OLATHE, Kan. – A growing number of women aren’t just joining women’s only gun groups, they’re also looking for new ways to carry a concealed weapon to avoid the more traditional hiding spot, the purse.

Charlene Herrin leads the first Kansas City chapter of the Well-Armed Woman. She said the purse is the most vulnerable place for women to conceal their weapons.

“When you get into a situation where you think you can get assaulted, I think one of the first things you’re going to lose is that purse,” she said.

So far, 22 women have joined Herrin’s group since she began the chapter nearly a year ago.

Every woman has a different reason for joining.

Ana Rentas decided to own a gun after a close call in an armed robbery where a man held her and her family at gun point.
