    Anyone on here old enough to remember the "Rebel" with Nick Adams? Watched it all the time on TV when I was a kid and was just trying to remember what revolver he had.It was set at the end of the civil war and his holster was a military style of that time line but I can't remember what the gun was. Sure wish they would bring back the westerns, "ain't nothing on now but crap!" :mad: Mike

    I don't think he had a revolver, but instead carried a cut-down Winchester model 92 rifle in a sort of break-front holster.

    OK, It looks like the shotgun must have been it but there was another western that I think was called the Bounty Hunter and he carried a sawed off lever action in a holster.....I think. I can see the guys face but I can't remember his real name for the life of me!

    Joab nailed it! :D

    Since watching "Johnny Yuma" as a wee lad, I always wanted a sawed-off shotgun in a hip holster.

    Right up to the time I test-fired some full-house oo buck through the 10" bbl M870 "Stakeout Special" my old unit kept on hand! :what: OUCH!

    Now, I have some adapters to allow firing .410 shells from a 12 gauge single-barrel or double; maybe I oughtta reconsider an AOW. :cool:

    And his name in the series was Josh Randall. I always liked Steve Mcqueen in whatever he was in, maybe because I always associated him back to that first introduction as the bounty hunter.

    Steve

    Sundance, My head is always hearing or singing the theam from Jonny Yuma and the worse one is Palliden ("Have Gun Will Travel" ) I still remember having made bussiness cards made like his with the knight drawn on it that I had made from construction paper my Mom gave me.I passed them out to everyone I seen.:)
    If I did that today the cops would arrest my butt and question me on advertising being a hit man:D


    Steve, Steve McQueen was great as an actor! Another one I always liked was Paul Newman "Cool Hand Luke". Watched that movie many times in black and white and I hope they never color it. I think he would have made a really good cowboy. :) Mike

    In those day's they had gay dudes playing cowboys. Forgot about that until you mentioned "The Rebel." I believe he also played the lead character in "The Blob." (Lead human that is. I believe the blob was played by an Amoeba.)

    Yea, I remember Amoeba. Good actor but he wasn't worth a damn at twirling a Colt, not much for fingers. :D

    I've been looking at some old TV pictures of the Rebel and he did carry a revolver and the shotgun was just slug over his shoulder with that thong. I'm going to see If I can find some better one's so I can see the revolver up close.

    This is for you Sundance:
    The song was song by Johnny Cash.

    Johnny Yuma was a rebel
    He roamed through the west
    Did Johnny Yuma, the rebel
    He wandered alone

    He got fightin' mad
    This rebel lad
    He packed no star
    As he wandered far
    Where the only law
    Was a hook and a draw
    The rebel, Johnny Yuma

    [Repeat 1st verse]

    He searched the land
    This restless lad
    He was panther quick
    And leather tough
    If he figured that
    He'd been pushed enough
    The rebel, Johnny Yuma

    [Repeat 1st verse]

    Fightin' mad
    This rebel lad
    With a dream he'd hold
    'Til his dyin' breath
    He'd search his soul
    And gamble with death
    The rebel, Johnny Yuma

    One episode of The Rebel stands out in my mind. he had caught a very bad guy and was brining him in, the guy had tried to get away several times thoughout the episode and in the last scene Johnny tied his shotgun under the chin of the badguy,Cocked the hammers and they rode off. Johnny holding onto the thong or riata attached to the triggers of the Shotgun. Point being that the BG had to stay close and keep the riata slack or BOOM. Well the last second Johnny dropped the riata and the BG raced off trailing the riata......till it got wedged between two rocks.....Fade to black.....:what:

    The Lyrics:

    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Rawhide!

    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Though the streams are swollen
    Keep them dogies rollin'
    Rawhide!
    Rain and wind and weather
    Hell-bent for leather
    Wishin' my gal was by my side.
    All the things I'm missin',
    Good vittles, love, and kissin',
    Are waiting at the end of my ride

    CHORUS
    Move 'em on, head 'em up
    Head 'em up, move 'em on
    Move 'em on, head 'em up
    Rawhide
    Count 'em out, ride 'em in,
    Ride 'em in, count 'em out,
    Count 'em out, ride 'em in
    Rawhide!

    Keep movin', movin', movin'
    Though they're disapprovin'
    Keep them dogies movin'
    Rawhide!
    Don't try to understand 'em
    Just rope, throw, and brand 'em
    Soon we'll be living high and wide.
    My hearts calculatin'
    My true love will be waitin',
    Be waitin' at the end of my ride.

    Rawhide!
    Rawhide!

    Oh, another...
