ATTN Lady Addicts we need your help as well. Also Addicts Wives & Girl friends ask them guys they have a view point That's very important. I know this seems like a simple task, but it's not that easy. My Wife and Sister have been using their carry purses made by Robert K. Smith of Va. for the past 25 years. I can no longer find any products by Robert K. Smith & fear he is no longer around. The name of the purse was the Police Women 45 or PW 45 all leather with a pocket in the center. A shoulder strap with Velcro & a snap closing the CCW center pocket. The purse was $280.00 all quality leather it looked like a high quality purse that did not look like a CCW purse. Today there is a Plethora of Cheap CCW purses with zippers some locking instead of Velcro & a snap keeping the pouch closed. Now as a Man I know about Zippers & how they can stick & break leaving me with a situation of yank um down or pizz your pants. So with wet pants that can be embarrassing, a stuck zipper being the only way to access your pistol can get you killed quickly. Some of us have Wives & girlfriends & would be hard pressed to put a $ amount on their lives. Look at the amount we will pay for a reliable pistol to protect their lives so what would we pay for a Custom leather purse to carry that pistol. I think very carefully at how quickly I can get to my gun when the situation calls for it to be used. I need some help in finding a custom leather shop who makes high quality leather purses & will not balk at using Velcro instead of a zipper to provides quick access to the Pistol. Sounds easy but here is an example. I called Coronado Leather in Kalafornikica to order 2 Satchel/Purses for $450.00 ea + $60.00 for custom work. My question was. Will you substitute the Velcro with snap for the zipper? The Salesman I was dealing with, said they used to use Velcro instead of zippers but because of Children & Morons they used locking zippers instead. He was sure they would change it for us due to the price + the $60.00 alteration fee. I got an e-mail later that afternoon he said he asked & they said NO. I was really shocked the price of the purses + the extra $60.00 each I thought sure they would do what the customer wanted. No deal they said. Now you see that finding a high dollar custom leather purse that is not $25.00 to $150.00 does not insure that you can get what you want. Well there is my story, & I just can not believe there are no Custom leather builders who will not make what a customer wants & will pay for. Thanks for reading my post. I appreciate any good info that will lead to a Leather shop where I can get my Wife what she deserves. Mike .
