First, let's get the great stuff out of the way. OpticsPlanet has always been the best in competitive pricing, customer service shipping and product choice. Galco is at the top of my (leather) holster manufacturers list, and the Galco Del Handbag (I bought the tan for my wife as a birthday present) is the best out there. It is top grain leather, fully lined, proper ergonomics, and the zipper isn't placed at the end of the handbag in plain sight, but just around the corner, against the body. I recommended to my wife that when she carries (not in our home state of NJ), she carry on the left side around her neck, so that it can't be grabbed off her shoulder, and it's available for right-handed crossdraw. The bag doesn't come in a left-hand version, which would make the end zipper the better choice for lefties, but a little more obvious to spot. Now, for the reason it gets four stars, and not five. Although there is something in the strap that feels like a non-cuttable steel braid cable, it is just a roll of leather near the edge - an artifact of the stitching process. There is not a steel cable, and when I called Galco customer service to confirm this, their answer was that they felt it would be better to have the purse cut off the shoulder and call the cops afterward, than have the customer fight for their gun. I don't happen to agree with that, and neither does my wife, who has been mugged twice (years ago, both times in NJ, and therefore not carry situations). Just the same... Read More...

Great purse, strap is wide and comfortable. The lining is black and seems to swallow all the light- I can never find anything because I can't see. Pockets are too small and there aren't enough inside. Overall, though, it's beautiful and very high quality. Pros: Really nice leather Cons: Black lining makes it hard to find stuff, interior pockets too small

I bought this for my wife's birthday. She has a smaller Galco Meridian handbag that has served her well for several years. She had been shopping for a larger bag so I took the initiative and purchased this one hoping it would fit her needs. She loves it. The quality of Galco bags is well above the price point and on par with much more expensive brands. When my wife was at a COACH store looking for her new bag she had her old Galco Meridian bag with her and the sales person asked how long she had owned her current COACH bag. My wife grinned and said, it's not COACH it's Galco. The saleswoman actually asked her if she was sure it wasn't a COACH. I think it gave my wife the warm fuzzies because she knew her bag was even better because it has a place for her Glock. I'm no expert in what ladies need in their purse/handbag or whatever the right term is. I know it's leather, well made, holsters and conceals a small handgun well and is apparently mistaken for COACH brand. We are fortunate enough to be able to afford COACH brand items but neither my wife nor I see the point when you have a better option and value with Galco.
