    I keep eyeing them, I want to get one for my SAA. Only problem no where I can carry it like that. I guess I could walk around the house and play Lone Ranger, lol. Nice rig you have by the way. I like the drop loop style myself, kinda like the "Hollywood" gunslinger styles. One day I will get one.

    I like the SAA and the charcoal burners too. I grew up on westerns and think that "instinct shooting" has it's place in the grand scheme of things. Starting with the Navy Colt there is a progression that can be followed right up to today. It gives you perspective on historical figures that worked with what they had at the time. Well, I guess we could start with slings and atlatls for that matter. LOL! The longer the barrel the more valuable a low drop buscadero is. You'll find one to play Lone Ranger with around the house and then take it out in the wild back country and enjoy it.

    I had 4 single actions when I used to compete in SASS matches but they have hit the dusty trail. If anyone though finding leather for modern pistols was tough, Single Actions are worse.

    I spend 15 yrs. making SAA fast draw rigs. Inspired by spaghetti westerns and being born in Europe, with no way to buy any there, I got into leather works. I made exact copies of Andy Anderson, Arvo Ojala, Alfonso etc.
    Today I laugh of how my mother kept saying, that she would send me to an institition for troubeled kids. One has to understand that this was in a socialist anti american setting and time.
    Anyway, I spend over 20 yrs. with fast draw and gun spinning. Actually got into a danish mini western that was shown on TV back in the 80's, as the "gun guy" etc. It all ended well, and now here in beautiful America making fine custom 1911's trained by the best in the business.
    Oh'e those memories....

    Since the lgs low balled me yesterday on trading my blackhawk, I'm gonna start shopping for a cowboy rig. You have a nice looking 1. Only problem is I'm hellbent on getting another 1911 in the near future so the cowboy rig is gonna have to wait. I like the way yours comes up around the top of the gun, seems as though it won't fall out as easily.
