    Here's my 1918 Colt example, not as nice as everyone else's. But it's something I've had for many years, and I'm proud to own it along with the bits that go with it.

    Outstanding rig displays shown . Does anyone ever display publicly? If so what type venue do you display at? I for one have not although I have thought about it. It is hard to find a venue in my area and am reluctant to let the world where I live know what is in my house!!!

    Gentlemen
    Absolutely beautiful displays! They are all great so very difficult jus to focus on one. I have only displayed here on the forum. I am too picky to take them out in public. I don't like fingerprints/smudges!

    If you look carefully at the bedraggled fellow standing on the ground, you'll just see the butt of a S&W Combat Masterpiece .38 Special in my issued shoulder holster under my left armpit. It was the first of three holsters that just rotted off my body over the course of that "tour."

    The second and third ones were for a Government Model .45ACP. I did bring the third one home but lost track of it. I probably pitched it because it was useless in civilian life and in poor condition.
    The picture is at Cu Chi, 1971.

    Harkrader:

    That is one fierce looking M35 Gun Truck. One does not see a lot of USAF Gun Truck images.

    Do you happen to recall what type of shoulder holster you were carrying your Model 15 in?

    Regards,
    Charlie

    There were two shoulder holsters issued during Vietnam for revolvers - both came through USAF channels and were relatively difficult to get 'through channels' - but you could trade for them...

    Both were black in color, one looked a lot like the standard M7 that was built for the .45, and they were built by 'Hunter' and had a DLA number - the second looked like the one seen above, and featured a spring clip - they made 2" concealment holsters from these, and they were unmarked.

    When I get back to my HOR, I know I have some leather still in bags that have their nomenclature tags - I'll post it.

    As an aside - Navy/Marine revolver holsters had sewn-in elastic loops - USAF holsters had a slide-on leather slide for spares, and it was marked.
