Holster

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

For hip or horse

or in a strap hanging

supporting metal

and gunpowder.

.

Best place to make

others feel fear, holsters.

Best space for feeling

courageous, you wimpy

all your life wannabes.

.

Invented to allow

humans to be "packing"

to intimidate and cause

fear or serve as the ultimate

warning. There is always

a bigger holster.

.

Too many with full holsters

think of themselves as the one

hitching a ride to the chamber,

the trigger, the barrel, and

highly laquered handle. Death

will look reallly good, weilded

in style like the wild wild.

.

Who invented the holster?

It must have a family history,

Probably a distant relative

of the hilt's scabbard or

bayonet's sling. Do they

have those for small

bazookas?

Cowboy Classics

Still in the box, imagine what a fake silver toy gun from 1950 would be worth today. We grew up in the heyday of Westerns, Audy Murphy and John Wayne. Pop guns and strips of caps - I remember those. Big fun.  :D slc
