Wireman,

Bill is an INDIAN and therefore can possess feathers from raptors.  The rest of us get a "Go to jail" card if we have one.

That's why mine is a painted turkey feather.  Don' wanna push the little luck I do have. Shocked

Looks good, OCB.  Love that rifle!

(Congrats on the weight loss.  I for one know that it isn't as easy to remove as it is to add.  Oh, and the chin strap is quite visible.)

TL....Dave and I hope to leave on Sunday morning the 12th. We start filming on the 16th so that will give us a couple days to get acclimated to the weather and meet some of you folks down there. I don't know if I mentioned it or not, but Dave is a Indianapolis Police officer and has been growing a period correct mustache and chin whiskers for this film and boy has he been getting an eye from the folks at work! Dave is near retirement and pretty much has told them to shove it! He is really excited about being in this film.

Hey, I've got Tascosa Joe's phone number but I don't have your contact information. If you want you can email it to me.

Buckskin, I like that tintype. You look like a Missourah bushwacker.

I wish I had the tintype of my GGGrandfather (the real Wild Billy Potts) in Texas in the 1870s. Y'all would get a big kick outta it.

Del.......I think Custers baldness was accelerated quite a bit at Little Big Horn Grin Grin

Bill

The savages did not scalp nor partake in their standard practice of mutilation of Custer. Some say it was because he had a relationship with an indian woman and was considered a relative by many of them. The only mutilation was, his eardrums were pearced, supposedly so he could hear better in the afterlife.

Glad you like it, bit I have to admit that I have fudged the jacket I am wearing. It is a custom made copy of the Charlie Prince jacket from the latest 3.10 to Yuma. It is leather and is a great jacket but not exactly authentic.  Wink

I do have a nice wool Frock Coat that I wear as well.

JH,
I notice the B-cowboy horse has a tie down. They are used a lot now days, esp. in action type riding.  Did the cowboys use tie downs in the late 1800's? Never paid much attention to it before. Just wondering.

Deadeye: I suspect no self respecting cowboy ever used a tie-down. Despite riding a slick mother hubbard saddle these guy's could probably stick to anything a horse could bring their way. A horse who was throwing its head about to a cowboys annoyance most likely got the stiff end of the quirt or a coil of rope slapped across its head. Horses were not back yard pets to them, they were a working tool, and they had string to work with.

While a tie down works well in an arena, in rough country a horse needs its head to balance with - not to mention catching the tie down in brush or whatever. Quick turns and turn around while roping in open country do not bode well for a tie down. After several seasons of using a tie down in mounted shooting, I ceased. It certainly didn't improve my scores.

The first photo I'm wearing a pair of riding trousers I made from a pattern, the shirt I got from Gander Mountain about 25 years ago, the belt and holster are my 'working rig' that I wear when I'm out working on the property, the boots, well, not p.c. Mastersons, the hat I made from an old Tandy pattern.the pistol is a 61 navy with simulated ivory grips and Marlin Cowboy Special Limited Edition in .45

Second photo the shirt I made from a Buckaroo Bobbins pattern, the same hat, gunbelt and holster I made from a modified buscadero pattern,Navy Arms Bisley  , 94 Winchester Trapper in .357, the mocs I made from a pattern for 'plains style high-tops', the trousers are elk. Shirt, trousers and mocs are all left-overs from my buckskinning days.

RCJ,

What is the black luggage you are carrying opposite the carpet bag in the 1873 jail picture.  What was it used for
and what is it made of.

Hi

I currently live in Oklahoma where it's NICE and warm, it's September 26th and it was 95 Degrees F yesterday.  I'm looking at getting stuff together for CAS.  Is the Frontier Classics canvas vest and pants going to last a while?  I had seen a picture of a pair from one of their rivals and you could see through the fabric.  If I turn out to REALLY like CAS, I'll probably go to Wool next year.

I found what I'm after on Tonto Rim's site.

Thanks

I get a couple years out of the pants before I patch them and keep wearing them where I don't have to look as good.  That is wearing them all the time, I put more wear on a pair in a month than most will in a year, think Carhartt and how well they wear.  Their lighter ones I get a little over a year, those are the striped ones.  To be honest with you either will last longer than these modern, half worn out pre-washed jeans that everyone thinks they need.

These are 19th century pants from the pattern by Laughing Moon. They have cross pockets, button fly, welt pockets at the rear and a back-strap.
