I didn't realize that most folk didn't know that folks in Texas have their "Fight'n Guns" and their "BARbque Guns and Leather".
BARbque Guns are usually real shiny and have ivory grips that are etched with the owners favorite name, initals, girlfriends name, or just MOM on them. BARbque leather is hand tooled by inmates at the Texas Department of Corrections and cost is always cheap to free for Rangers, DPS and other LEO. Most prized is leather that was worked by folks on Death Row that have been Texicuted for explicitly brutal crimes involving revenge for love gone sour or by crime spree killers.
Fight'n gun are not as demanding in appearence, but have one iron clad rule. They must work first time, every time and look good when the person who used them in defending the Honor of the State, his life, or the life of innocent persons is photographed by the news media.
Big knives are also important, but will be discussed at a later time.
I have bought each of my grandchildren (6 at this time) S&W Model 63s or nickle 34s. Great pistols to learn to shoot on and will be great guns for them to remember me by. I'll also give them a ton of other guns and ammunition when I croak, (if they have an intrest in shooting, etc. So far all of them are shooter, except the 7 month old).
Plus the knowledge to know how to and when to use them.
