Being a SE Texas boy myself I have a definite affinity with that. I like it, a lot.

Nice looking combo. To me, the stocks/grips are unique in that they are more detailed than the ones I recall coming across years ago in the border towns. However, the possibility does exist that I wasn't frequenting the higher end shops.............Hummmmmm hardcase60

Well at one time, the Texas panhandle extended up into our ranch in SE Wyoming. I guess that kinda explains my likin' that kind of rig.

We still kinda think of you as a southern suburb.

Iggy,
I have a large framed copy of a map of the Republic of Texas as it was in 1845 which shows that relatively narrow strip of land that extends northward from NM up through Colorado into SE Wyoming. The map is hanging on the wall in our living room here in west Texas. Nice to know that we have "roots" in the Republic of Texas! I think we'd both have enjoyed living in it during the mid 1800's! I'm bettin' there were very few "suburbs" back then ...

What makes you think Iggy wasn't around in the 1800's?
Heck, he may be the reason Texas gave it up to Wyoming!

Kthom, that panhandle came up over the top of that distant bluff about half a mile. That's Como Bluff a famous dinosaur fossil site. The Transcontinental ran right along the face of that bluff too. That bluff is about 20 miles away.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid blew up a train about 3 miles to the left of this picture.

Still ain't many suburbs in that area today.

RV4driver,

Yup, one day ol Pecos Bill come ridin' into Medicine Bow on that panther of his, he hung that Diamond Back rattler he used as a whip around the saddle horn and run into the Virginian Hotel and asked for a pint of whisky.

He drank it down in one gulp and started out the door.. A feller asked him what his hurry?

He said "I heard that mean old Iggy is lookin' for me and I got to git out of here." He got on that panther, whupped it up with that thar snake and headed south.

Never was seen in these parts agin.

Gave rise to one of the great lines from the movie, "Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?"

That is what I call "FLASHY"! I think I would be afraid to take it to the range. Bob
