Yes, a gangster's moll, sometimes known as a "gun moll". Another interesting slang term is "gunsel", which I first learned when I saw Bogart in "The Maltese Falcon". The junior gangster who tries to rough him up is a "gunsel".
I love slang from the thirties and forties; it's fun to watch films from that time for the line of patter.
