Um, did I really type that as a header of a post? Maybe I’m not as old as I thought. Or maybe, a Christmas present can make you feel a bit younger than you really are.
Right in the middle of working on an article about Nosler’s new Trophy Grade Rifle, the brown truck delivered a package from Galco today. A custom 1880’s rig in Havanah leather for my Ruger, 50th Anniversary, Flat Top Blackhawk. It is exquisite, even has my initials! Makes me feel like I was 10 again. You know, back when you played cowboys and Indians with dime store cap guns and plastic holsters.
This is a great rig and I have Mike Barham and the talented craftsmen at Galco to thank for it. It rides high – not like one of those movie cowboy rigs – and will allow me to tote my Blackhawk and plenty of ammo for my Ruger 77/357 rifle anywhere I go. And, I’ll look good too; at least from the waist down.
Here is a Christmas gift idea: If you know anyone that likes single action revolvers, give Galco a call and package up one of these rigs for them. On Christmas day they can gear up, step outside in the snow and saunter around like John Wayne while bust’n a cap or two.
Look for an upcoming article on this holster, revolver and Ruger’s new .357 Magnum bolt-action rifle. In the mean time, get geared up; you can kill zombies with a single action too. At least that’s what Bat Mann tells me.
Geez, I can’t believe I said that! Zombies again! What has come over me? Ah, to hell with it. I ant no writer. I’m going to strap this rig on and step out to my range. I do my best work there!
