How many people on RT like western wear and have cowboy boots and/or hat ? I have three pair of boots myself and a brown leather cowboy hat. But I prefer a baseball cap actually . The leather hat usually doesn't look right on me. Would love to get a pair of dark cherry boots. .

No boots,

and I don't know if this is Cowboy, Western, Outback or *******.:confused::eek:

But You can usually catch me out on the farm ,with a hat like this, when I'm checking traps, or walking up to one of my game cameras.;):)

I've got about 5 pair of boots and 3 or 4 hats around. One pair I got from my grandma 27 years ago, as a present when I graduated high school. They're shark skin. Kind of out-of-style now, but I still wear them now and then. They'll have a place in my closet till the day I die because my grandma passed on a few years back and it's one of the few things I have left from her.

Shark skin boots are never out of style...

^ ^ ^ Yes you do have the gun. :Cooltu:

That's a good looking holster. Do you use a cartridge belt with it?

Nope, unfortunately I still don't have a cartridge belt.

I got that holster from a leather company when they were selling for $30. I should have bought more.....

As a rule...I don't post any nude photos of myself in chaps.

Once seen...they cannot be unseen !!

You're welcome !!

Around Houston I seldom see people wearing western wear such as boots and hats. At the clubs you will see almost all wearing the hats and boots but that's about the only place other than at rodeos or western events.
My cowboy hat has spent 99% of its time in the original box it came in 17 years ago. Personally I never cared much for the look of cowboy hats. For dress up I did wear a pair of black cowboy boots.

As far as boots go, I'm not a by fan of square toes. Had a pair and I didn't wear them much cause they never looked right to me. I normally wear a pair of brown Justin rural king specials to town and a pair of black American west to church. I've only worn my leather hat three of four times.

Thanks Lucian...

It's a hoot to shoot too...!!

Sold as a pistol with a 12" barrel, not as an SBR, it's quite quick into action.

It holds 5+1 of .44 Magnum or Special...and while not a long range weapon...
can be extremely deadly up within 25 yards.

That long barrel allows extreme terminal velocity to be achieved by that powerful cartridge.
