Nice. Found where there was a Lloyd A. Snarr that owned a leather shop in Chattanooga, he was born about 1892 in Oklahoma. This is from the 1920 city directory.

I only have wheel guns, but between MtnSpur with his 3 little gems and this nice looking piece, with leather no less, I may have to expand my horizons?!!!

I'm a bad influence :) FWIW at a show yesterday I picked up another M1908 Vest Pocket .25 (refinished but done very well and the price was right) with original mag and Colt holster and a M1903 .32 all original that was a lovely patina with shiney bores and strong lands and grooves on both. Functionally both are still tight and cycle reliably so I've bumped the count to 5 semi autos now. I'm a sick man ;) but in my defense I had sold a Mitchell Arms imported, Uberti made .45LC/.45 ACP last week that had last been shot 6 years ago so it all worked out. I will take some pictures once cleaned up but all in all, not a bad outing. I do believe therapy simply would be a waste of money and time that could be better directed towards...more of these gems? :eek:
