Case for SAA
« on: October 02, 2020, 07:11:28 AM »
Just received this case made by Bill Schumate [ http://billscases.com ] for my Colt that was made in 1890. This is the 2nd case he has made for me. His work is beautiful and I believe fairly priced. Looking around now and doing some research for something appropriate to fill the empty area. The cartridges are blanks but I have some on order as I intend to shoot it once or twice.
I thought, growing old would take longer !

I've spent most of my money on guns and fly rods.  The rest I just wasted.

The gun is beautiful and in excellent condition for its age. It looks right at home in that new case too.

i had posted in the Buy, Sell, Trade forum that I was looking for some accessories to fill the case for my SAA. Got some good suggestions and then departed a bit from the tools concept and thought of what else would maybe appropriate. Looking around on the internet I came up with a few other ideas and asked myself how might a retired law enforcement person keep his old side arm that he had for so many years. Well, he'd probably put it up with his old pocket watch, pen knife and maybe some arrowheads that he'd found along the way. So I did some looking around and shopping on the internet and found some arrowheads, pen knife and a pocket watch that I think fit nicely..... and his Wells Fargo Agent's Badge.
