Cowboy eras....

Most western lawmen in the mid-late 1800s, used a rifle & revolver in the same caliber. It was more efficient & the firearms could serve multiple uses in remote/rural areas.
In the early to mid 1900s, Im sure that tradition remained in many western states.
"Back-up" or aid could be hours away even in the 1940s.
To have a Hi-Power 9mm(P35) or a snub .38spl as a second gun would be smart.
