    @Don Alaska
    Seems doubtful to me. But knowing the Illinois law enforcement structure (I was born & raised there), any sort of ridiculous claim by LE is possible. Now this is a possible:

    • [​IMG]
    Baby Browning, Belgian made, caliber .25 Auto. I carried one in my pocket for years, knowing full-well I didn't trust it's safety, which could easily be pulled "off-safe" from movement in a cloth pocket. However, that required the lever to move about 1-1/2", unlikely, but still troubling. A stiffer "detent" preventing movement, or carry with no round chambered, were the options.

    I knew a radiologist once who had a collection of pictures of things in inappropriate places, but I wonder about this one. He had pictures of hamsters, light bulbs, vibrators (ALL the way in), and other things. I don't believe he had one of a loaded gun.

    Somehow I am reminded of a cadence in Full Metal Jacket. I won't insert the GIF, but it was
    "this is my rifle,
    this is my gun...
    this is for fighting...
    this is for fun."​

    For the curious, here is a youtube link...

    You caught me in mid edit, as I decided to post a youtube snippet of the scene.

    I did note that the lady in question had a definite smile whilst getting her picture taken by the booking officer.
    Either it denotes a period of relief or possibly one of uh...satisfaction...……………….?

    Either way, she is literally and in the highest sense, a real pistol packin' mama!!
    Sure saves a lot of money on birth control.

    I trained with Marines at one time. This "phrase" predated Full Metal Jacket and was used whenever a Marine referred to his rifle as a gun. I never saw a DI participate in the demonstration, however.
