It’s been gratifying to see how broadly TTAG’s readership has expanded. It’s good to know our mission of telling the truth about guns and making the case for the safety, fun and utility of firearms is reaching a wider audience. Take, for instance, Dallas Archer. She apparently read Jeremy’s recent review of the NAA mini-revolver and was convinced that the gun was the right personal defense choice for her particular needs. Unfortunately, she didn’t exactly come by the pint-sized pistol honestly. And her carry method wasn’t really advisable either . . .
According to the the sleuths at The Smoking Gun, Ms. Archer was pulled over on a recent traffic stop in Kingsport, Tennessee. When she was hauled in because of her suspended license, things got a little more interesting:
The jailer and a female cop then accompanied Archer to a bathroom for further examination, a review that led to the recovery of a “North American Arms 22 LR revolver (loaded) which Ms. Dallas had concealed in her vagina,” according to a Kingsport Police Department report.
A subsequent check revealed that the five-shot mini-revolver–which is four inches in length–had been “stolen from an auto burglary in 2013.”
Of course, that’s the virtue of NAA’s little wonder. It’s small enough that just about anyone can tote it just about anywhere on or about their person. If we were Dallas, we might have chosen that interesting tonsorial arrangement on her head to toss the gun, but that’s just us.
Though we’re sure gun gurus at NAA didn’t envision (nor would they advocate) tucking one into a reproductive organ, it’s nice to know that there’s a carry solution out there for everyone. To be sure, the little SAO revolver is typically as safe as houses, but cramming one into a bodily orifice is an egregious enough violation of Rule #2 that we’ll be sending Dallas some IGOTD hardware. And we really don’t want to know where she intends to stash it. [h/t Paul McCain]
Could you imagine if she’d had a negligent discharge?
Wrong. Just plain wrong.
Could you imagine a desert eagle?
Uh, ma’am? For this particular discharge, you’ll need more than penicillin.
No problem if she was using a condom, right? I mean, that’s “protection”.

I recommend the comments over at the smoking gun. they are tremendous
Holy shit, I almost fell out of my chair laughing at some of them. Thanks for the recommendation!
Holy freaking crap, its just hithithit there.
So the conversation started with Ms Archer asking the gentleman, ” Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?”… and from there it just took its course…
Her Dad certainly did, it seems.
Huh, didn’t know NAA made DAO revolvers….
+1 They are all SAO
Likely a typo. Edited to SAO.
Um she didn’t own that gun. She stole it. So she is definitely not an irresponsible gun owner, but the criminal we all worry about.
Of course she is. The gun cold have gotten inadvertanly cocked and then be set up for an unintentional discharge.
Ewwww…did she lubricate her weapon? News of the weird indeed.
Is that considered an inside the waistband holster?
Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just… oh, both!
I’m sure it wasn’t cocked.
Heh, tou said “cocked.”
Missing point here – this is why licensed conceal carry citizens should be able to carry anywhere. Cars, DO get broken into and firearms stolen. Requiring those who carry to keep their firearms in their cars when going into “gun free zones” only leads to this kind of dangerous situation. I can only imagine what could have happened had this woman been able to sneak a firearm past security at the jail. It could have been a much different outcome than this. It could have been worse before this, had this woman used this stolen firearm in a crime and killed someone. I know that I would not want my firearm stolen and then used to kill an innocent. Hopefully we can move to keep the places we cannot carry at a minimum to avoid this in the future.
I don’t know if I can ever own one now with this age seared into my mind!
Don’t buy used.
Smell it before you buy it.
Which was was the muzzle pointed?
Is this a “gun as penis substitute” issue? You know, like all us OFWG’s carry because we aren’t well endowed enough. Maybe she was feeling a little less than manly…;-)
She was charged with introduction of a firearm into a penal facility. Understandable.
hahahahahaha that got an actual LOL from me
Ok, real, out loud laughing on that one! Bravo!
This is at least the 3rd case of this in the past year.
And people wonder why they get searched thoroughly when arrested and booked…
She was charged with “introducing contraband into a penal facility”…penal, penis…language is a funny thing!
