    My "The Wild, Wild West" survival kit

    In memory of Robert Conrad, one of my two favorite TV guys growing up (besides Vic Morrow in "Combat!"), here's a picture I took a few years ago. I bought that DVD box set of the TV show hoping I wouldn't think it was stupid now that I'm older. But it's still great because it was so campy in the first place like "Lost In Space" was. Actually, I sold that 1990 .45 to get another one I wanted more.

    One of my favorite shows too. Yes Conrad just passed away.
    The better shows had the "Wild Wild West" version of Bond's Blowfeld, the evil Dr. Loveless.

    Don't forget "Bah, Bah, Black Sheep"

    In one episode Dr. Loveless was packing a Colt Sheriff's Model. Probably one of those 1960 Centennial Arms guns that didn't sell well and are very expensive now.

    I think I heard or read that holster maker Andy Anderson made two pairs of grips with sterling silver snakes in the grips. One in walnut for Clint Eastwood, and one in ebony for Robert Conrad. He has his 4 3/4" Colt in a longer holster because there was a trapdoor in the bottom where he kept whatever secret agent gadget he needed at the moment. Also in his boot heel, of course.

    I loved Wild Wild West but Conrad's wardrobe disturbed me as a young boy. Cowboys just didn't dress like that !

    He wasn't a cowboy, he was with the Secret Service and that's how the agents dressed! I don't know how he did the stunts he did in that skin tight outfit. I liked the show as a kid but thought it was hokey. I watch once in a while now and it's still corny, but it was meant to be so that's ok.

    The western version of Derek Flint or Matt Helm, also corny and that's ok too. It was good entertainment.

    Robert Conrad was also in "Hawaiian Eye" one of those early Warner Bros. series that included "77 Sunset Strip" and "Route 66"
