Holiday Season Off-Body Concealed Carry

It’s the holiday season, which usually means dinner parties, get-togethers, and new outfits. Yes, silky shirts, heels, skirts and dresses aren’t always conducive for concealed carry on your body. For some who carry everyday, this may mean switching to off body concealed carry, a viable alternative.

Holiday Concealed Carry

  1. 5 Things to Look for in a Concealed Carry Handbag. When you choose a purse for concealed carry make sure it meets these standards for your safety and others. 
  2. Know Before You Go. Stacy Bright wrote a very informational piece about gun signs and the law. Do your research before you head out to a get-together at a place you never visited. 
  3. Carry in a Handbag. If you don’t always carry off-body, make sure to practice drawing with an UNLOADED firearm. Here are some more tips you may want to consider.  
  4. Traffic Stops with a Firearm. Yes, during the holiday season law enforcement usually has a stronger presence on the road. Be sure you know how to handle this situation.

Putting the Bling in the Holidays

Are you the type of person that likes to stand out a bit in the crowd? Do the hangers in your closet hold wild colors, prints and perhaps a bit of sparkle?  How about those crazy socks, scarves and shoes? If at any point you thought, “Yep, she has my wardrobe pegged,” I guarantee the Gun Tote’n Mama (GTM) Glitter tote is a perfect choice for you. 

GTM purple Glitter tote

The GTM purple glitter has all the features I look for in a concealed carry handbag. 

  • A separate compartment holds my firearm and comes complete with a holster I can Velcro into the position I prefer. 
  • The nylon coil zipper has 2 zipper tabs that allow me to set up access to the firearm compartment that works with my draw. 
  • A separate shoulder strap attached with D-rings and allows me to carry cross-body when the need arises. 
  • Although I’m right-handed, should I loan this purse to a left-handed friend, she could use it just as easily. 

My favorite part of the GTM Purple Glitter Tote is how cute it is! Check out all the outfits I found for it.
