Lately I have been watching Laurel and Hardy movies on youtube.
I have noticed that often one can see what look like Colt revolvers that the 'cops' pull out as they chase these scoundrels. A very common occurrence. LOL..

Not so much a firearms related thing...an episode of the 1970 version of "What's My Line" with the real Lone Ranger...Clayton Moore. He's carrying his Colts but they're not mentioned. It makes me wonder how he would be received today packing heat (even prop heat) on a studio set...probably not well. He was a class act.

My Dad's second oldest Brother was in World War I. I think he mentioned to me that he was in the Red Arrow Division, whatever that was. My Uncle was naturally tough, owned several bars and many other properties, and I remember he always carried a Colt .45 acp semi-auto in a shoulder holster. He carried large amounts of cash, and I know of at least two or three times he had shot people trying to rob him. Since he had a ccw he never had any problems with law enforcement. He had carried that same Colt since he came back from the War. He carried that Colt up until he died in 1990 at the ripe old age of 95. A very interesting guy, and a very cool Uncle.
Aside from the name of the show, which I really think keeps people from discovering it, it's well written and produced. MY best description is Goodfellas meets Godfather Part II in post WWI England. A family/gang of gypsy thugs make their way up the underworld ladder. Point being, aside from the ultra violence and often times unnecessary profanity, it's worth checking out.
The reason I'm posting and to keep this on-topic...If I haven't sold the show at this point, whoever is their firearms "coach" on the set does a fantastic job. The main character seems to favor the 1911, a Lewis Gun seems to show up from time to time, countless Webley Revolvers, last night I spotted an FN 1910 in a drawer...the list goes on.
I just binge watched the last three seasons. Great show and some very cool guns. Lots of Webleys and SMLEs, but plenty of others. Tommy Shelby favors a 1911 in the laters seasons, and Arthur is fond of his K-frame Smith. Once Aberama Gold shows up he totes an SAA and a suspiciously modern looking Marlin lever gun.
I believe Arthur's is an N frame in .455 Webley. The last episode featured a Pattern 14 Enfield.
