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).
Ordered the Delaney in Mahogany but that color no longer seems to be available. Received the distressed brown which is alright, but contact about the issue would have been nice instead of causing all the confusion upon delivery. Not worth returning as it seems that I cannot get the color that was desired as a gift. Hopefully the brown will be ok as Christmas is after the 30 day return time period. Otherwise, happy with the service and the product.
Doesn't work for my Glock semiauto.
The purse is beautiful, but definitely not suitable for a "large frame" gun. The gun fits in the compartment, but trying to extract it is like putting your hand in a cookie jar and not being able to get the cookie and your hand out together. It does work fine for my little S&W .38 revolver, though.
Love my concealed carry purse!
I am very pleased with my purchase of the Delaney concealed carry purse. The customer service and shipping were great. It is made with quality leather and is beautiful. I guess my only two small complaints are that the keys for the concealed carry pocket have fallen off the chain a couple of times so I just took them off and carry them in the purse. Also I do feel like the purse is a little heavy, especially if I have my gun; therefore I feel the strap could be just a little wider to help disperse the weight a little. Overall I love it and would purchase again!

This purse is beautiful and great quality! It also fit my concealed perfectly!
I have been looking for a pretty bag to carry safely in and this is almost perfect! I am used to a less structured bag but I love the feel of everything having its place. It has everything I look for in a purse: slide pocket on the front for keys, phone and chapstick, zippered and open section in the interior and the placement of the carry pocket is perfect! The only thing that would make it absolutely perfect is a little more interior space (I keep a lot of extra “mom stuff” in my purse). I was afraid it would be heavy, but it is comfortable with the heavy duty wide strap and doesn’t cause pain in my neck/shoulder like some other cross bodies. If you are looking for a tasteful, comfortable and well thought out carry purse, this is it!

Everything about the purse is great, except the strap. I was disappointed that the strap was not stronger and does not have any wire or metal in it to prevent anyone from cutting it. Also, I just think it will fall apart sooner because it is not as strong as the last purse that I had bought from you.

I placed this order with hesitation. I just wasn’t finding the quality product I was looking for. I wanted a real solid leather conceal carry purse, that would stand on its own an be very sturdy. I also wanted a locking mechanism because I have small grandchildren with me very often. This purse EXCEEDED ALL of my expectations! I could not be more pleased with purchase. I have recommended this site to all the ladies I know who carry!! I’ll be back for more!
