Alright folks, since the Cheyenne may just be my favorite 19th Century holster design, how’s about we start a thread. If this has been done before (I’m sure it has) then let’s make a new one to add to. Show off your favorite Cheyenne rigs and feel free to share any stories you have about making them.

I’ll start with one I just finished. I enjoy giving each holster I make a back story. I’ve always had an overactive imagination, but sometimes it can make a fairly repetitive task more entertaining.

This holster, belt and gun combo I like to think comes from around 1919 and might’ve  belonged to an old Line Rider in AZ. Former Rough Rider who kept his issued artillery model SAA. He’s about 65 years old and wears a rig that’s comfortable and familiar to him. A mix of Tom Rynning and Jeff Milton I suppose.

I know I’m probably a bit hokey, but it’s fun. Do any of y’all do the same with your projects?

Hope y’all are doing well and God bless!

I don't have a good story to go with this but it's one of a pair I made to wear when I first got into CAS. I left out the toe plugs thinking it was a good idea then but would put them in if I made them today. I have since changed my rig(s) to follow my likes but this was my first.



And this is the first rig I made for my wife. It's an olive pattern rather than a Cheyenne but it's still fun to look at. This rig is one of her favorites still.

Dang nice rigs Marshal, as always!

That olive pattern is great, Marshal.
