Two Old Model Ruger .45s and a pair of vintage handmade inlaid Crockett spurs (http://www.theoriginalcrockettbitandspurcompany.com/history.html) from around 1930. You can see the Crockett stamp under the strap button on one of them.

Spurs courtesy of Montana Dave, who was kind enough to sell them to me for probably a fifth of what they're really worth.

Love old bits and spurs, and when mixed with sixshooters, well,.... :D :D :D Dr.C

Some old things just seem to go together, don't they? Old sixguns, old cowboy paraphernalia, things with a patina to them...and when I say patina, I'm referring to a physical patina and a historical one. In my mind, I can see some Depression-era cowboy/ranch hand wearing those spurs during his workday. I can't see his face, but I see the scene as a whole, as sort of a tableau in my head.

It seems the older I get, the more I like old things.
