15 thoughts on “Man Purse”

  1. So what they are saying is that the “fashion conscious” (but not GAY!) man would rather look like he’s carrying a gun than carrying a man purse, which is, like, totally gay. Totally.

    I guess we now know why Starbucks told the Brady’s to kiss off.

  2. UH oh. I guess no one has pointed you at the “safepacker” from thewilderness.com. You can put it on a shoulder strap, on your belt or just carry it in your hand. I use one threaded thru the seat belt on the empty passenger seat. Oh, and it does hold my 1911.

  3. That one I’d consider getting, actually. Even if it does look like the son of fanny-pack.

    (OTOH, I wear what amounts to a low-profile shoot-me-now vest – ScotteVest. With the sleeves attached, it looks like a windbreaker. As a vest? Well, it’s not a photog vest and the pockets are discreet, that’s about it.)

  4. Has no one noticed that the damn thing faces the wrong way?

    I defy anyone to draw a gun from a shoulder holster in that orientation – no pun intended.

  5. You kids nowadays! These were popular (and less expensive!), in the no-pocket-pants Days of Disco. “Certain people” were well advised not to wear them. A full-size .32, if you can imagine such a thing, fits nicely, but they don’t draw well.

    The new ones must be too heavy to wear, considering the weight of douchebag-hipster irony they’re loaded down with.

  6. This one is simple: Put a powder horn on it. Preferably scrimshawed with “I Powder and my brother Ball hero-like, do conquer all”.

  7. I can’t think of one reason why someone would carry this other than to look completely ridiculous. Thanks for posting, Sebastian! :)

  8. I will just stick with my summer fanny pack. I am old enough to not care anymore!

  9. I carry a Maxpedition Versipack in Foliage Green with a reverse field subdued flag on it, and there’s nothing “metro” about it. It’s nice, too, because if I feel like concealing illegally (not that I’d ever do that… *ahem*, but I’m in WI), then I can do so and since the firearm is in a bag, I can decline a search and the Terry pat-down can’t find it (in an admissable fashion, at least).

    What I want to know is when did chicks steal the purse from men? I have to wear cargos to carry all my shit if I don’t have a bag. I do refer to it as a “man purse,” however, because that way I’ve already made a self-denegrating comment and can’t really be further immasculated by anyone asking about it. OODA!

  10. LOL, nice, Geek. I agree; my aim is to fail every interview with criminals (which happen often given the area in which I work) by looking like someone with whom they should not fuck, and having the ability to back that up if they’re stupid enough to try.

    Unfortunately, there are some areas of the world where having the best means to back that up aren’t possible, so you have to hope that projecting the image is enough. Other animals do it, why not humans?
