|gpa&hisguns||67 years old...no doubt her purse was big enough to hold everything including the kitchen sink and there was that derringer rattling around amongst all that stuff in her purse. If she rummages through her purse like my wife then she could have cocked the darned thing while frantically looking for her cell phone. Who knows. My wife's purse cost well over $100 but it has a pouch built right in to hold her purple LC9S and keep it separate from the junk! Loose in a purse is no place for a hammer gun!|
