Thanks!Agreed, one of the articles from the last few issues..well done Alan!
The Forehand and Wadsworth advertisement said something about needing to carry their Bulldog in the streets of New York.What a proper British gentleman would have carried in case of ruffians or a carraige-jacking? View attachment 847102
Thanks. When I was at the Bordertown match in Tombstone, I got it in my mind that I wanted a Faro table as a background with older chips. I decided to make my own table and found a bunch of old chips on eBay.

"When we think of the wild and woolly west, most of us envision cowboys, lawmen and outlaws packing full-frame Colt, Remington and Smith & Wesson revolvers. In the wild regions of the west, packing a big-bore full-frame pistol was important but carrying a weapon in many growing towns and cities was prohibited. More often than not, weapons were smaller and hidden from view. Then, like now, a small pocket pistol was preferred and the public had plenty to choose from — good, bad and ugly."
Excellent article from Colt Forum Member Alan Garbers about early western pocket pistols learned something, figured I would share-good stuff!
And this picture is better than any others in the article!!! Thanks for posting it.View attachment 847108
This photo didn't make it in the article. You may recognize the woman who played Big Nose Kate in Tombstone. She used a Bulldog in the scene with Doc in Prescott, saying something like "Touch that gun and I'll burn you down!"
