Some might view the 1911 pistol as dated technology. to each their own, but i think this is a badass setup. #repost @the_classic_outdoorsman

blued steel and leather. 1911s are a passion of mine, this @remingtonarmscompany has done exceptionally well for it's price point. paired with a @miltsparksholsters summer special that looks as good as it works.

It was early october 1950, the boy had set his alarm clock for 6am. when the old westinghouse went to buzzing his eyes shot open, stretching and yawning he eased out of bed and into his clothes. a pair of levis cuffed over his buster browns just like the cowboys did, and his heavy wool pendleton coat his parents bought him this year for his 15th birthday. the red and black plaid jacket was synonymous with hunting. now his was just like his father's and grandfather's. he'd cleaned his winchester model 75 sporter the night before. my how he loved that rifle, he won it in the 1949 open road for boys shooting contest, it was the first prize award. he cleaned it every chance he got, even if someone looked at it, it got rubbed down with hoppes no. 9. he figured he'd spend the day tramping through the north georgia hills searching for his favorite game, the gray squirrel. first though he needed to get supplies, so he hopped on his bicycle and into town he went. harper's hardware store was only a couple of blocks from home, and they had just about everything a fellow could want. new scout hatchets, pocket knives, rifles, shotguns and pistols. the boy just loved to look, it was rare that he could ever buy anything. the few quarters and dimes he made from his paper route always went to the movies on saturday, but he always kept some money put back for bullets and such. he walked up to the counter and asked old man charlie for a box of peters hollow point .22 long rifle cartridges. today he was a big spender, the hollow points cost an extra 7 cents, that made the total 77 cents. mr. charlie asked.
"up aweful early for a weekend aren't you boy?" "sure am mr. charlie, you know what they say, 'early bird gets the worm.' in this case it'll be a mess of squirrels." mr. charlie laughed, the boy reminded him of himself all those years ago. when the boy got home his mother had breakfast fixed. big fluffy hotcakes with cane syrup and butter. bacon and eggs, a meal fit for a woodsman. after cleaning his plate and downing his milk and orange juice he grabbed his rifle, hat and backpack and out the door he went. his mother following behind him, standing in the door and yelling to him.

I collect old hunting magazines for multiple reasons. for nostalgia, study material, and for the simple fact that the writers of yesteryear were cut from a different cloth. my hands down favorite gun writer was skeeter skelton. as far as legendary writers go, he came a little later in the game. some of his first articles were published during the 1950's however he didn't become a house hold name until the 1970s. his articles were some of the finest reading anyone can ask for, but his hipshots column was absolute gold. i normally don't go for magazine issues published after 1960, but i do snag any copy of shooting times i can find if it has a skeeter article in it.

the single action army is a timeless pistol, its robust design and perfect ergonomics make it an absolute joy to shoot. it handles my .45 colt loads well, with relatively light recoil and suprising accuracy. if operated correctly the single action army is every bit as relevant today as it was in 1873, proving that good things don't have an expiration date. have a good weekend folks and don't forget to get out and shoot. i. starting a little early as always.

This was how elmer keith said, i keep that mf thang on me.
a man of infinite wisdom, elmer keith is often extremely misunderstood by the modern age. there have been many gun writers over the years, but not one of them could compare to the experience and influence within the gun industry that mr. keith had.
and btw, seeing that #5 in person was spellbinding to say the least. i feel so fortunate to have been able to gaze upon that many, many times.

Man i miss those mornings. the cool, crisp wyoming air, a mug of hot, black coffee, and the invigorating feeling of being alive. it was hard, exhausting work but i loved every minute of it. i woke up every morning ready to face another day and the beautiful absoroka mountains. every time i think about that country, see a picture or watch the videos i took, i feel a sharp feeling of loneliness. a longing to be back there. when folks ask what it was like leaving. the answer is always the same. it's like finding the most beautiful woman in the world, falling in love and then saying goodbye.... #wyoming #beauty #mornings #america #ranchwork #mountains #rockies #snowcapped #coffee #truewild #wilderness #nature #theamericanwest #theclassicoutdoorsman #thestrenuouslife #bullmoose

