Many thanks for new section!
Always interested in adding nice, original or interesting pre 1940 single actions to my private collection. Contact me via PM.
I'm sorry I couldn't stop myself
“It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
Shown before but seems to fit here ----
When I was 16 (1940) I drove my G-parents from OK to Fayette Co. TX to visit the place of their birth. Visiting my G-aunt I was pleased when she brought out this Colt SAA .38-40, saying "I'm sure Uncle Dave would want you to have this" -- and gave it to me.
I have it and have cherished it ever since. Dating from early 1900s (s/n 265ks) shown here and in the holster of my Mom's cousin, dated from ca 1915, taken on their ranch in the Davis mountains in West Texas.
