Rachel H. wins WON — Celebrate your freedom to carry concealed with this Roma leather bag from Armed in Heels

roma-ccwpurseThis cowhide leather purse, from Roma Leathers, is perfect for concealed carry if you are looking to stay stylish. The concealment compartment is along the back side of the purse with zipper access from both sides, which means a leftie or rightie can enjoy this bag. The holster is inside the concealment compartment and attached with velcro so that you can adjust the angle to get a perfect draw. The main compartment of the purse has various places to store all of your goodies. Cell phones and keys will find homes in the side zippered pouches along the exterior of the purse. This beauty measures 13.5″ x 10.5″ x 5″ and comes in black with brass fittings.

Armed in Heels wants to gift this purse to one of our readers in honor of the Fourth of July and all it signifies — especially to a woman who chooses to carry a concealed firearm.

Jacquelyn Kelly, co-owner of Armed in Heels shows off the concealed carry purse.

  • Denise B says: July 3, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    Spending time with the family, hopefully some range time, and then fireworks. We also make sure to remind the kids why we have this holiday. Love the bag! Always hard to find a purse that doesn’t look like you’re carrying.

  • Edith S. says: July 3, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    I am spending this 4th of July with my family, minus my husband who has to work. He is a firefighter-paramedic. We try to spend every holiday together & give thanks for whatever the day is intended for.

    I would love to get this. I just got my CCW!

  • Margaret says: July 3, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    I’ll be spending the holiday with family and friends – watching a movie (Despicable Me 2!), enjoying a BBQ, and watching fireworks. Would love to have a concealed carry bag! Thanks!

  • Christine says: July 2, 2013 at 8:51 am

    I’m working my City’s 4th of July parade! I would love this concealed carry bag.

  • Shauna White says: July 2, 2013 at 2:33 am

    I will be celebrating our freedom this weekend with my significant other for the first time. We have known each other for over ten years and have been together almost three years, but it has always been long distance as he is active duty Air Force. I finally made the big move across the country to be with him and have just arrived to my/our new home in Arizona. First order of business on our days off this weekend? Checking out the tax-free sale at Second Amendment Firearms for some new “toys” 😀 I am planning on getting my first carry firearm so this purse would sure help me out…!!

  • Vanessa Weedon says: July 1, 2013 at 10:21 pm

    I will be spending the holiday with my family.

  • Jan D says: July 1, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    As a disabled Navy Veteran, I am going to Alabama to visit my son who is active duty in the Air Force. He is stationed in Prattville and they have an old-fashioned 4th of July celebration that we are going to attend.

  • Creaion Kilpatrick says: July 1, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    This 4th of July I will carry on a tradition that has been in my family sine before I was born. Every year, may family does what many families do. We get together and have a cook out of epic proportions. As a southern family we pride ourselves on having a spread of exclusively home made food. There will be home canned green beans, fresh made salsa and of course the southern chilli and slaw dogs.

    Plenty of people share this practice with their families. What sets our family apart is that every year, before the meal is served. Everyone in the family from birth up, gather together for the annual reading of the Deceleration of Independence. Some years we have fussing babies, or bored toddlers, but everyone is expected to participate.

    My husband is in the navy and currently on deployment so he may or may not get to read with us this year. However when we were courting we were both in the navy I told him that this was a tradition that he must embrace as if he wanted to marry me. Since we were for sure going to have times that we were apart, I wanted him to be able to always tell our children that he was honoring the same tradition wherever he was.

    He has kept his word during the five years we have been together. This year we may have the opportunity to do it together via Skype depending on the ship’s port schedule. Either way I know that every member of my family will speak aloud the words of our forebears.

  • Karla Dye says: July 1, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    I will be spending this Independence Day holiday with my youngest daughter going to parades and fireworks. Hopefully getting to talk with my son who is deployed overseas serving in our armed forces also hoping for a call from my oldest daughter who is also serving in our armed forces stateside but unable to come home for holiday.
    I just acquired my CCW this past weekend, this bag would be great!
    Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday!

  • Pam says: July 1, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    3 months ago I moved back to the town I grew up in. For the first time in more years than I care to say I am spending the 4th with my mom, my sister and her husband and son. We’re going to watch the local parade, have a BBQ and watch the fireworks! If I can work in some time at the range, I’ll be there. Total small town fun!

  • Deanna D says: July 1, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    I will be spending the holiday with my family, enjoying good food, quality time, and a few fireworks. The weather here has been beautiful and we’ll bask in the sunshine! Then after supper, pick out some more options for the AR my dad is helping me build! 🙂 Happy 4th everyone!!

  • Kari M says: July 1, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    We’ll be celebrating with good friends, and thinking of my husband/my son’s father who is currently stationed overseas, who is very happy to know I have the means to keep my family safe while he’s away. 🙂

  • Rachel DeVaughn says: July 1, 2013 at 7:34 pm

  • Laura Gibson says: July 1, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    I’m celebrating my freedom with my family by drinking 32 oz Cokes at the range!

  • Erin Cook says: July 1, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    This year I have applied for my concealed carry license, I am not carrying yet but I hope to be soon. With all of the red tape in New York, because of certain govement officials it is a long process. But this 4th of July I will be celebrating with my husband, and remembering freedom isnt free. And giving thanks to all of the men and women who have and currently serve in our nations military.

  • Cathie Miller says: July 1, 2013 at 10:29 am

    I will be spending it with my family! 🙂

  • JM Bates says: July 1, 2013 at 9:32 am

    I’m taking my boys to Arlington Cemetery to visit my grandparents and the others who fought to keep the country free and then to a baseball game.

  • Kathy R. says: July 1, 2013 at 9:18 am

    I will be celebrating by taking a week off work, camping in the great outdoors with family, having some target practice with my 9mm and sending in my CCL application.

  • Rebecca Schmoe says: July 1, 2013 at 7:59 am

    I will be celebrating our Independence Day with family tradition. My entire extend family, on my Dad’s side, meets up at my grandparents homestead. We talk, laugh, fish, cook dinner over a bonfire, target practice (the elders training the youngsters on safety and accuracy), set off fireworks, and making memories. I’ve been doing this since I was one of the youngsters just learning to aim a Red Ryder BB gun, and now I am helping train up my own youngsters.
    This will be the first year since both of my grandparents have passed, but we are committed to carrying on the tradion they started so very long ago.

  • Rachel H says: July 1, 2013 at 7:40 am

    This is my little girl’s first Independence Day! We’ll be hanging out with friends, barbecuing some great food and watching the Boston Pops on tv.

  • Peggy Armstrong says: July 1, 2013 at 7:02 am

    I am new to be able to carry concealed and I love this bag!
