Hey, you never know.
I could never carry in my purse. I once left it behind... lol I would have to have it on me to feel comfortable. Especially since her gun is pointing at the guy behind her... heaven forbid it somehow goes ofnf & she has it chambered :\ def not my thing for sure. but I'm still not even comfortable carrying yet.
Jessica, I agree with your decision to not carry "off body" - I think "off body" is the worst way for anyone to carry. Yes, we accidentally leave things behind (messenger bag, purse, planner) AND whatever is in your hands is usually the first thing you're separated from in the event of an emergency - it's also the first thing targeted by street thieves. I also understand your comfort level completely. I was the same way when I got my carry permit. Please make sure you get as much training as possible by competent trainers and spend a lot of time with your firearm so that you get as comfortable with how it functions as possible. Carried properly, a gun never "just goes off". It's a journey :-)
HEY, what's with the CRIMINAL ACTIVITY here? Where's that kid's BUSINESS LICENSE & SIDEWALK PERMITS? :-)
