Beware of really old dudes carrying really old guns

Heh!  I ran into an old-timer yesterday (defined as a living human at least a dozen years older than I am) whose choice for concealed carry is the above.  Now, this guy owns over a hundred pieces so it is not like he is stuck with some random relic of days gone by; he knows his guns and decided that if it was "good enough back then it is good enough now."  (BTW, he disclosed that, for the sake of propriety, he did use a 1918 vintage Colt Government Model to qualify for his carry license / permit ... indoor ranges usually will not allow black-powder cartridges).

Yep, those are vintage ivory stocks (grips).

Fodder is .44 Russian if I heard correctly.

Now there's an old gentleman with style.

That he is, my friend ... that he is, indeed.

Lots of loud flashiness in this strange new world ... subtle classiness is a rare treat ...

The nice thing about a black-powder .44 is, if the bad guy doesn't fall down, you can get away in the smokescreen.
That's why my home defense gun is a Brown Bess. (With the triangular bayonet that makes un-sew-up-able holes.)
