That's my philosophy as well. As a female I've got the nice CCW purses. Pouches are hidden and no one thinks twice about a Granny with a big heavy purse. My husband is a bit more respectful of signs but we refuse to eat, sleep or spend money at those fascist places that don't care about our taking care of ourselves.
Nah, you can’t have a purse ... CNN says gals don’t have a way to carry because of dresses! You just aren’t paying attention to the news. :-) I’m 76. I’ve got a over the shoulder “man bag”. I keep my Kindle, a few meds and my 18 round 9 mm and 2 spare clips. Decked out with Crimson Trace, and a light. Always tickles me to be sitting there on the bench reading (while the wife is shopping) and watching the gangbanger walking by sort of “sneering” at that old guy on the bench. (An old guy with more firepower than all of them together in the mall).
