Why should I carry pepper spray in my purse? You ever go anywhere without your purse or handbag? Of course not. Whether you are on your way to school, to work, shopping, or just to visit friends or family, you grab your purse on the way out the door. Then when you get out of your car, you take your purse, it's always with you with your pepper spray inside. A purse can be a poor location because if it falls to the bottom, the canister is not always accessible. Always carry it in an outside purse compartment. A purse with an accessible, open pocket where the spray can't get lost may be better than keeping it loose in the bag.
