Thread: Purse Carry???
I was curious as to where a firearm carried in a purse fell into MO state law?
I know it's not the best place to carry one but wondered anyways.
Is a CCW required? Or is it a cased firearm??
Thanks. I was thinking about Illinois' only legal form(s) of carry and the fanny pack things popped up, so I wondered about MO.
I didn't know you carried a purse, Cash. You never had one at any of our Starbucks gatherings. You must have made some serious life choices since then.
Did I say purse? I meant satchel. Indiana Jones has one.
Some call it a European shoulder bag. Have you seen the Geico commercial?
