Re: Conceal Carry for a Female
There's a lot of good reading about why a woman shouldn't carry in her purse and should be carrying on her person, mainly the purse is usually the target of a thief.
If she does insist on carrying in her purse, I would recommend her getting a purse that has that specific purpose in mind so she can practice drawing from the purse. You don't want the gun getting lost in the clutter of a purse, so having a dedicated pocket is the best option.
Admittedly, my wife struggles to find something that she can conceal carry on her person without obvious printing so she usually chooses carry in her purse. She has a Sig P938. They're very compact, and she can carry it on her person in the colder months when wearing a coat.
I got a holster for my wife from a company called The Well Armed Woman.
