Just Kidding. The photo below is of me and Smiley Burnette. It was taken in Selma, Alabama in 1953. ...

Oh George... Those are some great photo's!
And a fine holster you got there to say the least!
At that age... how could you afford good leather not to mention fine ivory grips on that hog leg? You must have had a good paying job!
Thanks for the post!

Congratulations on a great find! What a nice piece of history to have and use!
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

Great find Gary. Glad to hear you're up and around, though I'd hardly call those hours "part time." Be careful with those 70 hour weeks, you'll end up right back in the hospital if you don't watch it.
Slings and cases on the horizon? Can't wait to see pics of the new gear. Give us a heads up when they're available for ordering (though Coal Creek I'm assuming).

That was a good story Gary. I have always liked Gene Autrey. In fact, one of my favorite Christmas albums to this day was done by him!

I grew up listening to Gene Autrey. Keep that thing in good condition. It's a piece of history for sure.

Great story Gary, and George the teacher tried to make me write right handed also. My dad visited with her and they decided that since I did things either handed sometimes to let me do what come natural to me. Today I write left, throw right, eat left, wrench mostly right but do either, and shoot either.

Will we see you with it on the Antique Roadshow anytime soon? Get provenance :) I know my Brommeland holsters are going to appreciate like Picaso's.
