  1. Everything in this catalog is interesting but I found the gun section particularly interesting. The start around page 991. You can download the whole thing. https://ia800701.us.archive.org/29/items/LoganGreggHardwareCatNo30/Logan-Gregg Hardware Cat No 30.pdf
  2. Here are the numbers I was looking for. Colt Commercial Production: Govt. Model: 1912 to 1981 Model 1911Serial Numbers – Date – Number Made S/N C1 to C1899 – 1912 – 1899 S/N C1900 to C5399 – 1913 – 3500 S/N C5400 to C16599 – 1914 – 11,200 S/N C16600 to C27599 – 1915 – 11,000 S/N C27600 to C74999 – 1916 – 47,400 S/N C75000 to C98999 – 1917 – 24,000 S/N C99000 to C105999 – 1918 – 7000 S/N C106000 to C120999 – 1919 – 15,000 S/N C121000 to C126999 – 1920 – 6000 So it appears that by 1914 there was at least 5400 pistols on the civilian market. By the end of 1914, the year the movie is supposed to take place, there were 16,600.
  3. That’s crazy long to me. I would be upset.
  4. 1. Did Colt or the US Government limit who could buy a 1911 in 1913/1914 as depicted in the movie? I would like to find data stating so. 2. Were Winchester Model 92 or 94s used in the movie? Maybe both? How can one tell the difference on the silver screen between the two? My understanding is that 92s shot pistol cartridges and 94s shot rifle cartridges. — Answered. 3. I assume the crates of rifles stolen by the WB were filled with the Springfield ‘03. — Answered. 4. What model of machine gun was stolen and used? — Answered.
  5. I have a copy of a Colt SAA advertisement from the late 1800s that ran in Great Britain and they advertise it as ".45 US Cavalry".
  6. I had someone ask what lamb fries are. They are much like rocky mountain oysters, except these came from young male sheep when they are castrated and become wethers. So, lamb fries are sheep testicles that have been peeled, sliced, battered, and fried. It is a western delicacy normally had during roundups.
  7. I am at training in Oklahoma this week and the instructor recommended we try the Cattlemen’s Steakhouse in the old Stockyard City area of Oklahoma City. The main reason was because of the specialty, lamb fries. I had wanted to try them for 30+ years so I took a chance. To my surprise, they were excellent. Of special significance, the surrounding area has multiple western wear shops, boot sellers, hat makers, saddlers, an opry, and other related shops. If a CAS lover can’t find something to like within the two block area, I would be surprised. A world of caution, most of the shops close at 6pm. Langston’s stays open later and they are directly across from the Cattlemen’s. https://cattlemensrestaurant.com/ https://www.langstons.com/
  8. I would like to know how many pairs they sell a year.
  9. I'm hoping it is some sort of exotic frog that is much larger. But who knows. Look how many anaggas it takes to make an anagga-hide couch!
  10. Dang it! And I just sold my M1A in 7.6 Creedmore! I could have been one of the cool kids...
  11. If I ever win the lottery I'm going to buy a pair of their Cactus Sunset boots. http://www.jpsboots.com/oldwest.htm
  12. Here is my take; Rugers are safer at the loading table. Rugers do not need to have the hammer back to load. Just open the loading gate, load one, skip one, load four and close the gate. No carefully dropping the hammer down while making sure it's on an empty cylinder. If you do mess it up, just open the loading gate and turn it to the right spot and close the gate. Period. On non-Rugers the hammer has to be placed in the loading position and then carefully dropped on what is hopefully an empty cylinder. I have seen loaders accidentally drop the hammer when it slipped from under their sweaty thumb. I have also seen loaders not count correctly and lower the hammer down on a loaded cylinder. While I have only been playing CAS a year, I can foresee the two events happening together and then a gun is being fired at the loading table by accident. I own Colt clones and Rugers. I shoot both. Rugers are safer.
  13. We are driving an RV with a dingy, so they will need to be after we get set up in an RV park or something that caters to truckers.
