Breathtaking Chuck, why would museums look for originals when they have Wild Rose?

A couple questions while we have the masters attention, are these conchos aged or old? Also I'm a scatter gun guy so the Rangers belt really intrigues me(easily done!), store bought paper shotshells about 1850? or earlier, I understand they were readily available by the Civil War. Also that belt would appear to be close to 5" wide, comfortable at that width? Thanks and as always a pleasure........Randy

" As I walked out on the streets of Laredo " Chuck your work is amazing in finish, detail and authenticity. I can just picture a Texas Ranger riding into town with one of those rigs on - knowing he had a job to do and wondering if this one would be his last.

The conchos are aged - the larger ones on the belt came from Indian Jewelry Supply (www.ijsinc.com) The smaller ones on the holster are from Buffalo Brothers.
Ranger belts with multiple cartidge types like this are a product of the 1890's and early 1900's. According to my research paper shotshells weren't produced until sometime in the 1860's at earliest and "The C.D. Leet Company of Springfield, Massachusetts, is often credited with making the first paper-hull shotshells, perhaps in the early 1860s and certainly by 1869, when it obtained a patent" http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/nebland/articles/history/shotshells.asp. Even then brass shells were more widely used until the late 1870's.
These style belts ran between 4.5-5.5" in period and are of the "money" belt style which are body conforming. As to whether comfortable at that width - depends on body shape - I've got snake hips so these real wide belts don't like to stay in place easily - suck in a breath and I wind up looking like one of those "gangsta" types with their britches down around their hips or their around my ankles and that taint cool!

Thanks to all for your nice comments - they are much appreciated.

Seved - sw your new rig - Cliff does some mighty fine work for sure! I have some work over in Sweden as well from a few years ago.

Hellgap - I already where a size 8 1/8 hat - can't get much bigger!

Chuck, thanks for the answers and the link. fascinating reading. Scatter guns fit my shooting style and eyesight; short range and multiple projectiles, puts the advantage back in the home court. Again, beautiful work.........Randy

Dang Chuck that is some sweeeeeet stuff right there. Every last piece is extraordinary to say the least. If my wife saw me looking at this post she'd say "Quit looking at that porn!" Now that's the kind of leather I could get into.
