How to Draw Your Gun from a Concealed Carry Purse

Odds are you will never have to draw your CCW gun in self-defense. But should the unthinkable happen, you will rely on your training to get you through the incident.

The debate surrounding the merits of carrying on-body versus off-body is so yesterday. The fact is many NRA women simply cannot carry a handgun on their person. If the best option for you is to carry off-body—congratulations, you have still chosen to responsibly exercise your inalienable right of self-defense. And chances are you are stashing your defensive pistol in one of the many available concealed-carry purses.

Most likely you will never have to draw your CCW gun in self-defense. But should the unthinkable happen, you will need to rely on your training to get you through the incident. Are you fully prepared should you be forced to present your firearm from a purse?

Here on NRAWomen.com we’ve provided you the steps to a proper draw from a holstered gun. While it may appear to be one fluid motion, this process should actually be composed of five distinct steps. A similar presentation should be performed when drawing from a purse. Watch this video as renowned Gunsite Academy Rangemaster Il Ling New shows the proper technique. This is an exercise you can perform repeatedly at home with an unloaded firearm to ensure you are ready for any scenario.
