- deep east Texas
Stainless DA's pretty much stock. Holly grips on the Security Six.
My Flat Tops----(top) unaltered 357 with homemade cow bone grips. Single Six 22 with homemade Texas ebony grips. Wood came from a hurricane blowdown on the King Ranch. (Bottom) 44MAG, 7 1/2" barrrel. Homemade elk horn grips, reportedly from the biggest elk killed in Colorado in 1948.
NM Super Blackhawk---topstrap flattened, backstrap straightened, standard hammer, cow bone grips. Old model Blackhawk---topstrap flattened, gripframe polished, holly grips. Originally a 357, converted to 44 SPL by Alan Harton.
My Vaqueros---(from top) Big Vaquero 45 LC, horse bone grips. 2 New Vaqueros, both 45 LC, horse bone grips on blued gun, cow bone on stainless gun. All engraved (somewhat crudely) by me. Always wanted one of them shiny pistols with cattle brands engraved on it.
Another view of the Vaqueros.
And here they are again.
The Vaqueros in homemade holsters (commonly called "skalberts" here in east Texas.) Most useful is the IWB.
Here they are again with my sho-nuff carry gun and its homemade IWB.