On the morning of february 15, 1900 the sun broke over the arizona desert. jeff milton worked the dangerous job of a wells fargo express agent. on that day he was working the train run from nogales, arizona, to benson. along the way the train made a stop in the small town of fairbank. while unloading the cargo at the depot, milton saw an unusual sight, 5 cowboys held several townsfolk as shields in front with rifles leveled at the seasoned lawman. they ordered milton to turn over the wells fargo money and back away. milton replied by grabbing a winchester model 1887 10 gauge shotgun and telling them to come get it. knowing he couldn't shoot the cowards without hitting innocent civilians he held his fire, the thieves on the other hand didn't. 5 cowboys opened up with their rifles, bullets tore through milton's shirt and into his left arm, he spun around and fell to the ground. the thieves thought they had killed him, and two approached the car. bleeding and writhing in pain milton raised the shotgun and fired sending a load of buckshot into the chest of one and into the posterior of the other. the would be robbers fell for cover, in the ensuing lull jeff kicked the safe door shut and wrangled the keys from his pocket, locked the door, then tossed the keys away just before he collapsed from blood loss. the criminals circled the train car riddling it with bullets, before forcing their way inside. they saw the unconscious lawman and left him for dead. after searching frantically for the keys they gave up and managed to get away with $40. jeff milton was rushed to a hospital and survived his wounds, while not having to amputate, he would permanently lose the use of his left arm. though crippled, the gunfighting adventures of jeff milton were far from over... #oldschool #oldwest #jeffmilton #legendarylawman #thestrenuouslife #theclassicoutdoorsman #legendarylawman #jeffmilton #agoodmanwithagun #oldschool #oldwest #texasranger #mustache #sixgun #thestrenuouslife #theclassicoutdoorsman

Today i had the pleasure of sitting with my good friend who is a reporter for a local newspaper while he interviewed charles speight. mr. speight flew 56 combat missions over the pacific in a f6f "hellcat" during the closing days of the second world war. he joined the navy late and was shipped out to the pto in january of 1945 making it just in time to fly missions during the invasion of iwo jima and later during the invasion of okinawa. for his heroic actions in the skies he was awarded 4 air medals and 2 distinguished flying crosses. he is currently 96 years old and going strong. after we left he went to see the local team play softball, he's a lover of sports having played baseball most of his life. the only thing he seemed to have more of a passion for than the hellcat or baseball is teaching sunday school at his church. he has taught every sunday for 62 years. he said that was the biggest blessing of his life. thank you for everything mr. speight.

Over the past few weeks i've done posts on some old school lawmen, mostly fbi agents. the posts were well received and i got lots of questions. in answering these to the best of my humble knowledge i hope i introduced some of these heroes to others. i will be showcasing a legendary lawman frequently in the future. this is jeff davis milton, one of the best lawmen in american history. he was born in sylvania, florida on november 7, 1861 to former confederate governor of the state general john milton. at the age of 15, jeff moved to texas where he tried his hand at minding a store, and cowboying but his interests ultimately found him lying about his age and joining the texas rangers.... i will continue jeff milton's story in a series of future posts, it cannot be condensed into one.

As all you know i love good gunleather. i'm having american classic gunleather make me another rig and while i was looking through some of the work they have done in the past, i couldn't stop looking at this rig. this is their copy of jerry campbell's holster he used during his days as an fbi agent. acg does absolutely wonderful work with top quality leather and service. next time you're needing hide for your handgun look them up. they have a facebook page with all past projects on it. if you're like me, you'll be in hog heaven.

Outdoor life/outdoor recreation - november 1927.

the beautiful cover art on this magazine was by the immortal phillip goodwin. goodwin was famous for painting pictures of outdoorsmen right on the edge of disaster. normally his paintings depicted a man soon to start a close relationship with a mountain lion or a bear. his work was used my many ammunition and rifle companies on advertisements, in my opinion he's the norman rockwell of hunting and the wild.
