According to an article from Cosmopolitan, way back in 2016, “The hottest trend in bags right now isn’t fringe or studs or prints, it’s guns. Specifically, purses designed to conceal guns.” Not much has changed. Clever and stylish methods of concealed carry are still the trend today. For this reason, GTM (Gun Tote’n Mamas) specializes in purses with this in mind. GTM demonstrates this specifically with products like the concealed carry, distressed leather shoulder portfolio.
The GTM Concealed Carry Distressed Leather Shoulder Portfolio
Constructed of distressed vintage tanned, full grain buffalo leather, the Portfolio has ample room for more than just your CCW. The 12” x 8” main compartment easily fits iPads and small laptops. Also in the main compartment is an organizer that keeps cards, pens, keys, paper pad, small lunch, etc. Additionally, two zippered lining pockets help you stash items you don’t want to float around.
Designed for right- or left-handed use, the special backside is an entire CCW pocket, with zippered access from either side. The interior includes special padding to ensure that your pistol won’t print and give away your secret. An included standard holster, designed by Mernickle Holsters, can be adjusted to your comfort draw angle. The rear CCW pocket also contains an exterior horizontal zippered pocket to store additional items, like spare magazines.
To maintain the structural integrity, the textured bottom has five chrome feet for added protection. Finally, to prevent theft, the 11-1/2-inch, 11-ply steel cable reinforced, double shoulder straps are slash resistant. As a result, you don’t have to worry about someone cutting your portfolio, and more importantly your firearm, from your shoulder.
Chisholm said, “It was astonishing to see how GTM caught the eye of ‘Cosmopolitan.’ To be compared to the iconic and historic Birkin Bag established the challenge that concealed carry bags can carry their own weight as being on trend. Our motivation and mission did not stop there. In plain sight, we will always move forward to design and provide the best for women’s protection.”
The GTM Concealed Carry Shoulder Portfolio is available now, with an MSRP of $179.95. For more info, please visit GTMOriginal.com.
