I have had a number of Hardy holsters. Very nice. Born 1876, died 1950. Amazing the changes in the world he would have seen in his lifetime. Probably more changes in a person's lifestyle in that period of living than any other time in history. The Frontier, WW1, the roaring 20s, prohibition, the depression, WW2, post war prosperity. Horses to cars and airplanes, telephones, electric lights, radio, television, etc. A lot to see in a lifetime.
