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 bought this purse thinking, as it said, that it is real leather and it is NOT! The plastic strap is so hard not meleable like leather at all. IT IS STILL STIFF after a year! The purse does not hold itself well as it leans over with the weight of the purse. The patina does not get darker. It is still the same color. IT is not worth $235.00. I feel totally ripped off. The handles are plastic.
Please rest assured that the bag you received is 100% cowhide. We sent you a lengthy and detailed reply including details from the manufacturer by email. In short:
This bag's Croc pattern is deep, requiring a thicker cowhide. To ensure the pattern does not flatten over time, there is both a natural and a resin coating on the surface which also protects the leather itself (very common on bags). This coating will break down and patina over time and use, just not as fast as other leathers that have no coating at all. The manufacturer stands by their knowledge, field testing and other consumer comments to know that this bag does indeed patina in time.
The shoulder strap is made from the same leather as the bag. The straps are backed with webbing to help keep them on the shoulder. This also helps to keep the 11ply wire cable from tearing through. With some thicker leathers, the strap will be stiffer than others. The straps have been made this way since GTM launched in 2009 and have set a standard for the industry.
How the bag leans over after a year of use is dependent on what is carried in it and how the bag is used.
GTM bags are a gold standard within the concealed carry purse industry. They do not work with cheap materials, plastic or imitation leathers. This bag, and all of their bags labeled as genuine leather are exactly that, and all product features are as described.
We would be happy to work with you to identify a bag you will love and that will better meet your preferences.

Love both of them
I absolutely love both purses! They are exquisite. The conceal pocket stays flat even with the goods inside. There are nice interior pockets for organizing phone and lipstick and business cards. I highly recommend both of the purses I bought for anyone who’s interested or considering them go for it!

What a beautiful, high quality, designer type bag! There is plenty of room for what I carry in a purse AND my Sig Sauer 365 XL with red dot fits into the holster with absolutely zero imprinting. It is very easy to draw the pistol with no snags what-so-ever. The zippered interior pocket is very handy and the two open interior pockets hold my glasses and very large iPhone perfectly. You can easily carry extra magazines with no problem. Plus, I can carry my iPad! Gun Goddess shipping was fast and the purse arrived in perfect shape. Thank You!

Beautiful bag. Just right for me. Saw a review that said it was small. I disagree. But then again I don’t like a huge bag slapping around on my side.
I LOVE PURSE BUT -- it is much smaller than I thought.
I want to first say, I absolutely love this purse. I couldn't wait to get it. This was the first time ever that I spent that amount of the purse. It's worth the price. Now, having said all that, I was so disappointed when I hoped the box and saw that it was much smaller than I thought. I probably shouldn't give a 3 for a review because it is partially my fault for not carefully double checking the size. The photos I saw made the purse look so much bigger than it is. I thought about keeping the purse, but for the price, I don't want to settle for the size. We'll see how the return goes.

Alligator skin purse
I like it it’s a little stiff but I am sure it will soften up. The main future I love is I can pack my heat close to my chest ):
Wife loves it
We will be buying another one from y'all soon!! She loves it!!!
