    never know what will turn up

    Looking for something and uncovered this photo. Back is dated 1988. I was obviously at some event. Not the usual pre-1830 outfit for me. Dunno what the event was. But, the guns were mine, a Colt 1851 Navy revolver and a double-barreled 14 gauge muzzle loading shotgun.
    For those who think I never act normal, this will convince 'em fer sure.

    No, but it is a neat one.
    I don't remember the event at all.
    And, my dress and guns are not usual for me. My historical area of interest was before the percussion ignition came along. I'm strictly a flintlock man. I owned those guns but wouldn't have been seen in public with them.
    Oh, well.

    Not my get-up. I was a warm body for a photo shoot, and they decided since I have the long blonde hair that I should be the Chieftain.

    Hey Frank I like the holster and the gun. I prefer the percussion era its good old Duke era.

    Hey Vaughn boy you look the part. Wow so authentic I thought the Vikings had landed in the USA. Only problem is it would have been a long trek to end up where you are and i guess they would have ditched all the heavy metal and clothing due to the heat by the time they got there.

    Its a great picture and I guess a memorable event for you.
    cheers

    Well... when we are young we all make things that we'll regret later specially if there are visual proofs of what we did.
