A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in North America, traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. The historic American cowboy of the late 19th century arose from the vaquero traditions of northern Mexico and became a figure of special significance and legend. A subtype, called a wrangler, specifically tends the horses used to work cattle. In addition to ranch work, some cowboys work for or participate in rodeos. Cowgirls, first defined as such in the late 19th century, had a less-well documented historical role, but in the modern world have established the ability to work at virtually identical tasks and obtained considerable respect for their achievements. There are also cattle handlers in many other parts of the world, particularly South America and Australia, who perform work similar to the cowboy in their respective nations.
The cowboy has deep historic roots tracing back to Spain and the earliest European settlers of the Americas. Over the centuries, differences in terrain, climate and the influence of cattle-handling traditions from multiple cultures created several distinct styles of equipment, clothing and animal handling. As the ever-practical cowboy adapted to the modern world, the cowboy's equipment and techniques also adapted to some degree, though many classic traditions are still preserved today.
I'm ready to pull the trigger (pun intended) on a 357 lever gun. Right now I have three options:
1. Henry Big Boy Steel Side Gate with the big loop lever (bottom of first picture)
Option #2 : Henry Big Boy Case Hardened Side Gate (Top of picture)
Option #3: Cimarron 1873...

Last year I bought the new Ruger Wrangler and absolutely love it. The little 22LR revolver quickly became my favorite plinker.
However I've spent the last seven months looking for a decent holster. The options are surprisingly sparse and the few on the market either didn't fit my...

Selling a pair of 3 screw single-action Rugers my dad bought in the 1950s or 1960s. One is .357 Magnum, the other in .22LR. They shoot silky smooth and are quite collectible. There was a factory recall to make them "safer" which would have resulted in making them have a far less smooth action...
LNIB Marlin 1894 Limited Edition Cowboy 20” octagon barrel in 45LC. The fit and finish on this is excellent. As most of you know who watch the ads, I only list top notch stuff, and this is no exception. Has 50 rounds through it, and the Beartooth Mercantile safety delete was installed. Box...
"JM" marked but stamped poorly , 1895CB SOLD Marlin in 45/70. Made in 2004 so there's no way it was a Remington gun, with a 26" tapered oct. barrel. Blue is not new but close, several small "safe ding" dents in the uncheckered wood. Bore is very nice.
Only trade interest would be a Uberti...
Selling my 1999 Colt Cowboy Single Action in .45 Colt. Blue/Case hardened finish. 5 1/2" barrel. Like New/Excellent condition. Only noticeable wear in the finish is a tiny bit of muzzle wear which is visible in the photos. Comes with the original numbers matching box and an extra set of grips...
Its time I finally scratched this itch. Would like to try before I jump in. I have a TCGC membership and am action range certified. Fast drawing is not allowed at the club but I'd like to get the feel of a true raced fast gun and holster. Of course any ammo/supplies I would cover. I do have...
Well my reloading dies won't arrive for a while and I "need" to pick up a box of 45LC Cowboy (low velocity) rounds.
Anyone know of a store in Vancouver or the PDX area that would have some in stock that you've seen? Trying to avoid calling/driving to every possible location.
Thanks in advance!
An old man wearing a cowboy hat and looking like character actor Wilford Brimley, caught a robber armed with a revolver off guard, and managed to subdue him with the help of store employees.
The moral of this story? Never turn your back on an old cowboy.
This video is very good quality...