She has a severe case of fetal alcohol face.
DAO? NAA revolvers are single action only.
She’s a real stuck up (your favorite slang term for the female anatomy here.) Seriously, I’m glad there are no photos to go with this.
C’mon, she’s kinda hot in a “damaged goods” kinda way …
I do have a thing for the damaged and dangerous types, it’s true.
But who names their daughter Dallas?
To be perfectly honest, I could go for her. The fact that she has 22lr is just a bonus.
It is a mug shot. She’d likely clean up well. Though, she’s got a kind of “gangster” white trash look on her face I think may be unfortunately permanent.
The ultimate “shower” carry….
The real question here is “where did she manage to find .22LR?”
The inevitable follow-up is “where did she stash the rest of it?”
OK, here goes…… “cooter shooter!”
+1. Also reminds of a story about two little boys out in their back yard, making a lot of noise. Their mother said to them, that if they quieted down she would bake them a cake.
She went ahead and made preparations for the cake but failed to notice several B B’s fell off the shelf, into the cake batter.
When the cake was done she gave each boy a piece of cake, and reminded them to be quiet. After a while, little Joey came to his mother and said that he had just peed a BB! His mother asked if it hurt and little Joey said no, and went back out played with his little brother.
A while later, he came back in an was crying. His mother asked if he had peed another BB. He said no but that his brother Johnny was around the corner jerking off, and he SHOT THE DOG!
It’s a bug BUG.
I read the article earlier this morning and I was hoping it would show up here. The most interesting part of the original story is that the original owner wants it back. I don’t believe in government gun buybacks or buyups, but if that was my gun…
There’s not enough disinfectant in the world that could persuade me to touch that gun again with bare hands.
I don’t think any rules were broken. Whatever she had the gun pointed at was destroyed long before the gun got to it.
I would be more impressed if she had hidden a Colt Python.
Gives new meaning to Hermione Granger’s bearded handbag: http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Hermione_Granger%27s_beaded_handbag
Wait, I know the Python is in here somewhere…Ron, is that you?
oh that is just wrong
So that’s where Sterling got the idea for the underwear gun…
I’ve hoid of a “gun snatch” before, but THIS is ridiculous!!!
actually, this is both a gun snatch, and a snatch gun, since the cops snatched the snatch gun.
Holy deepest concealment batman! Talk about a non-permissive environment!
In ’88 I committed paternity precisely once, then had surgery; I now “shoot blanks.”
I knew a girl once who could hide a sawed off double barrel 12 gauge that way.
Seriously I read this story this morning and figured she would get her 15 minutes of fame here as IGOTD.
I’ll just leave this here:
Fire in da hole!!
Some excellent stuff in here. I’m a little queasy.
Introducing Froglube with penicillin, for that “used” gun that’s seems a little fishy. Crazy ass people…..
Well, we all know that those that carry guns have small penis’
but does that mean those with no penis
have small guns, “IN THIER PLACE”
I bet when she was pulled over she was sweating, bulle… I mean she was something bullets
Kegel exercises not recommended with this type of carry.
+1 – or – I hope her Kegel discipline is up to par!
I search in vain for the word “rust” in the responses.
Stainless steel can only do so much…
Appendicks and IWB carry , all in one.
I hope (for her safety) she was using a pocket holster.
I wonder, do they make holsters out of beaver felt?
Too bad she didn’t buy it ‘New In Box’.
Nothing a little Hoppe’s No. 9 won’t clean up.
Her draw time couldn’t be very fast. Also, I shot one of those little boogers once and it was hard to get a grip on it dry…

I’m going to be very careful on who I pick up now. Just think, start the romance and you promise everything then bang, now you another Bobit less knife wounds, ouch! Be very careful out there, uh, in there.
Foreplay is your friend.
Once this story gets circulated it’s going to make those TSA pat downs much more uncomfortable.
You’re never getting that smell out of the wood.
Very dangerous! Someone could get shot in the face!!!
I might be wrong but I think this is one of the hit show gypsy sisters daughters I would bet money it is. It’s weird that the girls have the same name and same age and look exactly alike the only difference is the last name
