Pistola on right looks like 1860 Colt Army w/ centerfire conversion. On left looks like Remington Army

The gal with the pistols and the sombrero would have to turn her self in for 'sensitivity training' these days. :-(

Based on the darker color of the brass radiator, I suspect the car is not new. But I believe it still shows the brass headlamp rims although the side lamp rims do not show as brass. The brass trim would indicate it was a 1915 Model T [based on the other 1915-16 items body with metal cowl, brass radiator, curved rear fenders, flat front fenders, equal length windshield hinges etc.]. Zooming in it also appears to likely have a horn button on top of the steering column.

Looks like the group is enjoying their outing in the Model T.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

I think the gal with the pistols is having a good time! She in on an adventure and loving it. George can you tell if the pistols are loaded?

Look at the fork mounted electric headlights. I wonder if those came from the Ford factory.

Herb, probably not, hammers on both are down and you don't want a hammer resting on a primer.

The car has the 1919 California porcelain plate with a star on it. So the car would be about four years old when the picture was taken.
I cannot decide whether the headlamps are on forks or not. The left one sure looks like it is a fork mount. Being a Califunny license, and looking like a 30 X 3 tire in front, it is unlikely to be a Canadian car, so one would wonder why the lamps and mounts would have been changed. The electric horn button makes it likely a later '15 (for open cars), so it would be very unlikely it would have left a USA factory with a fork-mount lamp.
The lady with the pistolas does not look Mexican to me. So I would think that she is with them. She, however, looks like she knows how to have fun! Might be an interesting marriage.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Those pistols are properly carried with one chamber empty and the hammer resting on the empty chamber (or nipple in the case of a cap and ball revolver) when loaded.
