Does anyone make a small shoulder bag that looks like a netbook case for a pistol and some extra mags.

Maxpedition does but their stuff doesn't come cheap unless you can find a good sale.

Same with Vertx, not cheap but they offer solutions that will allow you to 'blend in' without drawing unwanted attention: https://vertx.com/concealed-carry-bags-and-packs?p=2

You mean a “man bag”?

Many single strap sling bags are capable of doing the trick. Some are tacticool, some are less obvious.

I just bought the CZ branded bag, and itís waterproofing is out gassing still, pretty smelly. It carries well, built strong, but itís a complete fail in the interior, the pouches inside the zippered compartments are odd sizes and shapes, no closures, and Iím still trying to figure out what to pack where.

I also got a few other types from Amazon, for get home bags in the vehicles. Less comfy to carry, but far better pockets and logic.

I've tried so many types of bags, satchels, backpacks and finding ccw purses for my wife. I finally settled on a 2 day style assault backpack with a zipper compartment close to the body that acts as a good spot for a pistol. Messenger bags suck for traveling on foot for any distance but work okay for commuting in a vehicle or public transport. I'd recommend a backpack over any shoulder bag.

I have several shoulder pouches that carry a full size pistol, spare magazine, heavy duty folder, flashlight and miscellaneous supplies. Originally they were for photo accessories and marketed as the Domke Outpack series. Easily fit on belt as well. Not super easy access but easy to stage. Mine are used daily with a Glock 22 and mounted white light.

Here's the one I use. Sturdy, well built and much less expensive than most of its competitors.

IT messenger bags or laptop are your friends. Those tacticool bags going to make you stick out to the bad guys and good guys like me will also mark you down as reload station.

Project a soft image but be ready to bite, scratch, and tear your way to safety.

I typically wouldn’t carry off body, but I have used off-body for a backup or lager handgun at times. My two favorite options are the Maxpedition Mini Valence (now call the Entity Tech) bag and 5.11’s 2-Banger shoulder bag. The 5.11 bag is a little more “tactical” looking, whereas I use the Maxpedition bag as my Microsoft Pro computer bag when traveling via air (no handgun of course!). Both can house a Glock 19 sized pistol and extra magazines which is a nice feature. I was never really a “sling bag” fan, but after traveling with them where I wear them all the time, I found I can actually rotate them to my chest and still enter/exit a vehicle with them on and then rotate back out of the way. I can also where them in the front if wearing a backpack…very versatile.

Both will hold a pistol, a couple extra pistol magazines and even a couple extra AR15 sized magazines. The Maxpedition is a little more discreet, but I do like the 2-Banger bag as a resupply go-bag in my truck.
