    Locally, we get Cheyenne qet 4 AM, Maverick at 5, Wanted, Dead or Alive at 6, Paladin at 7, and Rawhide at 8 AM. On the H&I channel. Johnny Western, who was in one episode and wrote the theme song became a good friend of Richard Boone. He said Boone could shoot, but that he was not a fast draw. Filming the episode Western outdrew Boone, but the editors worked their magic and had Boone outdraw Western and shot Johnny dead. The episode: The Return of Dr. Thackeray. Featured a young & beautiful June Lockhart.
    Our local line up (evenings) on Starz is Gunsmoke, Death Valley days. Maverick, Cheyenne, Lawman, The Virginian. Not to mention all the great westerns during the day (movies not shows). I can tell you that my kids hate it that all we watch anymore are westerns. They complain and talk over the TV. Funny thing is they have no problem playing with our cowboy guns...

    I thought his first name was "Wire", too when we watched reruns every night in the late '60s. My big brother laughed and called me an idiot when I said that was a weird name. And as usual when the subject comes up here's the envelope with Paladin card and stuff Ojala sent me in 1985 (a prized posession). I ordered a rig from him and told him on the phone I had a tape of "The Oregon Trail" where he spins a Walker. He asked for a copy and sent $5 in that envelope. He said it was the only film he was in where he had dialog.

    In R.L. Wilson's book The Peacemakers, page 337 there is a photo of one of Paladin's guns. The stocks are plain, one piece. The frame looks to be CCH and is a smokeless style frame. The front sight has been filed down to just a few mm high. It is accompanied by two of the famous business cards, one having Boone's autograph on the reverse side. Likely there were several prop guns used throughout the series run.

    A few months ago an episode of "Have Gun Will Travel" aired that explained how Paladin became a bounty hunter. I am not sure if its was the very first episode or not. Story line was Paladin was a gambler who lost a bet. To clear the debt he had to kill a man. The man he had to kill wore the same black outfit that Paladin wore in the later episodes and Paladin was dressed as a San Francisco gambler. Anyone else see that episode?

    It was the first episode of the sixth season called "Genesis" that told Paladin's story. It never said his real name nor background...just he had to pay off a gambling debt and ended up assuming the name "Paladin" as that's what the man he was supposed to kill called him. Richard Boone played both parts...his and the person he was to kill.

    Yeah, I saw that one. The guy he killed looked just like Paladin, with gray hair and a bad cough.
    Was at the Cody Museum last month and they had Paladin's gun and holster outfit, plus Marshall Dillion's and the Cartwright clan's. Notice the caliber on the card says 44-45.

    That's the gun already mentioned as being in the R.L. Wilson book, but that holster is for a double action sixgun with a shorter barrel.

    Since it's your photo, would you be willing to contact Cody and voice your concerns?

    Don't get me started. The first gun I saw was a k22 with PC style grips, not correct. In the next case was a 5" K32 with Roper stocks. PROBABLY not original, but no mention of the RARE bbl or the custom grips. Then I saw a 357 listed as a 22LR. ON the other side of the case was a 22LR listed as a 357 Magnum. On a second trip around, i saw them again and realized the cards were switched. I started looking to see how many errors i could spot, instead of fine original guns. Also surprised to see many turnbull redos, although they were listed as such. It was a great trip and overall loved the Cody museum, but they could do a better job describing the items.
