Chad Love: Assault Purse

As a man who never quite got in in touch with his metrosexual side,  I have to admit I'm completely baffled by the female obsession with accessorizing. I have as much chance of comprehending the intricacies of bags, purses, belts, trinkets and doo-dads as I do fitting into a pair of those skinny-dude Euro-cut jeans. 

However, even I can get into this.


...For the girl on the move the Pursuader features a handy cel phone compartment in the clip. Constructed by interlocking laser cut leather this handbag has no stitching. This is a combination of old-world craftsmanship and high technology. Create the look no one can refuse.

Personally, I find that the combination of high fashion and high-capacity weaponry (albeit fake) fairly exudes the message of "confident womynhood," but if your significant other feels the Pursuader conveys an image that is perhaps a bit too aggressive, Mr. Piatt also offers a sexy little number dubbed the "PeaceKeeper 400."

Of course, even handbags aren't immune from presidential politics, and it remains to be seen whether assault purses will be banned or perhaps restricted by the next administration.

i tell ya, the companies whose jobs are to create toys and/or items of interest for the people are running out of ideas. Whoever thought of this is either highly creative or should be fired.


I'm also in school right now

yeah I agree with Nate/ I'm in school right now .... the merchandising company is getting out of hand recently though


I think you guys should be studying, or you will end up like the designer of the above......


It appears as though the barrel would be pointed at the woman's head (or the person walking behind her) as she carries the purse. Doesn't appear to be very safe, but maybe I'm looking at it wrong?

the designer listed above is too stupid he wasted his time..... I only do this in study hall when there is nothing else to be done but, yes it does appear taht it would be aimed at her head

My grandmother accessoized her purse by stowing a brick in it.
Not as effective as a firearm, but you'd have to seriously re-think yr positioning on things if you were unlucky enough to get clobbered by it.

I wish they had inveted those while i was around

Evan V

Or a compact glock that can fit into a purse?

Mike Diehl

It's really too bad the firearm is fake.

I'm also in school right now

yeah because everyone in america needs guns in purses....think stuff through before you say it, if it was your way and the gun was real murders would be at an all time high putting everyone in danger
