Gunsmoke did good
« on: June 02, 2016, 11:12:32 AM »
Hi, my wife and me have been watching the old B&W Gunsmoke videos on DVD. It was interesting to see in season 9 that the 1855 Colt Root percussion revolving carbine and Colt 1851 revolver were featured. We are getting to the end of the available DVDs, season 11. I hope they continue to release more of the old Gunsmoke programs, please.

There’s nothing better in the morning than the smell of bacon and black powder smoke!

Early TV and big screen Horse Operas often used a variety of authentic firearms in the making of the show.  The Root Revolving Rifle also appeared in a John Wayne film, "El Dorado". 

Knowledge carried to the grave unshared, is wasted.
