utmost in both style and quality of material.
“Why should women be forced to compromise fashion for function?” she asked.
