This handbag really caught the eye of my wife, Doris. She has an eye for style, especially so when there is also a practical application, so when she says she likes something, I pay attention.
I have learned a few things over the years when it comes to women and guns. The first was when I tried to fit a shotgun to Doris. If you've done that, you know that all the rules you learned about gun fit just don't apply when it comes to women.
The second "learning experience" was when it came to concealed carry. Due to anatomy and style, it can be difficult for a woman to comfortably carry a handgun every day in every situation. That's not to say it can't be done but it may take some creativity. A good handbag can be a real asset.
"This is a very well made bag and something that I would carry," were Doris' first comments after examining the Vera Messenger Handbag. "It's small enough to be unobtrusive but has enough space to put everything I need. It's also strongly constructed so it won't sag with the weight of a decent sized pistol."
"The messenger bag is very easy to carry and position with the adjustable strap and I found that I could get to my pistol quickly if needed. It's something I could grab and be out the door when running errands and know I was prepared."
I've noticed that Doris has this handbag pretty close at hand since it arrived. She's shown it to several of her friends and has remarked that she thinks it will be a real hit at the NWTF Convention & Sport Show in February. "I hope Vera Handbag will have a display there because I just know that many women will want one. Valentine's Day is also that weekend and I think it would be a great gift."
