Concealed Carry Weapons at SHOT Show

Allison Barrie of Fox News discusses the different types of concealed carry guns that were being exhibited.  I have had a previous post about women carrying guns here
. . . Revolvers hidden in the handles of briefcases, ladies handbags, going Storm Grey, cutting-edge suppressors -- they're all meant to keep your weapon status on the QT. There were heaps of traditional concealed carry methods at the 2014 SHOT Show, but for those looking for holster-less options, here are a few that had attendees talking. . . . 
Need to carry a briefcase AND a firearm? No problem. K-Var’s solution is a briefcase with a revolver concealed in the handle -- which is arguably more "Get Smart" than 007, but cool either way. This option is part of a very limited release of three guns in .22 short with five shots. . . . 
If you’re trying to conceal a weapon on your torso, then shoulder holsters that restrict what you can wear can be a big challenge for women. 
Vendors responded to the growing women’s market, bringing to SHOT Show a wider selection of compression garments and purses designed for concealed carry. Undertech Undercover’s Bebe purse was getting a lot of attention from the ladies, for example. 
The new Bebe is a compact leather clutch that can be used with jeans or that little black dress. In addition to your lipstick and whatnot, it's made to fit compact semiautomatic pistols and small-frame double-action revolvers. 
The full-length zipper along the handbag’s upper rear edge opens to a lined compartment with an elasticized holster and for added security it has a locking zipper.
Designed to keep a compact handgun available and quickly accessible for personal defense, it retails for about $180.
The Bebe was just one of a proliferation of handbags for women and for guys looking for a concealment man bag -- the selection wasn't nearly as good as for the ladies, in fact. . . .

The perennial problem with women's self defense is their strong tendency to put anything they carry in their purses. Off course such items sink to the bottom and are useless in an emergency.

Women with helpfully robust physiques should consider hiding their weapon in the bra area.
