    Does anyone have a pattern for a quilted concealed handgun purse? I know there are commercial companies that sell chl purses but I'd rather make my own.

    Thank you!!!!

    There was a thread about this awhile back. I'm trying to think of the title, but my mind isn't working.

    It would probably be better to design your own to fit the gun you'll be carrying.

    I would think you might want to make it out of something sturdier than quilting cotton because of the weight and wear from a handgun.

    Since August 2010....I love to shoot. I am also going to training once a month with a retired FBI agent. He has an awesome obstacle course set up that simulates places in your home that you might shoot around, over, under, through. Then once done with that, he has pipes that we shoot at that spin when we hit them. My accuracy on these 2 1/2 x 5 inch pipes is about 95%.

    Sorry guys...this is the quilting board but guns come in a close 2nd in my book. Just call me "PPM" - pistol packin mama....
    Still hopin' that someone can help me out on a pattern.

    Leslie :D

    Wow girl! No idea about the pattern. I would love to learn how to shoot just for the sport aspect but it is good to learn to be able to protect yourself and loved ones too. It is great you are getting the proper training. I just became a black belt in taekwondo along with 6 of my children another 3 are working their way up through the belts, great excercise and great defensive skills.

    I have been packing for over 28yrs . I like to hunt, Target practice especially with my mom, dad, bro's, & son d/law Grandson . We have all taken all the necessary course . But I have always had a cple pistol around plus a few rilfes never know in this day age . My Dad is 93yr he taught us all how to use & respect a gun. Really need to see this purse might make some for Christmas.

    My daughter has her brown belt in Karate and her boyfriend is a second degree black belt. I am thankful for the training they have received. Training is definitely the key. I was scared of guns till last year. Now I have a healthy respect for them.

    I love to target practice but I can't ever see myself hunting...but who knows...with the way the world is going....I might need to learn to hunt. I feel confident in my abilities to defend myself in my home. But without the proper training that I am attending I wouldn't have that confidence.

    Lelsie, I think it is a wonderful question and I think it would be a great thing to make. I will be watching to see if anyone is able to find the pattern.

    I am so glad ya thought to ask this question. I have been searching the net for an affordable one that looks like something I would actually like carrying! They are so expensive and rather telling, imho, as they all look so boxy and just scream "I have a gun in here!". LoL! Will check the other thread listed to see what I can find out. I do know that a local shop here carries the holster insert for purses seperate so it musta been done by someone already.

    I second that. I've been shooting for quite a long time. Actually got my pistol permit when we were staying in a cabin in the mountains. Loved picking blueberries, but so did the bears. Lighter than lugging around a shotgun.

    The Pattern is a "Maddie Bags", but if you go to Google search : "Sewphisti-Cat", you'll find it. Thanks so much, Leslie for asking the question. Oh the number of the pattern is SC-#13

    I'm waiting on my concealed weapons as we speak. :) Should be here in the next week or so. I've carried a gun in my car for years though (Sig 45). In MS your car is considered an extension of your home so it's legal to carry a weapon in it without a permit. I've got a gun under my side of the mattress as well (Browning 9mm). I shoot all regularly and am very comfortable doing so.

    I've seen the concealed weapon purses at the gun shows but I think they're super ugly. :P I've decided what I'll do is modify any purses I carry to hold the holster for my gun in one of the side pockets. The holster is an inside waist style so it has a snug metal clamp that holds well agaist a flap of material. I'm going to be carrying a Ruger 380 so I won't need a lot of room in the pocket.

    I'll be watching this thread to see if any patterns pop up that I like.

    What a great thing! I never thought of making my own cases. I could make one for each of my shotguns and my rifle. Trying to talk hubby into buying me a pistol, but I just bought a Tin Lizzie so it will be awhile. :/

    I think cotton and batting would be plenty strong enough for a pistol. They aren't as heavy as one would think. Heck, we put flour and sugar in cotton sacks.

    BTW my turkey season is this weekend! Woo hoo!

    The only thing I want to toss into this thread is, I work in the retail business of selling guns and work everyday with ccw instructors and police officers. They always remind us ladies that even though ccw handbags are a great idea remember, What is the first thing they try to take from a lady her purse! I perfer to carry on my person.
