Agreed.  I seem to remember from way back in the day when I used to go into bars and various other places of ill repute, people who dress and act in such a way as to make an impression on others usually accomplish their goal.   :coffee

So, we're talking back when dirt was big rocks, right?   :neener

    Yup.  No dirt at all back then.   All that cleaning stuff came along much later.    :cool

    There was only one rock back then, youngster.

    There's an old country ballad, I think by Willie Nelson (not certain).  But it's about a cowboy, sitting in a bar, and some biker starts razzing him about his hat, the biker even goes so far as to threaten to knock the hat off the cowboy's head.  The cowboy tells the story of every item, where he got the hat, the hatband, etc.  At the end, he looks at the biker, and says something along the lines of, "If that vest means as much to you, as this hat means to me, best you just leave it alone."  So, yeah, we tend to hold onto things, because of the memories.

    Yep. I have a Dillon Aero gunbelt that I wear daily because it's a hand me down from dear old Dad. It's old, worn, and the brass has become green with verdigris. He had it hanging in his closet, unused these days, because he "outgrew" it in his 30's I think.

    On the other end of the spectrum, we also had a family friend whom was an older gentleman and fellow gun nut. I didn't know him real well, due to illness taking him when we only knew each other for a couple years, but he had no children at all. When he passed, I purchased his every day carry Glock 23 to help his wife with funds. I don't shoot or carry it often, but I keep it tucked away in the back of the safe just for sentimentality. He seemed like a really cool dude, we just didn't have much time to get acquainted.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.
