Old West Guns and Their Employers

Gary told me on another forum that this fits in the BP area, most appropriately. So hopefully it's okay to also post here on The Firing Line.

I post sketches on various gun forums dealing with guns and guns users during the period of roughly 1800-1940 in the U.S.

I threw together a page and forum.

If there is any interest:

click "Forum"

Thanks and if it's not allowed please delete.

I'll be stopping by and joining that forum!

It is VERY difficult to read though....that background has got to be improved?
thanks for starting the site up though....looks like it will be fun!

Be glad to have you!

However, the background will not be changed. I am fine with it, overall. I do realize that opinions can differ vis-a-vis aesthetics or more accurately, what one can and cannot distinguish well. Another fellow here has voiced the same problem.

Not everything is for everybody. So it's fine. God bless you and have a nice Sunday.

Now it's back to work on Deacon Jim and Bud Frazer Death Feud.

I have improved the site some as to volume of content and background In the last 5 weeks we have cobbled together a lot of data, after an inital hiccup on February 6th. . .

Still the same raison d'etre. Give it a look.

Obliged for any interest.

I carried a pair of Colt .45's on-duty for years and I was viewed as a 'throwback' to the old west, even in modern day California....

I keep saying "those were the days," but that was as recent as March 2011...

History is impressive.

Thanks for bringing a piece of it to light.
