GIDDY UP, LADIES: Photographer Captures Texas Women with Their Pistols

I’m sure Liberal heads will explode when they see these pics.

A Houston photographer sought to photograph Texas women with some of their most prized possessions, the handguns they use for personal protection in public and in their inner sanctums.

Shelley Calton found 80 women for her photo series, titled “Concealed,” which will be released by imprint Kehrer Verlag in Europe in March 2015 and later in the United States in September 2015.

She began the project in 2011 after a friend was getting her hair done at a West Gray salon and a fellow patron’s handgun went off in her purse. A bullet whizzed about the room, nearly hitting Calton’s friend. The tale got Calton’s photographic brain racing and “Concealed” was soon born out of that nearly-lethal incident.
