Like others, I enjoyed the gun shop scene - even if it was fabricated. Gault joined the Texas Rangers later in life (age 47), but had been a running buddy of Hamer's for years before that. The thing that struck me was that all the men wore coat and tie, no matter what the weather. My Dad talked about how in the 30s his father's suit was so worn out they had to use shoe polish on the pockets and cuffs where the frayed parts wouldn't show. I LUST after one of those Model 8s.
