Haven't ordered anything from them in years, but Starpacker is still listing them on their website.

Look at the old Time-Life series 'The Old West' and read 'The Lawmen'.

More specifically, look at the book "The Gunfighters" which contains a chapter entitled "The Man with the Badge."  Because to my knowledge, the Time-Life series did not contain a book called "The Lawmen." 

You will notice that most of the lawmen pictured are wearing "town clothes" except for those photos where they are actually on the trail.  Although it could be argued that they wore their fancy duds for the studio photo. 
The Leather Shop / Rawhide thong for holster edge
« Last post by Davem on Today at 05:25:04 PM »
Question. I want to make a western holster with the edge of the pouch held together with a whip stitched thong rather than stitched with linen thread.  I bought a tool from Tandy with slits but the slits are so far apart that there is a gap between the thong. 

Anyone suggest how to make a holster so there isn't a big gap between the wraps.

Scroll over the like button on the menu above the post and click on it.

Odd, but I don't see any such "Like Button" on the menu above the post.  Mine only shows "Quote", "Report to Moderator", or "Logged."

Question: is that cap box for a musket/rifle?  I ask because for revolvers I thought combustible cartridges were exclusively used.

RC John. Yes.  Silver knob.  The tip is what I was looking for.  Is that a brass tip or ferule? I was on Canesgalore site and they will do a brass tip as an add on.

You could always go the "DIY" route.  I needed a ferrule for a walking stick a few years ago and ordered one off eBay.  Just needed to know the diameter of the tip of the stick.

Books & Movies / Netflix: Justice and Badlands
« Last post by Tuolumne Lawman on Today at 02:45:09 PM »
Justice:  Low, low, low, low, low budget.  About a US marshal avenging his murdered brother who was a preacher.

Plot thin (like maybe original story was actually a comic book), and the guns....well in one scene the hero has a pot-metal replica SAA on the table later is using a brass frame 1860, and then has a pair of nickel plated SAAs or Vaqueros....  The ending, well lets say I laughed my a$$ off it was so improbable. On a ten scale, a 3-ish +or -.

Badlands:  Better, definitely higher budget. Historically a bit better, though some of the guns are too early for the 1869/1870 time frame.  About a Pinkerton Detective hunting Confederate war criminals.  Bruce Dern (a reformed bad guy) is excellent as always.  Story line is decent, acting is better than the stilted acting in Justice, and characters believable.  Enjoyed it thoroughly On a ten scale, I'd say a 6.5 to 7 as far as entertaining.
