Both the Remington and Colt were mentioned in various biographies and histories as pistols carried in a chaps pocket by working cowboys (a role in some cases later filled by various .32 autos).  They weren't carried for offensive use, or known for excessive power, but you can find accounts of them being used to turn a charging steer, finish off injured livestock, and for impromptu shooting matches.  They also figured in more than a few (usually drunken) disputes between cowhands, or cowhands and townies.
