Emma is constructed with the finest leather and meticulous craftsmanship. The natural beauty of the laced side and the crisscross knots with long tails add a subtle touch of sophistication. This satchel is lockable, too!
YKK Locking Gun Concealment:
Purse: 12" L x 9.5" H x 4.5" D
Gun compartment: 9" L x 7" H: You should allow about a half inch clearance around the zippers. This means that if your gun is less than 8.5" long (end to end) and less than 6.5" tall, it should fit.
A Note About Included Holsters: The "universal" purse holsters that most purse manufacturers include with the bags are a place to start, just understand that they will not be a good fit for many guns, they are generally nylon or elastic so the gun won't "snap in". They have zero retention. ie. if you tip the holster upside down, the gun will slip out. We strongly recommend getting a kydex plastic 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. We have two styles available: Get it here!
I LOVE THIS PURSE! Even if I didn't carry a firearm, I would love this purse. I am a purse snob, so finding a carry purse has been an ordeal for several years. With this purchase, I've bagged up my favorite Dooney and put in on the shelf. My ONLY complaint is being unable to find a holster that holds my pistol securely, but I'm still looking.
I love it. The leather is top quality and toting your gun is such a bonus. I have owned real Louis Vuittons and this puse is equal or better!! Easy to tote and light weight. I was very surprised how much I like it.
This gorgeous all leather bag is everything I hoped for and more and the hardware is exceptional. My pictures don’t do justice to how attractive this bag really is.
The bag is classy and sophisticated, giving a slight nod to a Western vibe. If you love the smell of good leather, you will most certainly appreciate this bag. Holds everything I need to carry including and most importantly my Smith & Wesson MP Shield.
This was my first purchase from Gun Goddess, it won’t be the last.
I received my handbag a couple weeks ago. This is a quality leather bag. I was pleased to see how carefully it was wrapped when I took it out of the box. I am 100% happy with my purchase and am looking forward to the RFID wallet to become available.
I'm particular about my purses in general. The leather needs to be thick, well sewn, and have a nice grain to it. The compartments need to be plentiful, spacious, and in convenient locations. The style has to be timeless. I've been looking for years for a concealed carry purse that meets these criteria – and the Emma is IT.
The metal - buckles, clasps, zippers, locking mechanisms - seems to be high quality. The leather is gorgeous - the perfect luggage tan. The whip-stitch detail on the edges is every bit as pretty in person. But my favorite, non-gun-related detail is the four metal nub feet on the base, to keep the bottom from getting worn and too dirty. Tons of room for my Dooney wallet, cell, etc. on the inside.
I'm tall (6'2"), and I have large hands, so I favor a larger-sized pistol to carry. Even with the measurements given for the conceal pocket, my husband was sure my Sig P226 tacops wouldn't fit in there (I call him Big Daddy ... the gun, not my husband). But it fits perfectly. Not too snug so that it's difficult to pull out at a moment's notice. The inside front of the carry compartment is all solid velcro, and the included cloth holster fits and works good. I don't think I'll use it because the gun large enough so that it doesn't jostle around, but I can see it being a useful extra for compacts/revolvers.
My only (very minor) qualm is with the locking mechanisms ... it takes a couple seconds of fiddling to get the lock to engage/disengage, so I can see that being problematic if you need to get to your weapon in a hurry. Perhaps with a little practice it'll get easier, or just leave unlocked and keep her close.
Do not hesitate to get this bag, it's well worth the price.
