Recently I read an online article from a well-known designer purse company listing the top handbags every women should own. Since I carry concealed, I decided to peruse GTM’s website to find out if the styles listed in the article also come in concealed carry purse options. Imagine my surprise to find out that GTM carries several types fitting the various categories. See for yourself in my listing below of the top CCW purse styles you should own.
