Let us speak courteously, deal fairly, and keep ourselves armed and ready

Don't hit at all if you can help it; don't hit a man if you can possibly avoid it; but if you do hit him, put him to sleep."

Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far

Not a Colt in the bunch and the brassers are all true to the time.

I like the updated photo Fingers.   Even Johhnie should be able to appreciate a nice collection of Rebel firearms like these.   The confederate coat and extras is a nice backdrop too.
