The Buscadero, of course, while a staple of Cowboy movies was invented in the 20s as i recall.

  • Did 2-gun rigs really exist before the motion picture era started? I know there is controversy about buscadero style rigs and some might have existed based on some old photos, but 2-gun rigs?... more

              I can say this--i have owned or seen many, many 1890s/early 1900s holsters. I have never seen a Buscadero from that era
