    Longmire

    I was watching the Longmire show in A&E and was looking at the sidearm which Sheriff Walt Longmire was carrying. I am trying to figure out what make and model as it is definately a 1911. Anyone knows what Walt Longmire carries?

    It appears to be a standard Government Model with stags, no clue on the manufacturer.

    I enjoy the show, but I nearly choked on my spit when he went to measure a bullet hole in a corpse. He unholstered his gun, dropped the magazine, popped a round out and held it up to the entry hole and pronounced "yep, it was a .45," then jammed the mag back home. Where was his spare mag? Ah, Hollywood.

    Hell I about spit when I noticed he carried it with the hammer down and cocked it as he drew the gun,then dropped the hammer with his thumb on it and reholstered.I'm thinking sure he did without depressing the grip safety,or having his thumb slip off.
    Actually the last show it was an Officers model size looking at the holster and spare mag size,he was wearing a cuff case with mag pouch

    I got a funny feeling that somebody was curious enough and went to great lengths to figure it out and then posted it on a site that Google would find.

    The first issue irritated me when they where searching for someone who bought a gun that fired 45 70 and the shop owner said something like "oh well, the only guns that shoot that are old sharps carbines." I was thinking what about Rossi, Baikal, Henry, H&R, Ruger, and many other companies that have 45-70 rifles.

    While his pistol may be a standard gov model, his Hats are custom rolled for him!

    Dukalmighty, dropping the hammer from full cock on a standard 1911 with a spur hammer is easy one handed. If you rock the hammer all the way back it disengages the grip safety. Pulling the trigger at the same time will allow it to go forward. I don't advocate it being safe just saying it can be done. In the books, which are much better than the tv series, he carried Condition 1. I'm currently reading #7 in the series of 8 and there are a lot of differences but Craig Johnson is not a gun man much like Robert B. Parker with his novels.

    Exactly.

    I had to bite my tongue a few times when they were talking about archery also.

    For the amount of money that is spent on developing a TV series & the amount of that money at risk if the show tanks I can't understand why (for Pete's Sake) the producers wouldn't spend the small amount money for a gun-savy advisor to prevent even casual shooters from making fun of their technical miscues. Where's Mas Ayoob when all this goofy pistolcraft is being filmed? Heck, I'll go do it.

    I like the show, and have been reading some of the books, but I too have to remind myself it's just a show.

    Much like Criminal Minds, law & Order, Law & Order SVU and the other spin-offs. Just watch the shows and enjoy them. Newspapers are written on a 6th grade level for the most part. TV shows however I have not a clue.

    Correct, and it was a design feature stated by John Moses Browning in his patents. It's not something I do, but it was certainly intended by it's creator do be done that way at least occasionally.
