    Either she doesn't know how to properly carry a 1911 (although she looks good while doing so), or she's carrying an LDA.

    She's an attractive lady who seems confident and certain of herself, so I do hope it's an LDA instead of Condition 3.

    Two surprises in one. The fact that she's carrying a firearm was certainly notable. Also worthy of note is that she doesn't weigh 400#, all stuffed into a pair of sweat pants.

    That means she couldn't have been a customer at my local Walmart.

    That's because it's not a Wal-Mart. She probably wouldn't be caught dead in one, she wouldn't fit in, she's 300lbs shy.

    That picture has been floating around for a while. It's been used in a number of websites. Just run a google images search of open carry.

    KBCraig, I've had a few people say to me, "Did you know your gun is cocked?" or, "Hey, man. Isn't it dangerous to have the hammer cocked like that?" Sigh......

    Two of those people are actually friends of mine in the Army. They don't have any experience with single action or even know what it is. They asked why I don't keep the hammer down. I asked them how I was supposed to do that. It would mean either walking around with no round chambered, which they both agreed they would never do with their M4's, or drop the hammer on a live round. To me that is just playing with fire and would require me cocking the gun to use it. Overall just a waste of time. I had to explain all the safeties built into a 1911 so they would understand.

    Still though, every so often I get asked that question.

    Here we go. That picture is from that Time Magazine piece on OC. It's been around since at least October 2011. The woman's name is Jan Cushman.

    I saw that you mentioned using google image search. If you use "Tineye", it actually searches for just the photo you're looking for. Saves a ton of time.

    Never heard of it. Thanks for the info.
    What I do is run a google search for the picture then when I find it I click similar and it shows a bunch of sites that picture is on.
    Yours sounds faster.

    While it's probably bad form to pimp our competitor's product, google search does the same. From http://images.google.com/imghp?hl=en click the camera icon, then paste the URL or drop the image.

    I looked and the hammer is forward. It's not cocked.

    Some 1911's work de-cocked. A friend of my has a Para Ordinance that you can carry either way.

    It's not a Para LDA.... Its got a ambi safety and the safety is off. Looks to be a Kimber or possibly a Sig Sauer
    Do you want to get your Oregon Concealed Handgun License? Sheriff Dickerson of Columbia County Oregon will be at the Puyallup WAC show in October. Everything you need to get your Oregon CHL is linked through the website or you can use the information from the website and make an appointment and apply at his office in St Helens, Oregon.

    In case you guys didn't click on Decklin's link, the picture is from a Time slideshow article on California open carry (the lady is an actress down there http://www.starnow.co.nz/jancushman). So, the 1911 is not loaded in that picture.

    This. Definitely not a Wal-Mart. Either a Super Target or more likely, a local supermarket.
