The nylon/elastic purse holsters that most manufacturers include with the bags are a place to start, but they will not be a good fit for many guns.
Your gun won't "snap in" - these holsters have zero retention. If you tip the holster upside down, the gun will slip out. We strongly recommend getting a kydex purse holster that's molded for your specific gun model, with snap-in retention.
You'll get several loose adhesive velcro sheets with it, so you can attach it however you prefer inside your bag (or any surface).
I needed a new purse and wanted one that was leather and decent quality. During my searching online I came across conceal carry purses, and thought it was a perfect time to get one as I just received my permit last fall. I was happy to find a simple purse close to what I normally use, but with the conceal carry compartment. So far it is holding up well, and my Walther CCP fits in it great. The strap for me is a perfect height and lays nicely on my shoulder (I'm 5'5".) I highly recommend this purse if you're looking for something nice but practical.

2nd Hobo bag Purchase
I am very pleased with the brown hobo bag. The color is just as depicted on the website, the leather is very smooth, and the overall size(dimension) is perfect. Right now I am carrying a
S & W Bodyguard and it fits nicely. The only suggestion I have is that instead of two internal sections which are a little small, please consider a hobo bag with 1 section. The strap is also perfect for my size since I am a petite woman!
I love it and will be ordering more items in the future. Thanks.

This is my first concealed weapon purse. So far the only things that I didn’t expect is the shortness of the carrying strap and the small width of the pockets. I’m 5’8” and the strap is shorted than I’m comfortable with. I wish that the strap was adjustable. I also thought that there would be more room in the purse itself. I’m keeping an open mind and will keep carrying it to see if I can get totally comfortable with it.

Beautiful, long-lasting CC purse
I am replacing my third GTM Hobo purse, they are beautiful and extremely long-lasting. The leather is very soft and the purse is plenty big enough for me, for a large wallet, glasses, checkbook, CAT tourniquet, etc. I do wish the strap was longer and adjustable, i's a little too short to fit comfortably under my arm and definitely too short to wear cross-body.

This purse is well constructed and great quality. What I like best is that I have the option to carry a small firearm or one with a longer barrel. It is discreet enough that others will not notice you are actually carrying, it looks like a regular purse you take when running errands.
