It's a posed but looks like an impromptu taken picture. Looks like Colt New Service and for sure a SAA with wood grips. Hey! Maybe that's Charles M. Russell on the left!!

    If that's a photo from the early 20s. You got yourself a true bona fide bootlegger in front of the camera.

    Is that a pet (or deceased) snake around that man’s neck?

    This one was made about 1866 of a friend's ancestor's store. Looks like it was the community gathering place. The family maintained a store in the small community up until the 1970's. Staples was the family name, but quite appropriate for a store.

    Many years ago while rummaging through the ruins of my grand-dad's black smith shop I came across a bottle the same as these gents are in possession of. According to mom, it contained "horse medicine" originally, but with most things back then, it was probably recycled and used for other purposes. It wouldn't surprise me a bit to learn the bottle I found contained some of grand-dad's hard cider after the horse medicine was gone. I have the bottle on a shelf in the dining room now, and grand-dad's New Service in the safe, but he certainly ain't the man in the above photograph, (though they may have gotten along well in their day).
