Thanks for the input. Right now she's comfortable with carrying in her pocket. But not all her clothes have pockets, especially during the summer.
I'm going to talk with her about this. Originally I wanted to surprise her with a really nice purse that she could also carry her pistol in. But I can see I'll need more input from her than her saying I want one just like I have but with a longer strap.
The thought of a thief pulling on her purse really bothers me too. She is small and frail. It wouldn't take much for a thief to catch her off balance, though she just might put him down with her cane (She surprises me sometimes).
