  1. The Bullet Hole is in Delaware County, Town of Andes, near the hamlet of Andes.

  2. Was going to reply, but realized you said WEST of Catskills, and in my mind (not a good place) I had pictured EAST, near me in Kingston. But I'll ask anyway- Where IS Bullet Hole? And I'll answer the original question anyway. When I first heard of SASS and cowboy shooting, I was a couple of years out of college, State U. of New York at Utica. Shortly thereafter, I saw a Jimmy Stewart movie, Night Passage, on TV. Audie Murphy played Jimmy's outlaw brother, the Utica Kid. Hey, I know where that is. When I got interested in SASS, I applied for that name. Nope, taken. Well, I lived in Red Hook, NY. How about Red Hook Kid? Mmmm, 38 y.o., not so much a kid. Red Hooker, like the CW General? OK, open to possible misinterpretation. Nah, all the guys I've met in this game are, well, "mature", they won't joke about it. Yeah. Well, after some initial ribbing, it was OK. A couple of years later, I found out that I had Native American ancestors. OK, that accounts for "Red". In honor of my father (and some other relatives) I made Red ex USN.
  3. As these historically-correct pants usually only have one back pocket, I had the cut-off bits saved and turned into the other pocket.
  4. Bat's copy boy was Damon Runyon, who would later write stories about Broadway in the Roaring 'Twenties and the 'Thirties, including "The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown" which would be made into the play and movie "Guys and Dolls" with Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando. Brando's character "Sky Masterson" was supposedly based on.....guess?
  5. Colts That Weren’t: Some Were Legal, Most Were Forgeries By Lee A. Silva 1/11/2018 • Wild West Magazine Many copies saw use in the Mexican revolutions. When I was buying antique guns in Mexico during the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s, I hauled dozens of old, well-worn copies and forgeries of Colt single-action revolvers back to the United States. But I had to sell them dirt cheap, because very few collectors cared enough about them to add them to their Colt collections. And they still don’t care much about them today.....................(one copy is marked ANIT & CHAR, for “Anitulla & Charolla,” a European gunmaker)....................... Also mde early semi autos
  6. Knock-off; see pics in attachments, esp. top line of grip, and pin at front of lower member of frame window does not exist on Colt. http://www.collectorsfirearms.com/colt-new-line-32-c12893/ http://www.collectorsfirearms.com/colt-new-line-32-caliber-c4092/
  7. Saw Longshot Logan shoot that combo at a match in RI. But then, he had a bit of a sense of humor. Anybody have one of his Photoshops to post? Of course, the match was Blazing Saddles-themed.
  8. "An armed society is a polite society." Science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein, quoting ...uh, some French philosophe.
  9. 'Long as I'm posting IMDB links for pretty girls...... http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000368/bio
