pocket holsters discreet; and tuckable, inside-the-waistband models
a good compromise, none of them
works equally well in all manner of
situations or scenarios. So as much
as I might decry the dated "fanny
pack" concept, for many applications a more recent iteration of
that design, from makers such as
DeSantis or Uncle Mike's, might be
just the ticket.
For people walking about town
or spending a day hiking trails, a
myriad of field packs and urban
backpacks allow their wearers
to bring along a handgun that's
not only completely unseen when
casually opening and closing the
bag, but also positioned so that it
can be drawn whether the device
is on or off the body. Blackhawk
and other makers have backpacks
and slingpacks that look reasonably natural in a wide variety of
environments and are well suited
for carrying firearms, and other
daily essentials.
People who, like me, are a bit
old-fashioned, believe the briefcase is still the go-to package for

transporting necessities during
the work day. A search of catalogs
from some of the more reputable
manufacturers reveals that there
are many gun-carrying options
for those who prefer this venerable carrier. Tactical briefcases,
discreet options and examples
in several sizes and materials are
available in the ever-expanding
market.
But with an eye toward urbanization (and with many previously
anti-gun cities now allowing concealed carry within their borders),
there is also a whole subgroup
of shoulder bags and so-called
"Messenger Bags" that subtly fit
into that look and lifestyle as well;
giving people in more fashionconscious environments the ability
to blend. Woolstenhulme makes
contemporary bags that look great
and, like all good ones, carry the
gun separately from other contents
so that the firearm is readily available and unobstructed by other
items of cargo. Blackhawk also
makes several bags that fall into
this category.

PURSES
Both Galco and Gun Tote'n
Mamas offer ladies purses that
are stylish and that feature
compartments speciļ¬cally set up
to accommodate a holster and
spare magazines. They include:
(1.) the Galco Metropolitan, with
a sewn-in holster accessible
through an end-panel zipper; (2.)
the Gun Tote'n Mamas' Concealed
Carry Basic Hobo Handbag, also
with end-panel, zippered access
to a handgun; (3.) Galco's Bebe
clutch, with a separate, lockable
zippered holster compartment;
and (4.) Galco's PAX, also with
a separate, lockable zippered
handgun compartment.
