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.

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?
